Sega of America Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Japan-based Sega Corp., develops and publishes video game software. The San Francisco-based company no longer makes its Dreamcast game console, but focuses solely on game development.

Sega makes games played on PCs, handheld devices, and consoles from Sony Corp., Microsoft Corp. and Nintendo Co. Ltd. Its most popular game series are based on franchise properties such as Sonic the Hedgehog and on licensed comic book characters including Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.

Parent company Sega Corp. joined forces with Sammy Corp. in 2004, forming Sega Sammy. In 2009, the company laid off 30 employees, or about 15% of its work force.


The company regularly hosts events for new games in San Francisco. Employees, members of the press, and fans come together to celebrate the launch of a new title. The shindigs are usually held in the Japantown neighborhood.

There is a game lounge in the company's San Francisco headquarters, where employees can test out and discuss new titles.


Sega of America Inc. actively recruits candidates for the following positions: senior online interactive designers, senior Flash developers, producers, publishing assistants, digital marketing coordinators, and managers of business operations.

The company prefers candidates to have Japanese language skills for certain U.S.-based positions, including publishing assistants.
