Generic search string to find Game Developers

Build Boolean strings for game developers according to your needs:

  • -job -jobs -sample -examples, to avoid irrelevant results
  • (Developer OR engineer), to cover variations of the same job title
  • (intitle:resume OR intitle:cv), to discover candidates’ online resumes or CVs

Here’s an example of a generic search string that you can further modify to find resumes:

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) (“game developer” OR “game programmer”) -job -jobs -sample -examples

When running this command in Google, you’ll get results that include the words “resume” or “CV” in the page title. Excluding more terms reduces false positives.

Searching for Game Developer profiles

Search for Game Developers on specific sites through Google by including the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • site:github.com “game developer” “joined on”
  • site:stackoverflow.com/users/ “badges” “game developer”

Add more criteria in your Boolean search string for game developers to find profiles that better match your requirements.

When sourcing EU candidates, please refer to guidance on using social media for recruiting and collecting candidate information as per the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.
