About Mikutech / Joydrop 

Mikutech is a full service agency specializing in high-quality custom applications, technical consulting and creative solutions. Joydrop is the brand for all Mikutech's gaming ventures. They were established by Mark Mikulec, a veteran game developer on titles like Warframe and Bioshock, an architect of 3D graphic engines and a visionary who has been at the forefront of VR/AR long before its recent popularity. 

Working at Mikutech, and its gaming brand of Joydrop, means working elbow to elbow with respected industry professionals and up-and-comers in code, art and design. It also means you'll not only be given the chance to show off your expertise and finesse, but learn alongside similarly ambitious people. 

Mikutech is located in London, Ontario. London possesses a large game developer community and is also a great party town. We believe to work hard, you also need to occasionally party even harder. We share our downtown, co-working office with other small companies; we're all doing unique and interesting things and all made up of good people. You'll never experience anything like it (and if you have, you know how great it is!) We'll help you find a place to live in London as well. It's cheaper to live here than in Guelph or Toronto.
