Moon Studios - award-winning creators of Ori and the Blind Forest and Ori and the Will of the Wisps - are looking for new team members! After redefining the Metroidvania genre with the Ori series, our next goal is to revolutionize the ARPG genre.
We encourage great combat designers to apply!
Join us and help us create some of the best games the industry has ever seen, and work with some of the most talented individuals in the world!
Please note that Moon Studios is a distributed development studio: Everyone at Moon works remotely and we accept job applications from participants all over the world!
We're looking for:
Individuals who can work autonomously - We don't count your hours, we won't micromanage you. Your job is to enchant us with your raw talent and professionalism!
Individuals who want to have a voice - Unhappy with the current state of the industry? Every person at Moon Studios has a voice and can help shape the games we're making.
Individuals who believe in collaboration - We work together as a team challenging the status quo and raising the bar!
Individuals who want to grow - Contrary to other AAA studios, our goal is to remain a comparatively small studio made of elite talent.

Since Moon Studios is a distributed game development studio, we work with talent from all around the world. To keep things personal and foster communication, we hold annual Team Retreats to touch base and figure out what challenges we want to tackle next.
We want you to be:
A Designer by heart: While playing games, you just intuitively know how to improve upon the weaker aspects of a title. You indulge in analyzing things that don’t quite work and love to think about how this or that aspect could have been perfected.
Experienced: You've worked in the industry before and know the ropes. You're looking for a studio to call home where you can voice your opinions and work with the best talent this industry has to offer!
Passionate: You’ve played and studied RPGs your whole life and you still can’t get enough of them. You have a love for all things Diablo, Zelda, Dark Souls and other games in the genre. You’d love the opportunity to work on an RPG that dares to innovate and go far beyond what the genre has offered players thus far.
Open to new challenges: We're constantly striving to raise the bar here at Moon Studios. We're not looking for specialists in one field or genre, we want you to be open to help wherever help is needed and be the well-rounded multi-talented creative genius you are.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Moon Studios:
We are a globally distributed development studio. At Moon Studios, we want people to love their work and show respect and empathy to all. We welcome differences and strive to increase participation from traditionally underrepresented groups.
