We are entering the most exciting time in the studio's history, with our largest slate of games in development ever, across multiple genres and platforms.

All of our positions will be onboarded remotely, and work remotely, for a significant part of 2021, as we continue to assess the ongoing and uncertain COVID-19 situation.

We believe people work at their best when they can collaborate in person, but understand that everyone has different needs, and are working on an inclusive flexible policy to reflect that.

Winner of multiple Best Companies Awards, we are advocates for work-life balance, and offer a comprehensive benefits package focused on the well-being of our staff and their families.

This vacancy is open to candidates that currently have a legal right to work in the UK. We cannot provide work permits for our entry level positions at this time.
