About Our Studio

We are a small-but-mighty team of game dev veterans from some of your favorite indie and AAA hits. Now we’re focused on building a brand-new, sustainable studio where we can use our experience to do the best work of our careers.

We are recently founded and looking for collaborators who will have an outsized impact on the game we are building, as well as the studio itself.


About Our Project

We are building a first person, single-player, science-fiction adventure in Unreal Engine 5. It’s an original IP, driven by exploration and rich narrative.

This role will always be on the lookout for the best ways to support a growing team and an evolving project.



  • Work with the Senior Producer to ensure day-to-day development is in line with our long-term plan
  • Lead daily status updates, planning/priority discussions, and weekly playtests
  • Regularly checking in with teammates & constantly evaluating how best to support them
  • Help ensure project task-tracking and dashboards are kept up to date



  • Proven experience in project management
  • Highly organized with excellent follow-through
  • Familiarity with modern production methodologies
  • Clear communicator; you are able to organize and present data very well
  • Independent and motivated - you are always looking to create excitement and drive progress for yourself and the team at large


Nice-to-have Skills and Experience

  • Experience in a small team setting, with plans to grow
  • Proven experience shipping software or video game products
  • Prior experience with: Perforce, Unreal Engine
  • Hands-on experience with game engines as a programmer, artist, or designer
  • Familiarity with programs such as SR&ED, OIDMTC, Ontario Creates


Work Culture + Expectations

  • We are a fully remote studio, with travel opportunities for events and/or team summits. Travel is optional for most roles.
  • We are distributed across North American time zones. Expect flexible work hours, prioritizing asynchronous communication, with meetings during shared core hours.
  • Anyone able to legally work in the USA or Canada may be considered. As an Ontario-based organization, those working from within Ontario are especially encouraged to apply.
  • Our language of communication is English. Fluency in written and spoken English will be important for you to fully participate in workplace discussions.
  • We value diverse experiences and opinions. We are actively and continually working on nurturing an environment of confidence, maturity, and mutual respect.
  • We are generally seeking full-time roles, but we are open to other arrangements based on your preferences and circumstances. Please indicate when applying if you are interested in discussing alternatives to full-time work.



We believe in wellness as a key to our success. Here’s how we are striving to achieve this:

  • Extended Health Benefits (Dental, Vision, Mental Health Support and more) active on your first day of work
  • Competitive vacation, sick leave and sabbatical policy
  • Flexible hours

As our team grows, we will continuously re-evaluate how we meet the needs of our team and modify our benefits offering as needed. We invite everyone in our team to give us feedback on how we can ensure wellness is a pillar of our employee’s experience.
