What we do and how we approach it.

  • New and established IP. Opportunities to work on both exciting new IP and globally-recognised licensed properties
  • Hybrid remote working model. We love to be with our colleagues so all staff are welcome to work onsite at all times, but if you want to work from home that is your choice to make!
  • Flexible start times. To help ease the pressure when our mornings just don’t go as we planned…
  • Unlimited holiday. Yep, you read that right!

Who said you can't have your cake and eat it?

  • Free drinks and snacks. A ‘healthy’ supply of snacks and drinks is always available to staff working on site
  • Planned fun. Team away days, research trips, team holidays and celebrations!
  • Unplanned fun. We just love a spontaneous lunchtime team BBQ!

Work Location: Remote/Hybrid/In-House (Witham, Essex)

Working With Us

Our independence and the ability for everyone to know each other as more than just a passing face in the office is important to us. However, we are always meeting passionate game makers who wanted to join our bunch of twisted individuals.

Whilst we like to think we’re Essex’s best hidden secret, we’re actually only a single train ride away from London (35 minutes) and have worked with some of the biggest companies in the world; collaborating with partners such as Microsoft, Disney, Rare and the Institute for Creative Technologies.

We believe in everyone having a voice in the company and that all ideas are valid, no matter where they come from. So, if you are an open-minded person (who doesn’t mind bad language), and want to create awesome games, with awesome people, we would love to hear from you.
