About Games Jobs Live

Games Jobs Live events are livestream events that go out on YouTube which are free and open to all attendees, whether they already work in the industry, another industry, or have recently graduated and are looking to join.

The events showcase the best local game development studios with active vacancies – with each studio succinctly presenting who they are, what they’ve done, and most importantly, who they’re desperately looking for.

Each studio will have their own dedicated chat channel on a Discord so you can follow up with any questions to them, and if you like what you hear, just apply directly.
