How to apply

To apply, just send us an email. In your message, please:

  • Say which role you're interested in.
  • Say where you're located.
  • Include a traditional resume.
  • Be concise and focus on showing the things you've created. YouTube videos of your games, art, or projects are great starting points for this.
  • For programmers, please include links to code you've written. Bigger projects are best, especially if we can see whole projects and how they fit together.

We are based in Canada but can hire internationally. We generally start with a trial contract.

Ludeon's mission is to make creatively-vivacious, original, provocative, and engaging games. Our team members come from diverse origins and hold many different beliefs. Please be ready to work on this mission with people who might think differently from you.

About 
Ludeon Studios

Ludeon Studios is an independent game developer and creator of the hit sci-fi colony management simulator RimWorld. We love deep PC games and story generators.

 

Why working with us is awesome

We have been fully remote since our founding in 2013.

We don't crunch - ever. It's never happened, not for one person, not for one day or for one hour.

There is no required time to be online. We collaborate asynchronously, so you can choose your own hours and days to work.

Your work will make people happy, and you'll see that. Our team is small, so you'll own specific things and see people engaging with them.

We work on games that explore novel ideas and new game design concepts. Every product tries to do something that has never been done before.

Our team is small, so there's room to take on different kinds of tasks and to grow into new skills.

Our game community is full of knowledgeable, friendly, creative, thoughtful people.

 

Ludeon is wholly owned by Tynan Sylvester, a game creator. This means that unlike at investor-owned companies, our company strategy does not focus on boosting short-term growth metrics. Ludeon seeks to build long-term success by making creatively-rich products with a stable group of talented team members. At the end of it all, we want to be proud of what we've created and how we've treated team members and players.
