**This position has been closed.**

ZA/UM is a video game studio that in 2019 released the award-winning role-playing game Disco Elysium. The studio has offices in London and Brighton. Currently, the team is composed of around 30 writers, artists, developers, and producers and we are expanding!

The role

We are looking for a skilled UI/UX Designer to join our team and aid in bringing the acclaimed PC gaming experience to new audiences via localization, transporting the game to other gaming platforms, and ensuring that our game is accessible to the widest possible audience.

The job includes collaborating with an international team of producers, designers, and engineers.

The position will eventually include work for any new ZA/UM titles.

The job can (initially) be done remotely, and it is a full-time position.

While we prefer applicants with a right to work in the UK, candidates without it will still be considered due to the remote nature of the work. However, we do not foresee ourselves sponsoring visas in the short term.
