United Kingdom

ZA/UM is a video game studio that in 2019 released the award-winning role-playing game Disco Elysium. The studio re-located to the United Kingdom in 2018 and 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 multi-skilled Graphic Designer to fill a dynamic role which encompasses work for marketing and merchandising departments but will subsequently evolve to include in-game work for any new ZA/UM titles. The dynamic nature of the role will make it a challenging but a fulfilling experience for those passionate about graphic design and fan engagement. 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.
