Besides the above we’re looking for someone aligned with our core values and the following skills and experience:

Good to know

We aim to build a team that continuously pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in game development, and because we love to learn and grow from the people around us, we might ask you to complete a practical test as a part of the recruitment process.
