FULL-TIME | B.C. OR ALBERTA

Humanoid Studios is a new videogame company founded on the axiom that creative freedom and independence lead to better, more innovative games. We believe in the power of small, agile teams, and a flat organizational structure, where everyone is empowered to make decisions and help drive the project vision.

We are a Canadian company with offices in B.C. and Alberta, offering a flexible work environment combining from-home, in-office, and remote work – as well as industry-leading compensation and benefits.  By joining Humanoid, you will be welcomed into a diverse team of talented developers creating an immersive new universe of story, character, and discovery.      

Role Description

With the ability to push for quality across multiple creative disciplines, and a passion for developing innovative new approaches, you will bring together all aspects of the game experience into a powerful cohesive vision.
