This month Electric Square have taken over the Games Jobs Direct homepage. Not only have they made the website look absolutely gorgeous with their imagery, but they've also got 13 vacancies open at the studio right now, Including:
Founded in 2015 by industry veterans Jon Gibson and Tony Beckwith, Electric Square sprang to life as the sister studio of the award-winning Studio Gobo. In 2018, Electric Square proudly became a part of the wider keywords studio group.
Based in a former electric house, the studio has taken more than a few branding cues from their 1930s building that the studio inhabits. The gorgeous art-deco inspired artwork is prevalent across their studio's assets and you can see them across the Games Jobs Direct homepage until the end of September.
As a specialised work-for-hire studio, Electric Square has worked on a number of projects with amazing partners such as Microsoft and Amazon Game Studios. As a fiercely creative studio, they love to work on multiple projects with a focus on working with great partners, on great games based on incredible IP.
Their mission statement is emblazoned across their homepage:
'We provide world-class game development services for the biggest and best partners in the industry."
As well as working on interesting and varied projects they also have a strong focus on employee welfare. Electric Square are all about fostering a highly collaborative culture that can constantly push the boundaries of what the studio can achieve. They're big believers in work/life balance and giving their staff the flexibility they need to make this happen. And this has paid off with them being named one of the best medium-sized companies at the Games Industry Best Place to Work Awards 2019.
If that sounds like your sort of studio, make sure to check out their vacancies!
Keep Calm and waka waka...
