Welcome to Bossa Studios! An immensely talented, daring, multicultural team of individuals (or as we like to call ourselves - Bossians!), who create extraordinary games that millions of people love, play and share every day.
Chances are, you know us as that quirky, London-based studio behind several critically acclaimed, YouTube-renowned hits, many of which have become an integral part of gaming meme culture (Shhh… I doctor now!). These include Surgeon Simulator, I Am Bread and the BAFTA-winning Monstermind.
At the heart of Bossa’s unique way of working - whether that’s ideation, development or even marketing - is a genuine passion for collaboration; collaboration between our teams, with our players, and with all the influencers and creators around the world who regularly play Bossa games to their audiences.
Our mission is to make the most memorable gaming experiences possible! And to that end, we host an office-wide Game Jam once a month. From HR, to Marketers, to Game Designers, everyone splits into small teams in order to make a brand new game based on that month’s particular theme. The impact this has on Bossa culture, in terms of creativity, autonomy and teamwork, is prolific! We create 5-10 new and always incredibly innovative jamlets (what we call our early playable games!) on a monthly basis, and over our nine years of existence, we’ve selected the best ones to be brought to market, half of which have gone on to become multi-million-dollars IPs.
We are now looking for a talented Game Developer to be part of our new Projects and Prototype team. This is an exciting opportunity as you will get to develop the game jam idea and see it through to full game release. You will be a Developer who can handle difficult problems and bring your development experience into new and innovative solutions.
