ABOUT US:
Fireproof Games was formed in 2008 as an art outsourcing company collaborating on projects such as Little Big Planet and Killzone (among many others). In 2011 we started releasing original games of our own, starting with the BAFTA winning mobile hit, The Room. Since then we’ve released four sequels, all of which has garnered critical praise for our egos and commercial success for our business. 

Our philosophy is that by working smartly and hiring the best candidates, we can deliver games that delight our audience while avoiding the stress and long hours that are common at other companies.

Fireproof Games is an equal opportunities employer hoping to attract applications from diverse backgrounds. Recruitment selection is based on objective, job-related criteria. Candidates will be chosen on their merits and abilities
