At League of Geeks (LoG) we’re set to get even bigger and better throughout this year! During this exciting time of expansion we’re looking for you, an enthusiastic engineer who can dedicate your passion for game development to improving the experiences we deliver to our players.

We need engineers who are generalists and this is an excellent opportunity to learn new skills alongside an existing team of seasoned developers, whilst having a major impact on the experiences we create and deliver across the company. You will collaborate with other disciplines to help design and implement new features in games, amongst many other objectives. Although you will be greatly supported in achieving these goals, in order to do so you will possess great initiative and an ability to handle multiple responsibilities well and with ease.

We are committed to building one of the best working environments in the world, with a genuine focus on well being, skill development, and the correct ratio of pot plants to humans.

If you’re keen to work with one of the world’s leading independent studios and help us create our new and exciting, original IP, we'd love to hear from you!

Women and other underrepresented developers, please apply! We pride ourselves on our inclusive work environment and output, so we’d love to work with you.
