Why HLG?
For many games developers at your level in the industry, having a desire to improve both inside and outside work is a key and motivating factor and Hyper Luminal Games are here to help. It’s important that any studio environment embraces progression for you to grow and understands the required learning that meets that progression. Hyper Luminal will tailor your learning.

Equally the work and the projects need to be engaging and fun, development and creativity are the essence of having fun. We don’t stifle creativity; in fact, we continuously encourage it. You won’t be working in a cubicle and there’s no expectation of silence, engage and interact as much as you like!

We are in the business of creating great content and making a difference with every project we work on, whether it’s Work for Hire, or our own original I.P. Part of this is knowing that as a team member you will be recognised for your skill and effort, and within a culture of ‘praise’ that means coming to work is more than just earning money.

You’ll have the opportunity to work with the latest technologies, ensuring the applications delivered on time, within budget and to the highest possible quality. You’ll have the capability to influence the choice and extent of processes, procedures and projects. You’ll be responsible for delivering expertly crafted schedules, managing project operations and communicating with clients & partners within various contexts across the business.

You are encouraged to be as good as you can be and there are systems in place within the studio to support you to do just that. Incremental improvement is our aim and all team members are involved in what and how that evolves.

If this feels like a place where you can thrive and grow, with the team, the projects and the studio, then apply for this position and let’s explore working together!
