WORKING WITH US
Metalhead Software is a small but growing game studio in downtown Victoria, BC. We’re a tight-knit team that pours a ton of passion into our own original, high-quality content and we have a lot of fun doing it.
You won’t find us chasing industry trends or implementing exploitative gimmicks. We simply focus on polished, gameplay-first titles aimed to please our community. We take our craft very seriously but at the same time you’ll find our day-to-day work environment is about as casual as it gets. We try to keep it light around here – you gotta have fun to build fun!
We work in the sports genre right now, but our personal interests span the whole gamut of gaming (from board games to twitch shooters to JRPGs) and we aim to channel our diverse inspirations into fresh, well-implemented ideas in the sports genre.
We’re still small enough that any one of us is usually jumping between a few areas over the course of a project rather than working in a single specialization. That doesn’t mean we don’t like specialists (we do!) but if you happen to be interested in developing some secondary skills beyond your main thing, that’s probably something that jives well with us.
We’re still a small squad and we need to jump around between different areas over the various stages of a project. Your role during pre-production could look quite different by the time we’re on the home stretch before a release, so we’re looking for someone whose Mojo is well suited to that.
This position will have you building interfaces and screens for a large multi-platform sports title. You will work closely with the engineering and gameplay teams to realize and quickly iterate on new concepts, as well as finish and polish the final product. Your tasks will include creating static concepts and promotional graphics, building and animating engine-ready game assets, and channeling feedback from team members and users into iterative improvements on existing game interfaces.
Let us know how your experience relates to the qualifications below. We would also like to hear which type(s) of work you're most excited to spend your time on.
Regardless of your specialization, a few things we’re looking for:
We’re looking for the right personality as much as (actually probably more than) the right skill set, and are open to different levels of experience/seniority.
