Here is just one of the many, many positions being advertised right now.

Creative DirectorNix Hydra

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Hello, welcome to our posting for a Creative Director. We need a Creative Director badly, but since we are uncompromising in our vision we are still very picky about it. If this is a trait you also share, read on.

Nix Hydra is seeking an authentic, passionate, and imaginative individual to join our creative team. We are interested in making games with the following qualities:

Magic - The extra details that are normally overlooked, but when included create a sense of awe.

Character - The color, life and creativity that fill out a well rounded world.

Accessibility - A language of interaction for a wide audience that doesn’t rely on the established and often insular language of the gaming industry.

Does this appeal to you? This is the perfect opportunity for someone likeminded who loves working on small teams and having a voice that’s heard in a productive and collaborative work environment. Perks include 3 day weekends! 

We expect everyone on the team to be competent, dedicated, proactive and take great pride in their craft. The proper candidate must also be passionate about and enjoy making games of any genre for a heavily female oriented target audience.

We will sponsor visas for absolutely exceptional candidates!
