The successful candidate
Perhaps you’ve spent one too many nights up late gaming… Possibly you have a vendetta for fruit… Either way, you love games and more specifically, you love our games and you want to be part of creating something special! If you think you have what it takes to raise our talent bar, then you’re exactly what we’re looking for.
At Halfbrick, we have an emphasis on generalists to help us reach our goals – people who are explorers and learners and have a diverse knowledge to draw from (or interested in obtaining one). We understand and appreciate specialized talent but we encourage all of our Bricks to generalize their skillset so they can collaborate effectively and see the bigger picture. And don’t worry, you don’t have to already be a generalist – becoming one is as easy as:
- Saying yes to new opportunities
- Dabbling in different things
- Never stop improving (there’s always new things to learn)
- Mind your gaps (identify what you’re missing and bridge the gaps)
