SALARY

We offer a competitive salary, which is dependent on experience.

OVERVIEW

Fabrik is a unique independent studio looking to expand its highly experienced team in Manchester.

Having just celebrated our 5th birthday with a collaborative studio rebrand, we looked back on the previous titles we have worked on including, Filthy Lucre, The Lost Bear and The Persistence which received high Metacritic scores over 77 and 78 respectively.

We are currently looking at expanding our team up to 30 by December 2020 as we are working on a globally recognised sci-fi/horror, AAA cross-platform title for the next 2.5 years.

Over the next 5 years, Fabrik will be bringing the development of world-class games to market with new IP creation always at its heart. This will be done through co-development opportunities and working on future-facing platforms which means further expansion into a different genre of games and technologies.

The Studio prides itself on a good work/life balance, with flexible working around core hours in a friendly and relaxed environment.

Based at The Sharp Project, we are just 10 minutes away from the vibrant Manchester city centre, with excellent transport links and free parking in the large car park next to the building.

Free weekly exercise classes are available for all staff, including Yoga and Meditation.

We are looking for a highly skilled and motivated Technical Designer who can work with us to develop exciting experiences, in a welcoming studio where you will be integral in shaping our team and games. In joining our team, you would have the opportunity to take ownership of key components of the production of a full game and further develop your skills and career.
