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


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

We are about to celebrate our 6th birthday and 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 Arbeta, 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 Circuit Training.
