Careers with Dlala Studios

Whilst we aren’t ever looking to get too big, through fear of losing our family feel, we are always interested in meeting twisted individuals, just like ourselves, who are passionate about making games.

We may be a small studio hidden away in Essex (not really that hidden actually – we are just 40 minutes by train from London), but we have already worked with some of the biggest companies in the world; creating games with partners such as Disney, Microsoft and the Institute for Creative Technologies.

As a studio, we are completely staff-driven, offering competitive salaries, flexibility and perks for all team members.

We believe in everyone having a voice in the company and that all ideas are valid, no matter where they come from. So, if you are an open-minded person (who doesn’t mind bad language), and want to create awesome games, with awesome people, we would love to hear from you.
