Careers with Dlala Studios

Our independence and the ability for everyone to know each other as more than just a passing face in the office is important to us. However, we are always meeting passionate game makers who wanted to join our bunch of twisted individuals.

Whilst we like to think we’re Essex’s best hidden secret, we’re actually only a single train ride away from London (35 minutes) and have worked with some of the biggest companies in the world; collaborating with partners such as Microsoft, Disney, Rare and the Institute for Creative Technologies.

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.
