What’s it like to be a Hippo…? 

Well, you would get to be a part of a team that values collaboration and the creative freedom to produce and make games in a studio that oozes work ethic & creative ‘crazy’.

Hippo’s hang out, they understand that being a part of something that is bigger than “one” is just super rewarding … and it’s fun. Yeah, we have the ‘usual’; foosball & ping pong, but we also have the unusual in a game studio that goes beyond perks and free snacks, we actually “LIKE” and respect each other, and celebrate the uniqueness that we all rock!

We trust and value each other’s opinions and are stoked when we all succeed and share in that wild ride, because success is not easy.

Our tribe is definitely unlike most and we want to keep it that way, we like it unusual, a little weird and a lot bold. Interested? …sweet, we’d love to see what you’ve been up to and where you’d like to see yourself go.

Vision, Mission & Our Culture: 

We envision a world where our global community is always excited to play our next game. We believe entrepreneurs will rally passionate teams to grow the best games. 

Happy Life, Happy Hippo: 

We care about making great games because we love games and are rewarded for our hard work in spades. Our benefits and working vibe encourage and allow you to live your dreams in Kelowna: an affordable, picturesque, and diverse city, only an hour flight from Vancouver, BC Canada.

 

We believe entrepreneurs will rally passionate teams to grow the best games.
