We Want You (To Join Our Team)!

Six to Start is growing! We’re looking for an Android Developer, a Javascript Developer, an Artist, and a Production Assistant to join our team to make Zombies, Run! even better, and to help develop brand new games that will be just as innovative, fun, and good for people as Zombies, Run!

We’re also experimenting with new game concepts that use smartphones, tablets, and other wearable devices and computers in novel ways, and we’d like more people to be part of that.

We get emails every day from people whose lives we’ve improved with our games – people who’ve lost weight, become healthier, and gained confidence. There’s nothing like knowing that your work is valued by hundreds of thousands and is doing good in the world.

Note: Most of the positions require that you’re based in or near London, but some (like the artist) are not.
 

ANDROID DEVELOPER (London)

The simultaneous release of Zombies, Run! 2 on Android and iOS shows that we take the Android platform extremely seriously, and we’re incredibly excited about taking advantage of the latest Android services and tech in ZR and in our new game. If that sounds like a fun challenge, then Six to Start is for you.

The Highlights

  • We require 1+ year experience of professional Android development.
  • We need you to show us something you have coded. It doesn’t need to be a game, it doesn’t need to have graphics, it doesn’t even have to have zombies, it just needs to be interesting.
  • You’re able to work from our office in Gospel Oak, London (nearest tubes: Kentish Town/Tufnell Park)
  • Salary is competitive, and dependent on experience.

Some of our intrepid developers!
 

JAVASCRIPT DEVELOPER (London)

We want an enthusiastic and agile Javascript developer who can help us develop games for the web, and compelling online experiences for our mobile games. And we want someone who can help us think up and create entirely new game concepts, branching out on to exciting new platforms and pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the web on mobile devices.

The Highlights

  • 1+ years experience of professional Javascript development, and/or an excellent portfolio of your own work.
  • A working knowledge of server-side development (in any language).
  • Experience with and a strong interest in mobile web development.
  • You’re able to work from our office in Gospel Oak (nearest tubes: Kentish Town/Tufnell Park)
  • Salary is competitive, and dependent on experience.

It’s a small farm, but it’s a start!
 

ARTIST (Remote or London)

Our new game will be much more visual than Zombies, Run! (which itself is more visual than the Season 1), so we’re looking to expand our team. Specifically, we want someone who can create illustrated-yet-realistic landscapes in 2D, along with the types of isometric 2D buildings we have in the Zombies, Run! Season 2 base.

The Highlights

This can either be a remote contract position, or a part-time on-site position (with the potential to turn into a full-time job).

  • We require familiarity with how art is processed during game development (e.g. working to code specs, making sure assets fit in, how they need to look on different devices, etc.)
  • You can mimic the painting style we currently use in Zombies, Run!
  • You have deep experience in Photoshop.
  • Salary is competitive, and dependent on experience.
