Value Pillars

Transparency Speak your mind, collaborate, problem-solve. We’re in this together and and won’t tolerate politics or drama.

Accountability Take ownership and responsibility. Each of us is the difference between the team’s success and its failure.

Innovation Push the envelope, do something new, get comfortable at the fringes of your potential, and what’s possible. Learn to get excited by the phrase “it can’t be done.”

Resourcefulness If you know how to do something, do it. Wear multiple hats. Do whatever it takes to get from zero to a fun game in player’s hands, and get there as fast as reasonably possible.

Optimization You’re open to feedback, believe in failing quickly and often, and never stop growing - personally and professionally. Find every way to improve by 2%.

Community The player comes first. You validate your ideas through player sentiment. You’re data-driven and believe UX research is the heart of making games.

Passion You believe in the future of spatial computing. You engage with XR apps beyond the bare minimum necessary for work.

Hiring Process

After a screening, most processes will have two (2) interviews with the team. These will either cover technical/role specific skills and/or studio core skills. This may vary depending on the role or context.

The interview stages will be done in a panel or one-on-one format with a hiring manager and/or key members of the hiring team. Some interviews may be split or sequential where interviewers are booked individually with a shorter interview format depending on availability.

Some processes may have an at-home assignment or test as its own stage, or prior to a specific interview. In these instances the Talent team will let you know the task or test, and the timeline for completion.

Reminders & Best Practices


Tailor Your Application

  • Look over your resume. Ensure your resume is succinct yet impactful. Fine tune where appropriate to authentically connect yourself to the role.
    • Tip: Making a resume/portfolio modular can help with curating it. Do this by dividing your resume into sections or themes.
  • Find a neat layout that speaks to you and is easy for review. Make sure to balance whitespace on your resume.
  • If a portfolio is needed, make sure direct or parallel skillsets are showcased in your work.
    • Tip: check your hyperlinks and if a site is password-protected, be sure to share the password with your application.
  • Include specifics and quantifying information such as: number of people managed, technology used, and area(s) you focused on in team projects.
  • If you decide to include a cover letter, we encourage you to personalize it.

AI Approach

  • Many of our interviews are supported by to assist us with recorded note taking, this helps us keep focus on the conversation we are having with candidates.
  • Our Applicant Tracking System (ATS), Humi, utilizes basic AI functionality to compare an application to core skills identified when posting. This is not a sole identifier for applications, a member of our team will review an application prior to moving it along.

Application Emails

  • Always check your junk mail as emails sent from our ATS may end up there depending on security settings.

Discretion Mindfulness

  • When required, please review and sign the Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) to support the interview process.
  • We ask you to be respectful of sensitive material you may have or gain knowledge of - either under our NDA, other NDAs or intellectual property policies you may be under.

Do Your Research

  • Topics around the industry, project and role (ie. role-specific language) may come up. Make sure you are familiar with these, if you’re unsure - please ask in your meeting(s).

Practice Makes Comfortable

  • Research and practice for interviews are recommended, however it is always valuable to ensure you sound natural and be yourself.
    • Tip: Use pauses, where possible, rather than crutch words / terms. (ie. "um", "er", "so", "and stuff", etc.)

Do a Tech Check

  • Check your camera, audio settings, and internet connection.
  • Ensure you are in a quiet, private area with consistent service.
  • Make sure there’s enough battery on any technology - or even better, plug in where possible.
  • If a bandwidth issue comes up, have an alternate method available, ie. cable internet, using a phone instead of a computer, etc.

Be Camera / Speaker Ready

  • Find a space where you can be focused and comfortable. Use a quiet, well-lit area, keep a neutral background (photo) or a blurred filter.
  • We know living spaces are dynamic: sometimes kids, partners or pets come in, or an alarm goes off. Use headphones to keep focus and minimize background noises where possible.
  • Switch off or enable “do not disturb” mode on devices around you.
  • Have your resume and other submitted files nearby for reference if needed.

Showcase Who You Are

  • Have fun and enjoy the process. Screenings and interviews can feel nerve-wracking, our role is to help bring your full self to the meeting.
  • Show us your contributions and how you think. We want to hear about any related motivations and interests.
  • We value unique perspectives and what makes you - you! Let us know what you “nerd out” about and relevant areas of interest.
  • Bring your whole self and your intersectional vantage points.
  • Connect your experiences to the role by showcasing directly or transferrable situations/skills.
  • We do not expect you to know everything, let us know your key attributes and thought process.
  • Where comfortable, share your chosen/preferred name or nickname, and pronouns.

Give The "Why”

  • Be detailed while staying succinct and on point.
    • Tip: Interviews are time-bound, be mindful of the clock and how to condense responses as appropriate.
  • Share specifics and steps - through technical excellence, accomplishments and situations, or through the STARR (situation, task, action, result, relevance) method.
  • Demonstrate critical thinking and rationale.

Follow Up

  • Updates and statuses should come in a timely manner. If you have not heard from us about next steps please reach out to the Talent team.
  • Ask clarifying questions that come to mind in the interview or via email.
  • Lean into your curiosity, we are happy to answer questions wherever possible!

Portfolio Guide

Share Your Shine

  • Show what areas of interest you are and if you have a specialization(s) or are a generalist.
  • Though some candidates may have a technical focus - this still relates to art, animation and design. A portfolio may still be asked for.
  • If an asset was made by a team, detail which parts you focused on.

Succinctly Curated

  • Quality over quantity: tailor a portfolio/website/reels to relate to content that may be parallel to the critical need of the role at hand and the studio’s style (such as realism vs stylized).
  • If you have a website, such as an ArtStation or Wix, think of foldering by work type (VFX, animation, etc).
  • For reels, try to have time-stamps or split them for different types of projects.
  • Where suited, have pieces be as recent as possible to show your current aptitude.

Progress Stages

  • Just as teachers may have asked to “show your work”, it is fantastic to understand the process of how a piece is made. A production lifecycle does not start with final output. 
  • Showcase your decision making process / evolution, which could be creative, time-bound, or technical. This also includes expressing how long pieces took to complete.
  • Ensure to also include any references and any tool formatting (ie. generators in Speedtree, wireframes / rigs for characters).

Real-Time Output

  • Assets may look completely different in and out of engine, or for cinematics vs gameplay.
  • Show how a piece would run in real-time based off of draw calls, reusability in space, and mindfulness of budgets.

What if my current work is under NDA?

  • How possible, describe what kind of work or assets you have worked on within your resume in your current role.
  • Include recent pieces that you can share outside of NDAs (such as personal projects).

Can I apply to more than one job posting?

  • Yes! Find the right opportunities that speak to you. As you explore opportunities, see what aligns with your skillset, aptitudes and interests.
  • If your first application with our studio is not selected, that does not mean we are outright not interested in your profile. It means at that point in time an array of scenarios could be at play such as: we could have been looking for a specific skillset to match our critical need, where we were in the hiring process when you applied, or that there was just a large pool of qualified applicants. We welcome you to apply to the positions you see fit, and not to be discouraged.
