Game dev
Show us what the future of multiplayer games looks like. You bring the skills, ideas and ambition, we'll give you the tools, support and technology you need to create the best work of your career in a culture that lives and breathes multiplayer development.
At Improbable, we believe that the next revolution in entertainment and society will come from massive virtual worlds. They will create new economies and opportunities globally, changing not just how we play, but how we work and relate to each other. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to build the next generation of technologies for online multi-user games and simulations.
At Improbable, you are surrounded by people who want to improve everything and everyone around them, and who compel you to improve yourself. We’re motivated by the fulfillment of solving hard problems to achieve something profound and transformative.
Your Mission 
We believe that the Metaverse experiences of today are far from what players and participants deserve. We believe we can create a better looking virtual world, filled with people, novel experiences and meaningful interactions by leveraging our AAA game development experiences. 
We have already started this journey by holding a ScavLab event with over 4,000 players crowding into a single map to battle, and a Meet and Greet with K-Pop star AleXa attended by over a thousand fans who all got on stage at the same time.
Reporting to the World Lead and Art Director, your role is to help in the creation and delivery of high quality art assets for our internal development team. You will be part of the team responsible for building our worlds and bringing them to life.
