Description

The City of Angels is now the city of the undead.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to further your career by leading the art direction on a ground-breaking title for current and future platforms at a genuinely progressive and forward thinking studio.

Do you have proven experience in leading world class art teams to deliver AAA console focused titles? If so, then we have your next challenge waiting…

Who Should Apply?

No two Dambusters are created the same, and so we have a tight-knit crew from all backgrounds and walks of life working as a part of our in-house art department.

We value Inclusivity and Diversity within the workplace and so we recently took the pledge towards Raising the Game.
