    • Create powerful VFX assets in a stylized, cel-shaded graphics pipeline
    • Help set guidelines and best practices for other artists in the future

    • Thrive without management


    • Work + life balance
    • We are proud to offer an atypical 4-day, 32-hour work week – while offering industry-competitive salaries. We don’t expect you to work weekends or holidays, and we never will.
    • Hopoo Games is an inclusive and supportive company, and we expect all of our employees to treat one another with kindness.

    Job Stability

    After the success of Risk of Rain 2, we have plenty of financial trail, which allows us to support our employees for a long time – and gives us creative control over the games we make.

    Hopoo Games employees in the United States also receive:

    • 4 weeks of paid time off (PTO), accrued over the calendar year, pro-rated for new hires based on date of hire
    • 10 paid holidays observed by Hopoo Games each year
    • Benefits including health, dental, vision, short and long term disability, 401K, etc.

    Work abroad

    All Hopoo Games employees are working remotely and we intend to remain remote at all times. We only ask that you be available during normal business hours, 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. PST. To support your remote work, we provide all necessary home equipment, including desk, PC, webcam, etc.

    Additionally, we ask applicants to also attach two pieces of work that they feel are most representative of their personal style. We are looking for work with strong lines, a language of forms, proportions, etc. Make sure you do this, otherwise your app won’t be seen!

    About the Company

    Hopoo Games was founded in 2012 with a creative vision: to create games we love to play!

    Since then, we’ve created several award-winning and genre-defining games – and we intend to continue to do so. We pride ourselves on our innovative and nimble designs, and are always on the lookout for exciting game ideas to bring to life.

    We are actively looking to recruit more talent to bring our visions to life. If you are interested, head over to our Jobs page!
