Current Open Positions

Open Application

Don't see an open position that fits your experience? We'd still like to hear from you!

If you love what we've begun with Astroneer's distinctive art style, physical gameplay mechanics, an open world of interplanetary discovery, and if you know how to make it all better in Unreal Engine, then join us to help build Astroneer to be the best version of itself it can be; a game that inspires and entertains all who play it.

To apply, please send the following to

  • A cover letter and/or resume demonstrating your professional team game development experience, leadership experience, and your ability to work within constraints.
  • A portfolio of projects/games/prototypes (of any size) that you crafted yourself which demonstrate your skills.
  • Please be clear in your materials what kind of position or area of work you would like to be considered for (e.g. design, art, engineering, UX, etc.)

What we look for:

  • You challenge the status quo with humility, and use this to craft excellent player experiences.
  • You desire ownership over large portions of a project, and enjoy both criticism and credit.
  • You find opportunities to reconcile business needs with creative vision.
  • You love small studio culture and a connection to the broader indie game community.
  • Astroneer is built in Unreal Engine, so prior experience with the engine or C++ is a plus.
