Who We Are:
At Roll7, we create exciting and critically acclaimed video games - including the BAFTA-winning OlliOlli franchise. Innovation, freedom, and a real sense of fun are at the heart of everything we do, from creating award-winning original IPs to the everyday business of running our unique distributed workplace set-up.
Roll7 is a small and close-knit team. You are not just a cog in a giant system; your work and opinions fundamentally shape the games that we make. The health and wellbeing of the whole team is key to our success, and for that reason, we don’t do crunch - it just doesn’t work. Instead, we focus on realistic timeframes and clear communication within the team, allowing us to create great games we’re all proud of while maintaining a happy and healthy work-life balance. We believe that the best work is done when everyone is motivated by their own desire to make the best game they possibly can, and having fun doing it.
