COMMON TO ALL POSITIONS
We’re looking for candidates with a high degree of self-motivation and initiative, and a positive attitude, preferably with prior industry experience, along with a relevant university degree and an exceptional portfolio.
You’ll be joining an up-and-coming indie studio working out of a cosy office in downtown Oslo, Norway. We occupy half the floor of a beautiful 130 year old building, with a café and gourmet restaurant downstairs, a bar in the backyard, many grocery stores, lunch bars and coffee houses just minutes away. We’re also within a ten-minute walk from much of what central Oslo has to offer, including all public transportation, malls, museums, parks, restaurants and nightlife — and the forests and fjord are only 20-30 minutes away using public transportation.
We’re looking for people who can fit in with our passionate, experienced and friendly team of artists, designers and developers.
