Exciting career opportunities

We’re focused on quality - everything we do features unique attributes that make our games distinct from many others out there. All of our games require players to develop one or more skills because we believe there’s greater satisfaction playing anything with a skills component to it. 

What it’s like to work for us

The types of skills we look for varies substantially and our talented people work across a wide variety of disciplines. We have engineers, designers, artists, analysts, and people in finance, customer support, customer acquisition and marketing.

Gaming is the fastest-moving space in the entertainment industry right now and we’re looking for people who have a thirst and a passion for learning.

While the majority of the team is Scottish, about 20% are international recruits. We have people from Italy, Northern Europe, Portugal and Spain so we have a growing mix of nationalities. It makes an enjoyable and eclectic work environment.

At Outplay our work environment is relaxed but focused. There are a lot of clever people doing fun and interesting things. We like to encourage staff at every level to share their ideas.

Working in Scotland

Scotland is a wonderful country, not only in terms of the quality of life but also in terms of the number of games companies that are already here. It offers fantastic career opportunities for people to develop an exceptional career in games.
