Certain demographics are known for not applying for roles they do not 100% nail in the spec.

If you believe you have the ingredients to lead and execute, and what you’d need in the first 3 months to be way better than the next he/she/them, pitch it. Just remember this is a leadership role.

We typically get a lot of applications. This is a comms job. If you grab our attention, it will matter

Why join the CULT?

We are a new team with big ambitions. As a startup, we do not pay the highest salaries in the industry, but we do give big freedom and influence. We are looking for a high-impact, high-energy person to join us in building the vision from the ground.

A former SuperIndie group all with proven success and hype-driven hits behind us, our developer roster is fast filling with some of the best independent game studios in the iii space.

A SuperIndie label for SuperIndie devs, our goal is to be the best truly independent games publishing group in the industry.

We’re looking for talented, hungry, ambitious executors who love to be around one another. Our devs go hard and we show up for them. It matters we all enjoy the ride.

Gender/Race/Orientation is irrelevant.
We are looking for people who are proven in and passionate about games and their craft. World class people we’re excited to have in our house.

 

If this sounds like you,

Come build a CULT with us.
