Culture. Opportunity. Compensation.
The thing about Hippos is, they kind of do what they want. When you’re part of the Hyper Hippo team, this is your studio. If you have an idea, we all want to hear it. If you want to learn, grow and keep leveling up, there are a whole lot of Hippos who will happily have your back. We help each other on our journey, because it’s our journey, too.
Life at Hyper Hippo
That’s right, you don’t need to live in Kelowna, BC to be an essential part of one team that feels as close as the next workstation. These days we may be more connected in the digital space than the physical realm, but our culture is built on a set of core values that unite us as one team, wherever the magic happens.
Our Team Experiences Coordinator organizes remote team-building activities, mystery parties, employee spotlights, special guest speakers and more to give us plenty of opportunities to get to know each other and keep our growing family feeling welcome and connected.
As much as we love the team, we also value the individual, and strive to give everyone the power to focus fully on making great games, however that works best for them. Being independent means that each of us plays an important role in the future of our company. This includes the freedom to make decisions, experiment with ideas and try new things. It’s how we got where we are today!
We don't shy away from challenges or opportunities that others say are impossible. We are a courageous and empowered team making decisions and taking action.
We bring our best, and we support our teammates in doing their best. We invest in our people to grow in their superpower, making our entire team stronger.
We encourage diverse thinking and listening with an open mind. We focus on a shared purpose and will pursue our vision through respectful discourse and constructive feedback.
We think on the horizon. We focus on the long term in all areas of our business to build a positive future for our studio and our audience.
We build world-class experiences that turn every player into fans. Our decisions are guided by what is best for our players.
We love to find solutions to problems and unleash our collective creative genius. Through a commitment to experimentation and curiosity, we will never rest in our pursuit of finding a better way.
