Salary: $60,000-$70,000 annually


We’re a small team with big ideas. Sky Castle Studios is a fully remote company, centered in Santa Monica, California. We’re a group of talented artists, developers, character riggers, 3D modelers, in-house customer service agents, gamers and nerds of all stripes. When we’re not brainstorming and creating new platforms, we take time to discuss and enjoy the latest developments in geek culture, explore new technologies, and celebrate our creative endeavors!

We’re looking for game changers–those self-starters who know how to take initiative. You can expect to have a decent amount of autonomy in your work and in your work day. We won’t be looking over your shoulder, unless you’re showing us the cool new thing you just designed.

Our bread and butter is but we’re often expanding to other products and websites as well.
