Who are we?

We’re Pixaera, a gaming start-up with a mission: to power experiential learning by building immersive technology that transforms worldwide access to learning. Think Roblox for professional learning and collaboration. Today, our products save lives by making people safer at work, both physically and psychologically, but we’re not satisfied- we’re going to change the way people learn in all industries and environments.

We’re backed by leading venture capital firm LocalGlobe (the backers of Wise, Monzo, and Improbable) and gaming veterans (like the founders of Faceit) to help us change the way the world learns- forever.

How do we support and benefit our employees?

  • Work from anywhere: Fully remote set-up, with 2x company-wide meetups per year to meet and bond with your colleagues

  • Flexible working hours: as long as you deliver, we don’t mind when you work. Delivery is more important than face-time

  • £2k hardware stipend, so you can kit yourself out with all the equipment you need to succeed

  • 25 days company vacation allowance per year in addition to local public holidays. If there is a public holiday that you would rather work, let us know and you can swap it for another day in lieu

  • Competitive stock options
