Senior Game Developer
Who are we?
We’re Pixaera, a gaming start-up with a mission: to empower people through play, by building immersive technology that transforms world-wide 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.
