About Vortex Games
Vortex Games is a fully remote team comprised of people who care about our people, our wellness, and cultivating our sparks above all else. You can learn a bit more about who we are in “The Guide.” Vortex Games is likely the only video game studio - and perhaps one of the only companies in the world - to have a dedicated, full-time “Wellness Team.” Our Wellness Team can be thought of as in-house therapists to help our team navigate any workplace-related challenges as well as celebrate your accomplishments. It’s like what Human Resources is supposed to be!
We look forward to your application and the opportunity to get to know you.
