We are on the hunt for a Graphic Designer who loves mobile games and is passionate about creatively connecting with our audiences. Do you provide a unique perspective and thrive in an environment where creative freedom is paired with rigorous concept testing?

What We’re Building at Hyper Hippo:
Entrepreneurial-spirited, Hyper Hippo is an organization that focuses on adapting to change, creating experiences that people love, and nurturing innovation. We know that great ideas don’t come from leadership alone, but from the creative and curious minds of everyone in the Studio. Our first success was the genre-defining hit, the original idle game AdVenture Capitalist (+50 Million installs) and our second project, AdVenture Communist, is currently one of the most popular mobile Idle Games in the world. We know it wasn’t luck that fueled our success, but being humble, agile, and innovative at every step.

If you excel in an environment where your voice is heard and your vision is always considered, where you can be apart of a talented creative team and shape the future of our studio – we can’t wait to hear from you.
