We are looking for an experienced UI/UX programmer to help us develop Dreams, our next generation UGC title. 

Dreams builds upon the Play, Create, Share experience that we established with LittleBigPlanet, where social features are a key element to the UI/UX. Interest in this area is a requirement; experience is a plus.

You will be prototyping and programming UI features of course, but also participating in the design process.

We need someone who can take direction and run with it, but also has the talent to contribute ideas and make a positive difference to the game.

You will be self-motivated and hands-on, with the confidence to work in a collaborative and fast-iterating environment.


  • 3+ years games industry experience
  • Shipped at least one title, preferably on console, where UI/UX was your primary role
  • Expert C/C++ skills


  • 5+ years in UI/UX development
  • Multiple titles shipped
  • Experience with social features
