Position Overview:

Look North World (LNW) is on the lookout for a seasoned and collaborative individual with a knack for assembling production teams in startup environments.

Our unique approach involves developing new gameplay and intellectual property (IP) within Creator marketplaces, with our initial focus on UEFN. Our company is the product of a team of seasoned game developers with a wealth of experience and a proven track record of success.

This role is anticipated to be a remote work position open to most countries in North and South America, with some work happening on-site during biannual team meet ups.
