Let's talk some truth: Making games is hard. It's a collision of art and technology that’s about as predictable as a tornado.

There's no secret formula, no foolproof blueprint—but it certainly helps to have a reason for making games in the first place. "Every Player's Story is Unique." At Hangar 13, that's why we make games. We’re currently creating an intense action game set in an immersive world and with a strong narrative, but player agency is at the heart of everything we do.

We want to give players the freedom to choose how to overcome challenges and make meaningful decisions that shape the world and characters around them.


Hangar 13 is looking for a seasoned graphics programmer who enjoys a collaborative and creative work environment and is looking to push the boundaries of cutting edge 3D graphics.  Research, develop, implement, and debug high-end and photorealistic graphics techniques applicable to characters and large-scale environments.
