We're looking for a UX Designer to join the growing team at Heroic Labs. We build game tech for the video games industry and we have three main products. An open-source, distributed, highly scalable game server called Nakama. A Live Operations server called Satori and a Game Development Kit called Hiro.
We are simplifying the lives of game developers and providing incredible technology that can be integrated into any game on any platform as easily as possible. Nakama is already powering many games, including multiple titles on the Top 50 of the app stores. There is an ever-growing open-source community with many contributors, and third-party plugins and projects. Satori has been in early access with multiple studios since June 2022 and will be in general availability early 2023. Hiro is in development with partner game developers. Heroic Labs works with independent developers, mid-tier, AAA game studios and many publicly listed Fortune 500 companies across the globe to power games that individually make over 90 billion requests per month into our infrastructure.
We lean towards candidates who have professional experience designing sophisticated realtime dashboards embedded in products and custom UI frameworks - however if you don't have experience but feel up to the challenge, please do apply!
We are looking for a user-experience (UX) designer to initially work with our product Satori, which is a Live Ops server for the video games industry. We have been developing the product for a few years and it has now achieved technical excellence and is fully formed from a functional perspective. The user interface works well for our technical customers but as we go into the mass market we need to transition the product UX to be fit for purpose for product managers as well as the C suite.
The UX designer will need to understand the product and be responsible for conceiving and conducting user research with our existing customers, translating their issues into solutions, user flows, customer journey maps, wireframes, mock-ups and prototypes. The UX designer will be expected to re-design the overall UX of the product and iterate through user-testing.
You love building new things. You tinker with new technologies. You love helping developers be more productive. You love automation. You love helping customers solve problems.
For the past seven years, Heroic Labs has been on the forefront of providing cutting edge technology to the games and entertainment market. We do this because we love developers and we love games! We always choose the right tool for the job. We believe that with the right tools, you can have a big impact with less hassle. We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.

If you want to work remote, that's great. If you want to work near others, that's cool too. We have an office in London (UK), but our team members are in Vancouver, New York, Portugal, Edinburgh, and Brazil.
After you apply through the YC process, you are going to hear back from us, even if we don't seem like a good fit. In fact, throughout the process, we strive to make sure you never go more than seven days without hearing from us.
Heroic Labs is an enterprise open-core software company that builds developer tools for the games and entertainment industry. We build an open-source cloud-agnostic game server called Nakama.
Heroic Labs also provides managed infrastructure to run Nakama on behalf of game studios and media companies. There is also a proprietary version called Nakama Enterprise for large enterprises to deploy in their own datacenter, as well as custom infrastructure for private cloud deployments.
We work with different size companies ranging from small startups, mid-size game studios, public-listed games companies, and Fortune 500 companies. This means that Nakama (and suite of products) have been battle-tested at various scales and use cases.
