My name is Ola and it is my pleasure to build the HR strategy at PixelAnt Games – a video games company that is a part of Sumo Digital based in the UK.

I'm looking for a Senior/Regular HR & Payroll Specialist to join my team and I would like to briefly describe who we are and how we work :)

Let's start with things you can expect:

• Keeping on growing yourself and your skills is one of our values. That's why, beyond the day-to-day tasks arising from our responsibilities as an employer and the strict deadlines we adhere to, you will have the opportunity to engage in project work - proposing internal policies, procedures, improvements, etc.

  • Monitoring the validity of medical examinations and Occupational Health and safety training.

  • You have a bachelor’s or master's degree, preferably in HRM, Labour Law, accounting or related.
  • You have gone through the growth process of your organization and you know what challenges are associated with the development and scaling of the organization.
  • HR & Payroll is your thing; you are passionate about it, and you are highly proficient in interpreting new rules and regulations as well as implementing new processes.
  • You are ready to perform tasks from the entire spectrum - from operational tasks to strategic ones related to the delivery of the entire policy/regulation.
  • You have a successful track record of implementing policies and regulations in previous companies.
  • You have a solid understanding of essential HR and payroll principles, as well as best practices related to HR and payroll management.

Can you spare us another 30 seconds?

Great, let's talk about ourselves quickly. We're ambitious game enthusiasts who are well prepared to both have fun and work hard. We aim high, but we do not lose ourselves in the pursuit of success and further achievements. We love to learn! And over the years in the industry, we have learned that the best games are created by qualified, rested, treated with respect game developers.
Importantly, our work culture has been built on the basis of specific, true (and respected by us) values. The most important of these is "We never lie", so you can be sure that we have not overdone this announcement. We play by our own rules and we make games that we would like to play ourselves. We combine the game development world with best software delivery practices to make it more predictable and reliable. All this helps us to bring fun back to game development! Will you help us?

Where do we stand on diversity?

We hope to bring together a diverse team of people with various backgrounds and experiences, who will bring broader ideas, new perspectives, and different solutions to our table. Whoever you are, feel welcome and encouraged to apply.
