Life at FuturLab

Here at FuturLab we believe that happy, healthy teams produce the best video games!

Our bright and airy studio is based in the centre of Hove one block from the beach!

There’s an abundance of independent coffee shops, cafes and restaurants nearby. We also have banks, hairdressers, post office and other essentials on the doorstep – very handy when you need to run errands at lunch!

We don’t do crunch (it doesn’t work), everyone works 9 to 5, with an hour’s break away from their desk for lunch. We have a large breakout room with board games, video games, movies and Netflix. For sunny days, enjoy your lunch on the beach (we’re only a block away)!

As we spend a large proportion of our day sat at a desk, it’s imperative that everyone is sitting comfortably and properly. All new staff have a work station assessment when they join, carried out by a local independent specialist. We always work with their recommendations to ensure that your seat, desk, monitors are all exactly as they should be.

There are also a variety of exercise balls and foam rollers dotted around the studio to have a break and stretch out on.

We have a regularly stocked fruit bowl in the kitchen for everyone to help themselves to. There’s also a wide variety of teas, and freshly ground Small Batch coffee.

We’re an inclusive studio that believes in fairness and fun! We provide a nurturing and healthy workplace and in return we ask for a positive and constructive attitude from our staff. We take the whole team to any expos where we are showcasing a game. It’s good for the team to hear the feedback on the game directly from players, as well as a fun weekend away together.

There are also regular staff days out, from pottery painting to laser quest to trips to LEGO Land, even running around the Crystal Maze!

Working at FuturLab, you can enjoy 28 days holiday a year, as well as 2 “duvet days” for the days that you really just don’t want to get out of bed – because we all have them!
