HR Generalist

Lionheart Games

Be an Entrepreneur

Lionheart Games is in its early stages; you will contribute and learn first-hand how an idea turns into a sustainable and successful business over time.

Learn from Veterans

Working directly with the CEO, you will have access to everyone at our studio. Learn from them, and improve your own problem solving skills.

Foster our Culture

Building a game studio is both fun and challenging! You will grow and evolve our culture, with a focus on knocking down traditional barriers to creativity.

We are searching for an HR Generalist (recruiting experience with tech companies or startups preferred) who is ready to build a new business with our team. You are adaptable, compassionate, and keep calm under pressure. You have the organization and skills to solve new problems without guidance, and translate solutions into positive results across all business areas, including HR, recruiting, office services, operations, and wherever else there is need. This is an HR and business role that can lead to future growth opportunities in either direction (based on preference and performance). Your goal is to learn how a game development studio operates hands-on, and apply those lessons each day no matter whether the task is menial, complex, or collaborative.

People successful in this role are intellectually curious and comfortable filling many different roles on a team with minimal oversight. You thrive in an entrepreneurial and independent environment, and you’re not afraid to take calculated risks and trust in others. For this role, you need to love anime and mobile games, consuming lots of both. You should also have a strong passion for business, understand the fundamentals of starting a new company, and possess a strong willingness to learn more on your own and from others through careful observation.

  • Ambitious and entrepreneurial; you will do whatever it takes to solve a problem and move us forward

  • Self-aware and self-improving; you are honest about your performance and hold yourself accountable

Preferred

Frequently Asked Questions

For Careers at Lionheart Games

With COVID-19, are you accepting applications for remote employment?

While everyone is encouraged to work remote during the pandemic, all positions require relocation to Atlanta, Georgia within 30 days of acceptance. Once you move here, you may continue to work from home or come into the studio — the decision will be up to you until we feel it’s safe to return.

I'm worried about joining a start-up. How can I know if it's right for me? What if you run out of funding?

Lionheart Games is well-capitalized, and our CEO maintains a strong relationship with our investor. But, of course, there are no guarantees our studio will continue forever — which is true for most businesses (even very successful, large studios have layoffs). You shouldn’t worry about funding, but instead focus on what it means to be an entrepreneur with us.

Game development is challenging, and you will work a lot. If that doesn’t bother you and you’re passionate about making games with people who love them, watching anime in theaters, discussing anime in great detail, collecting waifus/husbandos in gacha games, and giving your very best even if that means less time for other things, then we might be a fit for you. If you aren’t bothered by ambiguity, are self-improving, love to learn on your own, and want to be the best professional you can be, then we might be a fit for you. These are questions to focus on, and to be honest with yourself about. Our studio is not for everyone, but for the people here it’s pretty great.

 

I don't see any open positions for internships or co-ops, do you accept applications for those?

Yes — but on a per project and as needed basis. If you are local to Georgia, we do our best to post these opportunities on your school’s job board. However, feel free to contact us directly with your credentials and cover letter even if you don’t see a posting. We don’t accept interns or co-ops from outside Georgia.

Do you offer relocation assistance?

Yes, we provide reimbursement for qualified relocation expenses up to a specified cap in your offer letter.

I heard Lionheart Games is "flat," what does that mean?

That’s correct; we don’t use formal job titles (except for certain outward facing roles) and there are no managers. When you are surrounded by people with substantial knowledge, skills, and experience in their disciplines, it’s better to trust them and move out of the way than to manage them. Of course, this leads to greater responsibility and risk in the hands of individuals, but we enjoy this model and feel it works well to remove traditional barriers that sometimes stifle creativity and greatness.

How long will it take for me to hear from you?

Due to volume, we do not respond to all applications. If you are selected for an interview, you will typically hear back from us within 1-2 weeks. However, on some occasions, we may keep your application on file and reach out much later than that when there is an open position that matches your qualifications.

If you apply and do not hear from us, don’t be discouraged and feel free to re-apply in 6-12 months when you have built up more experience in the relevant field.
