Working on the biggest games in Australia
PlaySide is the largest independent games studio in Australia. Founded in 2011, we’re a team with big ideas and the skills to deliver with our incredible team.

We offer an amazingly professional, playful and supportive working environment. If you thrive on challenges and want to work on a diverse range of projects for a forward-thinking company, we want to hear from you.
Regular after-work activities, lunches, parties, social club events and studio celebrations make for an engaging social culture with plenty of variety to suit all types of people.
We are so passionate about career longevity at Playside. We support all staff at every level to get to the following stages of their career through quarterly 1:1 goal sessions and on the job training.
Snacks & Drinks
Fresh fruit, healthy (and not so healthy) snacks, Friday platters and drinks, as well as a coffee machine.
Get colourful with our matching Mondays where we cycle out a different colour every week to dress in! (optional of course!!)
Every Voice Matters
Be heard. Everyone has a voice on all our projects and contribute unique ideas to make each game the best it can be.
Playsider's can even pitch their game ideas to take into full development.
With regular after-work gaming sessions, we like to spruce it up with some competitive play. With games ranging from classics to new releases, jump in the fun and compete for glory!
We think we have the best space in Aus. Our vibrant brand new studio in Port Melbourne has a games room, chill-out areas and colourful themed meeting rooms and spaces.
Located in charming Port Melbourne, we are only a short walk away from beaches, beautiful cafes and restaurants and the famous South Melbourne Market
