You'll be joining a company of 12 full time staff, with 7 of those in Production. We're growing fast, but everyone here still gets their hands dirty!

This is a fully-remote, full-time position. You can be located anywhere, but must be able to overlap with UK time for at least 3 hours between 9am and 5pm UK time.

Our pay range is £34,000 - £42,000, dependent on experience.

We are especially keen to hear from you if you:

About Us

We make content for absolutely everyone

At Six to Start we believe in everyone's right to exist and be seen. We tell diverse stories in our app with caring, idealistic characters that our players love. Our workplace reflects this mission with our commitment to equality, inclusion and mutual support. Here's what some of our players say:

"I love this beautiful inclusive world you've created that you've allowed us to be a part of. Zombies, Run! has helped me through a lot of trying times and I don't know what I'd be doing without y'all."

"Zombies, Run is an exercise app, but its ALSO an incredible audio podcast where u are the main character. has lovable diverse cast of chars. and motivates you IRL to exercise at any pace you prefer! its literally the only thing thats ever made me exercise for fun and i love it."

We are not a startup

We think "hustle" is code for overwork. From the way we plan projects onward, we do everything we can to ensure people work 40 hours a week even in release-heavy months. We also support part-time working and extra flexibility for meeting needs and challenges like caring for others, crisis and personal health.

We build better processes

We believe in creating thoughtful, sustainable processes that make our work easier, rather than relying on volume of effort to get the job done. We're committed to constant self-scouting and continual improvement as a way of ensuring as stress-free and sustainable a work life as we're able to create.

What the job is going to be like

Primary Responsibilities

You will work closely with our Head of Production to ensure the smooth running of the Production department and the continual improvement of our processes. You will also take hands-on ownership of the QA and customer support teams within the Production department, co-ordinating the team's workload as well as working on day-to-day QA and support tasks alongside the rest of the team.

You will be responsible for:

  • Co-ordinating the work of the QA and Support team, including content and technical QA
  • Performing QA and answering customer support tickets
  • Liaising with the Development team to specify new improvements and features, in collaboration with studio leadership
  • Maintaining documentation across Jira boards, Notion databases and Google Docs
  • Troubleshooting processes to identify paths for continual improvement
  • Planning and documenting upcoming workloads across the team, in collaboration with the Head of Production

  • Take part in discussions about representation and equality in our content
  • Assist in asset handling and content upload for our content
  • Take part in quality-assurance processes for our content
