Life at Improbable

Where technology meets games

At Improbable, we’re bringing together technology and games to create new opportunities and experiences. In order to achieve this, we need unique perspectives from diverse people, empowered to revolutionise how online games are made, delivered and paid for.

We believe one of the biggest, most impactful changes to the way we live our lives is going to come from the medium of games. Realising new communities, societies and vocations through virtual worlds is what drives our people and gives them purpose.

Our values

We're deeply proud of our values, which are intrinsic to the way we behave every day. We take them seriously because we want our culture to thrive.

Relentless humility

We don't rely on personal status, reward, elevation and success, especially where we have the authority to make decisions. We always assume good intent, give the benefit of the doubt and always do what's most important for the cause. We are prepared to give up our role for someone we believe is better than us - we become irreplaceable by replacing ourselves. We're active listeners, vocal about mistakes, stay grounded and believe that we can fail.

Aim for the impossible

We must aim for the impossible in order to find out what is possible. We do not artificially restrict ourselves and do what others are afraid to do; without asking if we can do it, but how we will do it. We are driven to achieve extraordinary things and expect to get there.

Improvement over comfort

We are never satisfied with ourselves and convinced it's okay not to know, but it's not okay not to learn. We're proactive and pragmatic but balance that with resilience and having the courage to dig deeply through problems. We solicit feedback, are curious and constantly seek to learn and understand perspectives. We're building and contributing to a culture of "what's it going to take".

Action over fear

We learn by doing and delivering real-world results. We avoid unnecessary debate and balance building consensus and driving decisions with trying new things and focussing on delivery. We are not paralysed by the fear of making or reversing decisions.

Perks and benefits

Unlimited vacation

Only you know how much time you need to rejuvenate. We trust you to get your job done and take leave appropriately.

Full private healthcare

All employees have access to comprehensive BUPA cover, with your medical history disregarded and zero excess. This can be extended to spouses and dependents.

Maternity and paternity

We pride ourselves on our parental leave. Primary caregivers get 26 weeks and secondary caregivers get four.


We provide breakfast and lunch every day and have dedicated areas for self-care. In-office, discounted gym membership is also available.

Dog friendly

Our canine friends bring life to the office - so trained dogs that consistently pass our behaviour tests are always welcome.

Pension and life cover

We operate a tax-efficient group pension scheme. Alongside your pension, we also provide life insurance.
