Giant Army is looking for an individual or a small team to redesign and develop our website, universesandbox.com.

This is a contract position.

Requirements

  • Minimalistic design aesthetic that matches our software
  • Responsive design – needs to work well on desktop, tablet, and phone
  • Migrate our current content, including forum and blog
  • Help find and move to a new host
  • [Wishlist] Localization support

We are looking to completely redesign the Universe Sandbox website. We’d like to keep most of our content but move to a mobile-friendly design. Our website has three key components:

  • Periodically updated static content (Home, About, FAQ, Screenshots, etc.)
  • Blog (Wordpress)
  • Forum (Simple Machines Forum)

As long as data can be migrated, we are fine with moving away from Wordpress or SMF (and in fact would prefer not to keep SMF).

NOTE: We are not looking to “rebrand” and are 100% happy with our logo and color choice.

Company Overview

Giant Army is the company behind Universe Sandbox. Our headquarters are in Seattle, Washington, USA, with team members across the United States, Germany, and Denmark.

Team members enjoy a flexible, collaborative environment that values work-life balance. We pursue the features that get us excited about science, and we do the work so we can share it with others. We strive to create an accessible experience that can’t be found elsewhere.

We believe science and video games are for everyone, regardless of identity, and we’re committed to making an inclusive workplace. We encourage anyone who shares our passion for space to apply.

Product Overview

Universe Sandbox is a space simulator that merges real-time gravity, climate, collision, and physical interactions to reveal the beauty of our universe and the fragility of our planet. It’s more than a game; it’s a way of experiencing and learning about reality in a way that’s never been done before.

Universe Sandbox is available on Windows, Mac, Linux, and VR with mobile and future platforms planned. We’ve sold nearly half a million copies and have a “Very Positive" rating on Steam with 93% positive user reviews.
