The studio currently has a number of open positions across a variety of disciplines. The jobs page says Humanoid has a “flat organizational structure” and that interested candidates can look forward to working on “small, agile teams … where everyone is empowered to make decisions and help drive the project vision.”
Humanoid is based in British Columbia and Alberta. The company offers a “flexible locational model” that allows employees to work remotely or from the office, or a hybrid.
Hudson worked at BioWare from 1998-2004 before leaving the company to join Microsoft on the Xbox team where he held positions at Xbox Studios and with the mixed reality team. Hudson directed the first three Mass Effect games. He rejoined BioWare in 2017 as VP and studio general manager before leaving again in December 2020.
