Mission & purpose

We strive to create games that will put both Frontier and the games industry itself at the forefront of the world entertainment industry. Frontier has thrived over the subsequent three decades. We have built a uniquely diverse catalogue of games – enabled by our Cobra technology – that has defined genres, earned critical acclaim and won a place in the hearts of millions of players. Having worked with a succession of top publishers we now self-publish our own high quality, innovative games of different genres that embody our world-class expertise across all major gaming formats.

Benefits

Wellbeing

At Frontier we are committed to providing a stimulating working environment for our talented people to make great games. We also realise that family and work life balance are very important and as such we offer an employee assistance programme and a flexitime system to help accommodate people’s busy lives. We also invest in wellbeing activities including yoga and mindfulness.

Holidays

From your first day here at Frontier, you are entitled to 25 days paid holiday per annum, plus public holidays. Your holiday allowance will increase by 1 day for every 2 years of service, to a maximum of 31 days. On top of this, you also have the option to carry over 5 day’s holiday into the subsequent year or sell the 5 days.

Critical Illness Insurance

Critical Illness Insurance provides a lump sum benefit should you suffer one of a number of specified serious illnesses. You can select units of £25,000 worth of cover up to a maximum of the lower of 5 times salary or £250,000. Cover is also automatically provided for any natural or legally adopted children of a member whom is at least 30 days old but under the age of 18.

Cycle to Work

In Cambridge, cycling is one the main transport methods with dedicated cycle lanes all around the city. We offer free, regular bike servicing by a local bike company by appointment. You are also entitled to ‘The Cycle to Work Scheme’ which enables you to save tax and national insurance on bike hire and cycling safety equipment used primarily for commuting, with the option to purchase after 12 months, spreading the cost across a whole year. You can also use the bike for leisure purposes.

Life Assurance

From your first day, Frontier will pay a lump sum in the event of your death. An ‘Expression of Wish’ form will allow you to confirm how this sum should be distributed. You will automatically receive a core level of cover equal to three times your salary, with the option to increase this level to a maximum of 10 times your salary.

Flexible Working

The Frontier Flexitime system is intended to give people a greater freedom over their working hours whilst ensuring that we continue to achieve work objectives, which are based in very large part on effective team working. Our working week consists of 37.5 hours with core hours being 10am – 4pm, with Flexitime you have the option to work flexibly around those hours.

Frontier Pension Plan

You will be automatically enrolled with a contribution of 5% of your basic salary, which will be matched by Frontier at 5%. You may pay more into your pension scheme if you wish, with Frontier’s contribution capped at 5%

Private Medical Insurance

You will be able to join our private medical scheme, where you can also include a partner and dependent family members if you wish at no additional cost to yourself. Pre-existing conditions are covered. Frontier will pay the premiums for this cover, and it is a taxable benefit.
