10. Our clients are exceptional. 

We work with world-class organizations, such as PBS, Scholastic, iCivics, Smithsonian, Meta, Roblox, and FIRST®, to name just a few. With over 200 projects and 17 years of experience behind us, we’re proud of our extensive portfolio, which contains games for all ages, on a variety of subjects and platforms

9. We embrace cutting-edge technologies.

In addition to PC, mobile, and web browser-based games, we also create projects in augmented and virtual reality. Our willingness to adopt educational AR and VR content early on has paid off. In 2019, our game “Breaking Boundaries in Science” received a Webby Award. Our upcoming sandbox robotics game, RoboCo, will be available on PC and VR. We have a finger on the pulse of educational technology trends, and we’re not afraid to work with nascent technologies to produce timely and state-of-the-art educational experiences. 

8. We’re working to make robotics accessible for all.

In November 2021, we worked together with FIRST Global to put on the inaugural FIRST Global RoboCo Challenge. In this first-of-its-kind virtual robotics competition, teams from 37 different countries participated, building robots to conquer challenges and become the ultimate RoboCo champion. At Filament, we believe in digital robotics and its ability to increase access to meaningful STEM learning. Stay tuned for more to come! 👀 

7. We’re a leader in our region’s game development scene.

If you didn’t know already, Filament is located in Madison, Wisconsin – which also happens to be a hub of AR/VR, mobile, AAA, and indie game studios. We’ve carved out our own spot as educational game developers and built our reputation as a national leader in the educational games development scene. 

6. Madison, Wisconsin is a neat place. 

If you’ve never been, the state capital of Wisconsin is home to many beautiful parks and lakes as well as all sorts of art, food, and music. Whether you like to adventure outdoors or spend time indoors in restaurants or museums, Madison has something for everyone! 

5. Our staff can work fully remotely, as well as enjoy flexible work hours and unlimited PTO.

In the case that you’re not already local and you don’t want to move, no worries! We’ve fully embraced remote work and we’re not looking back. Our fully remote workers can apply for office equipment and computer hardware stipends, and all of our full-time employees also have flexible work hours and unlimited paid time off. As long as you meet deadlines and produce high-quality work, you can work 9-5, into the night, or start in the wee hours of the morning. Whatever works best for you!

4. We trust our staff to do great things. 

We’re a group of eclectic professionals with a passion for learning, and it’s evident from interviews with our department managers: we want to hire people who will take initiative to solve problems. We don’t believe in micromanagement. Of course, management is always happy to help when unexpected issues arise – but ultimately, you own your work here at Filament. We value a work environment with a balance of collaboration and independence so you can get done what needs to be done!

3. We have fun on the job. 

Even though most of us work remotely, we still find ways to connect! We have weekly virtual lunches, coffee/tea breaks, and co-op gaming sessions. Our mascot, the Filabee, has also been known to pop into our virtual workspace for contests, giveaways, and other fun team-building activities. We work hard, and we also play hard. 

2. We offer profit-share.

That’s right! Here at Filament, all employees enjoy the benefits of a profit share program designed to let everyone see a measurable financial impact as a reward for their hard work. 

1. We create playful experiences that improve people’s lives.

From the very beginning, we’ve been on a mission to create games that are not only fun but have lasting, real-world impact. We create games with measurable positive outcomes, and that’s a standard we hold ourselves to with every single project we take on.
