The World Of Beans

Beans is an eclectic and diverse team, honouring openness and free expression across our team and in the games we’ll imagine.

Our founders have worked with some of the best AAA game developers in the world, bringing experience and passion to Beans’s growth, but have left the bureaucracy at the door. Our office is located in the west end of Toronto and we offer competitive salaries, flexible hours, health benefits, unlimited PTO, a relaxed atmosphere and spectacular cookies.


Your Impact as our Associate Producer

The Associate Producer at Beans will be instrumental in supporting the team. You’ll work closely with our Producer, as their right-hand-human.

  • Efficient in problem solving, organization, and task management
  • Ability to give timely feedback and reliable follow-up
