You’ll also work with development to find new techniques and methods to improve game performance and quality. This is a hands-on role (you’re not just here to tell other people what to do!) so we’ll expect you to create at least three complete game art packages in your first 12 months.

About the Company

VGW started in 2010 in Perth, Australia with the vision of creating a virtual world with focus on gaming and entertainment. After a few early iterations and continuous development, Chumba Casino was launched in 2012. Our Founder (Laurence Escalante) and a small team of innovative developers succeeded in incorporating our patented (pending) sweepstakes functionality into our casino gaming platform. 

Since then, Chumba Casino has grown into a leading social gaming provider offering players a broad range of fun and engaging games. What started as a slots-only offering has grown to include a number of table games including black-jack and roulette. 

In late 2016 we launched Global Poker – an online poker room based on VGW’s proprietary and patented (pending) sweepstake technology and are proud to claim is now the largest poker room in the United States. VGW is a diverse company which believes in a work hard / play hard ethos. We now have over 500 of the world's best developers, designers, analysts and marketing professionals, with offices in Perth, Malta, Sydney, Manila, Toronto, and San Francisco.
