Our commitment to Diversity
At YAGER we believe that the best gameplay stories are those shaped by other players. We know together is better and we celebrate the uniqueness and strength found in diversity. We know that an aligned and diverse team will outperform the sum of its parts. 

Market research shows that some people from less-represented groups in gaming only apply if they meet all the requirements. But we want to encourage everyone to apply, even if they don't think they meet every single requirement. We believe having different perspectives and backgrounds is what helps our teams do their best.
