We are based in the world-leading technology cluster and historic city of Cambridge. Our modern studio is on the Cambridge Science Park, which is home to around 130 companies employing 7000 people, and ranging from inspiring tech start-ups to global leaders in their field.
Our spacious and open plan office is designed to allow everyone to work at their best. With sit stand desks, plenty of meeting rooms and informal break out areas and the “Space Bar”, our excellent staff restaurant.
Every Thursday at the Science Park we have food trucks visit with a wide array of foods from across the globe. The Science Park is easily accessible by car with great links to the A14 and M11. It is also closely situated to public transport links including Cambridge North Station and the Guided Bus. Whilst many of our people live in and around Cambridge, others reside in the rural areas of Cambridgeshire, often within easy walking or cycling distance of the studio.
For those who wish to relocate to the Cambridge area and work either entirely in the studio or flexibly between the studio and home, we can provide generous financial and practical support to facilitate your move. We are also able to offer remote working for those who would prefer to work almost exclusively from home or who are unable to relocate. We can discuss your preferences with you during the recruitment process.
Here at Frontier we provide a comprehensive range of benefits. We're continuously levelling up our benefits to make sure we provide all our people with modern and innovative support. Click on the below to find out more:
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
A Health Cash plan allows you to claim back some or all of the costs of routine health expenses such as dental, optical, chiropody or physiotherapy. It is also possible to claim back the excess under the private medical scheme. The company will pay for a level of cover which you can increase and also add your spouse or partner, and children can be included free of charge. This plan also entitles you to access discounts and deals on various shops and services.
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.
Sharesave is a handy way to save directly from your net salary each month, providing you with the opportunity to buy shares in Frontier Developments plc at a discounted rate. The scheme has a 3 year vesting period, with no obligation to buy shares at the end of the savings contract; you can simply take back your savings if you prefer. Frontier invites all our people to join a scheme twice a year.
All Frontier staff benefit from our generous company bonus scheme which includes the potential for significant multipliers based on over-achievement against company profit and individual personal performance targets.
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%
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.
We arrange regular social events which range from Studio Socials, Summer and Winter Parties, to our Fresh Faces events for new starters to get to know about Frontier. We’re also expanding our virtual events, hosting Quiz Nights and Online Socials for all to join in.
