HIRING: Quality Assurance Intern

Who We Are: Tiny Titan Studios is an indie studio based in London, Ontario, Canada (that's right, not that London). We're the creators of mobile games like Dash Quest and Tap Smiths, both available on iOS/Android and actively supported by passionate players. We strive to bridge the gap between classic retro gaming and modern phone and tablet experiences in each of our projects.

Our newest title, Tiny Rails, was featured as one of Apple's Best New Games at launch and hit 1 million downloads within its first week of availability. Our last four titles have been featured by Apple and we take the quality of our games very seriously.
