The “Perks” of being at Dark Horse

Look, we won't lie, we don't do pizza Fridays. What we do actually offer are things that matter a bit more, the things that make the hype of work-life balance more doable. 

You've got a hybrid role – meaning we spend part of the week in the office and part of it at home, the joys of working within the comforts of your own four walls. Flexitime is a thing. There are loads of holidays to enjoy, PLUS Bank Holidays (people screw you over by not making that clear). We love our little planet, so every month we plant trees in The Dark Forest on behalf of every team member.
