CAREERS

We are always on the look-out for creative minds with a good work ethic and a collaborative spirit. Ride FX is based on the south coast of Brittany, WFH is always an option but if you like the sea and quality of living is important to you, you are more than welcome to join us here. We firmly believe intensive work and screen time should be balanced with wide ocean views and a walk in a forest from time to time.
