Morning boss, welcome to the office!

In Periorbis, you will be able to hire up to 7 employees to do your bidding and build your mining empire. Although all employees will be able to carry out all actions in the game, you will receive a bonus if they are employed to carry out their specialist actions.

The Engineer

Engineers build mining bases using remote builder drones, expand your HQ office, and deploy new technologies developed by your scientists more efficiently than other employees. As more capable engineers become available you will find they become even more efficient, saving you considerable amounts of money as you complete vital upgrades to your fleet and offices.

As the game progresses you will be able to hire more employees with better and better skills, but they will demand higher wages so make sure you hire the right specialists for the jobs you have planned.
