Culture & Values:
Values aren’t just words on the wall for us. They shape our hiring, our ways of working and the goals we choose to pursue. If these resonate with you, you’re looking for a spot on the right team.
• Wildness with polish: We know that creative processes will always have a little wildness about them. We want to preserve that free spirit, and balance it with a focus on the highest standards in everything we ship.
• Every voice matters: Diversity strengthens the dialogue we have with one another. Being thoughtful about representation and inclusivity in our games is the most effective way to reach the biggest audience.
• Work sustainably: We find ways to accomplish our goals while being mindful of our lives outside of work. We believe the best route to success is by taking care of ourselves and each other.
• Bias for action: Speed matters in business. Many decisions and actions are reversible and do not need extensive study. We value calculated risk taking, and we ship on time.
• Just enough to make it magical: Our games relish the tangible qualities of beautiful things. We use technology and materials with flair and frugality, putting it in the service of great experiences.
We are actively recruiting for a diverse team and developing a culture of growth. We look forward to hearing how you can help us to be better.
• Leadership: you develop the right goals collaboratively, building consensus among stakeholders and making the path to reach those goals feel achievable and exciting

• Communication: you are an action-oriented, emotionally intelligent communicator. Your written and verbal communication is clear and enables rapid decision-making
• Commercial nous: you combine a deep understanding of our digital-physical market and the realities of shipping games with a commercial mindset. This enables you to make smart decisions about where time and money is best invested
• Determination and analytical thinking: you are unflappable in the face of challenges, instilling confidence in your team in the process. You take total ownership for overcoming blockers and address their root cause, not just their impact
