Backend Engineer

Once upon a game...

Founded by a marvellous man in 2012 who thought Global from the outset, with the vision to create World leading mobile games which put players first.

Now 8 years on, 120 people strong and their games being played in 150 countries!

With a strong portfolio of original and highly acclaimed IPs under their belt, they made a World-class partnership last year with the Queen (and King) of mobile games, this turbocharged their studio and allowed them to innovate and take risks with a backer that trusts them and thinks long-term.

This gives them a wonderful big sister to lean on in terms of resources, talent and advice both with the ambition to make mobile games for a Global audience.

Now with 85% of their studio chasing the next big hit, they have a huge few years ahead.
