Launch your career with us

It’s not rocket science.

Match your skills with the needs of the game industry

We are offering a trainee program for enthusiastic new game developers to fast-track them into the game industry. We have personally gone through the process from school bench to the game industry and we know that it isn’t very easy. Often the people don’t even know what they should know to get into the industry. You can learn it through a hard way like we did, or you can apply to our trainee-program and save some months or even years in your life.

The main goal is to get you inside the game industry. We do that by involving our clients and other game companies to design the trainee program. We ask about their procedures, tools, culture and needs to tailor our program to fit the industry as well as possible. During the program, we are actively working towards your long-term employment. The minimum payoff is to get one more published game to your portfolio and a bunch of valuable contacts.

You need solid base before you can start building on it

Our trainee program is aimed for people who are studying their final years in universities or universities of applied sciences. But that doesn’t exclude other applicants. You need to have some solid basic game programming skills to learn the new stuff efficiently, but your motivation and potential matters the most. We also check that you meet our company values and that you are capable to take responsibility.

All of our developers (and trainees) are required to have:

– Passion towards games

– Good written and verbal communication skills in English

– Willingness to work in a team

– Urge to personal development
