A great saga needs diverse heroes
Making games is fun.

Especially when you do it with people who share the same idea of what makes a good workplace, great. We craft games for everyone, no matter where they are or who they are, and we employ all kinds of people from all types of backgrounds to bring them to life. We believe we simply can't expect diversity in our players and new ideas in our games without first nurturing it in our people. A great saga needs all sort of heroes, wouldn't you agree? That's why we provide equal opportunities and hire all sorts of talent.

We're Seriously Playful
Officially, we are a leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world. Unofficially, we're a serious business that takes pride in having fun. Every single day at King, we mix intuition with logic, art with science and magic with mathematics to craft the games the world loves to play. Together with our parent company, Activision Blizzard, our mission is to bring moments of magic to everyday life. Do you think this is something you can help us achieve? Then we'd love to talk with you.
