A great saga needs all sorts of 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 design games for everyone, no matter where they are or who they are, and we employ all sorts of people from all kinds of backgrounds to bring them to life.
Truth is, we simply can't expect diversity in our players and originality in our games without first nurturing it in our people.

A great saga needs all sorts of heroes. And that's it.

We're Seriously Playful

Officially, we're a leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world. Unofficially, we're a serious business that's not afraid to have fun. Every day at King, we mix intuition with logic, art with science and magic with mathematics to create 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.

If you think this is something you can help us achieve, let's talk.
