We’re Malmö’s knights of creativity

We believe that great games are developed by working in small, autonomous creative teams that control the whole process – from idea to amazing game. And although we have short lead times there’s no crunch, we set our own agenda. Our close connection with and instant feedback from the player community, enables us to deliver truly magical moments. We value your free time and your need to be inspired, because we know that creativity doesn’t come from routine work and staring at a screen. It appears everywhere and anytime. That’s why we call ourselves developers of magic and knights of creativity.

Our Malmö office, at Bruksgatan 1, offers a great and creative space and comes complete with a terrace for summer! We have developed one of King’s biggest success stories to date, Pet Rescue Saga, which we just released on mobile platforms. We are growing rapidly and are currently looking for more creators of magic to realize our visions and game ideas. So if you’re keen on games, enjoy real empowerment in your role and are looking to work for a dynamic, fun and industry leading company, then King is the right place for you!

‘What do we do now? How do we get better than this?’

Karina Cantera, Office Manager, has been working at King since the opening of the Malmo studio and has a really important role in moving the studio to its new location at Bruksgatan 1.

What is it like working at King?

It’s fun! That’s the best and most important thing about King. We have a great work culture and great people who make up that culture. We always make sure that the people who join have the right cultural fit. It is just as important as experience.

What has happened over the last couple of years?

Malmö has grown a lot, although considerably slower than the rest of King, but fast for us. We now have functions we didn’t have before, like IT and HR so we are much more independent. We’ve sort of grown our own identity and with Pet Rescue Saga we’ve gained respect.

As Office Manager, what factors did you consider for the new studio?

First of all, it was important that the new studio would be located close to the train station, which is perfect for the ones that commute from other cities close by, such as Lund and Copenhagen.

Another factor is that when you are growing you can lose the closeness of a small office. As the new studio is four times bigger than the previous one, we’ve been thinking a lot about internal communication. We’ve been looking at how to keep the personal contact the way it is, but still to have useful quick tools like chat software. That’s been very important for us so that we can maintain the closeness we have in Malmö. To stay as personal and relatable as we always have been.

King won Universum’s Sweden’s best employer 2013.
How do you keep that going?

When we won, we were like, ‘What do we do now?
How do we get better than this?’. So we’ve
been looking at how to continue to spread
our values in the studio, for example,
what does Fun & Friendly look like?
One idea is that we will have BBQ
on the rooftop throughout the summer.
That will be awesome!

Planning a Nordic adventure?

We know moving to another country is a life changing decision. That’s why we’ve gathered everything essential into this easy to read guide so you don’t have to. You know – so you can enjoy your time fully when you get here. Like taking your polar bear out for a walk, having a fika, eating cinnamon buns and learning how to

distinguish the Swiss from Swedes. Don’t worry now, you’re capable and smart enough to know that a Swede isn’t just a vegetable. All we want is to be there for you. Whether you’d like help filling in a tax form or need inspiration for places to eat, live and sleep – King is at hand.

What’s Sweden like, really?

In the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place in Malmö, the world got to experience what Sweden is like in a, somewhat, accurate portrayal. If you missed it, have a look at their very humorous take on Swedishness.

Toys and tech

From Big Data techniques to game-changing developments, we’re always working on something pioneering and exciting. And we’ll make sure you have all the tech goodies you need to forge ahead. We’ll even let you work on your hardware of choice, with whatever operating system you fancy. Mac, PC or Linux ­ it’s up to you.

People and perks

We believe anyone can have a great idea, so an open, friendly atmosphere is important to us. It’s probably a big part of why we achieve such high employee engagement scores and our people say they love working here. Competitive pay packet and gym membership or little things like open plan offices, games rooms and free food and drink help too. As does working in small, agile teams and getting together for regular hackathons, game jams and international, office-wide away days.

Learning and development

We take personal growth seriously. So as well as getting to grips with lots of awesome learning experiences, including access to training and well-stocked office libraries, you’ll find that ours is a culture of non-stop coaching. And when it comes to sharing expertise and knowledge, we’re about as open as it gets.
