Our games couldn’t be truly global phenomena without industry-leading localization. You know that word-for-word translations simply won’t cut it, so you’ll stop at nothing to maintain the flavor and usability of our games across a huge range of languages and cultures. If you can combine a passion for language and an enthusiasm for working across cultures with gaming experience (playing them or, even better, working with them) then let’s talk!

  • Work and play for an award-winning global brand.
  • Think digital and create attention-grabbing marketing campaigns.
  • Get to know our 348 million monthly active users and learn how to excite them.
  • Discover a world where there are no limits on good ideas.
