About the Company

ALL THAT MATTERS

Good old fun - working with your passion and creating entertainment should be fun. If we have fun creating games, people will have fun playing them. Fun does not exist in a vacuum though. It takes balance, positive energy and an inclusive team.

Creative independence – to make great games and create worlds that resonate with players we need creative control of the core aspects of the game. We will always fight for the power and mandate to master our own projects.

Individual ownership - every team member should feel a true sense of ownership and feel responsible for the games success. At the end of the day we do this together and the contributions each and everyone does brings us closer to a great game!

These three things define the Sharkmob experience. We work hard to maintain this culture and we believe it is the key to making great games and creating a healthy place to work.
