About the Company

Supersolid is a leading mobile games studio based in central London. Having a small team hasn’t stopped us from developing highly successful games, including Super Penguins (with over 15 million downloads) and Adventure Town (with over 1 million downloads in its first 2 weeks). In 2015, we released Food Street, now a leading restaurant management game, with new content and feature updates released every month to a growing and passionate community of players worldwide. Home Street is our recent release, a home decoration and life simulation game with over 7 million downloads since launch October 2017.

In fact we think small teams can create amazingly successful games… as long as we have the best talent! And we’re always on the look out for new additions to the team. We’ve all had incredible experiences in developing games (particularly casual and free-to-play), both on browsers and mobiles. Some of us come from different backgrounds, but there’s no question when it comes to games – we love them!

We’ve got a great new studio on Haymarket (minutes from Piccadilly Circus, Soho and St James’ Park) and we do all the usual new tech company stuff – beer in fridge, roof terrace access, Foosball table, stickers on walls, chocolate everywhere… you get the idea!

It’s fun, but our ambition is serious – we’re here to make the most successful, genre-leading games for mobile and tablet devices. It’s hard work, but we love it and it’s incredibly rewarding. We also have some of the most high profile backers in the world – Index Ventures and Initial Capital (who have supported Supercell and King, amongst others) – and we’re continually looking to build and sustain the best team. Will you come join us?
