About the Company

Ambitious and independent, we made international big leagues with the globally acclaimed The Witcher series. Over 25 million copies sold and more than a 1000 awards garnered later, we still, and more than ever, believe in gamer-centric video game development and building an honest, bilateral connection with gamers. Our mission is this: we want to deliver bleeding edge, mature role-playing games with a deep focus on storytelling, and we want to wrap them in an honest, good value for money package gamers find worth their hard-earned cash. We’d love all games and gamers to be treated like that, and we’re working hard every day to make that happen. We started our journey as a bunch of dreamers in 2002; there are over 500 of us now and we’re still growing and looking for people who can help us pack an even bigger punch. We’re headquartered in Warsaw, Poland, and we have offices in Cracow, Wroclaw and Los Angeles. We’re stock exchange listed, but we never allow this to put any brakes on our creative momentum.

Our offer:

  • A modern and relaxed studio atmosphere.
  • A chance to work in a booming industry within an international team.
  • Fresh fruit twice a week for everyone in the office, a wide choice of tea, fancy coffee machines and fit vending machines.
  • Free library with a wide range of games and books.
  • Many social activities and parties.
  • Private healthcare & card to many sports clubs
  • From 20 to 26 days of paid vacation per year.
  • Step by step assistance and a ‘Relocation Package’ for new staff willing to relocate to Poland.

  • An exciting chance to work with the developers of one of the most acclaimed role-playing games in recent history.
