King is a leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world, with people all around the world playing one or more of our games. We have more than 190 fun titles in over 200 countries, with hits including Candy Crush Saga, Farm Heroes Saga, Papa Pear Saga, Pet Rescue Saga and Bubble Witch Saga. We have 345 million average monthly unique users, as of second quarter 2014, across web and mobile platforms.
At King, we design casual games with a broad appeal, which are easy to learn and challenging to master. We build on a unique and passionate company culture predicated on collaboration, humility and respect. We believe all of these elements in combination have made our games a great part of our players’ daily entertainment.
A few words on Diversity at King
Everyone should be welcome as players but also employees in the gaming industry. We like to say that a great saga needs all sorts of heroes.
This is why we hire all sorts of people from the widest possible talent pool. Joining us has nothing do with where you’re from or what you look like. It’s all about talent: what you can do and what you have the potential to achieve with us. Which could be anything. Whatever your personality, ideas, cultural or social background, the sky’s the limit. At King everyone will respect your decisions and help you on your way. In part, that’s because we’re simply a big team of friends with a passion for games, but it’s also because our values form a key part of our recruitment process. Fit in with those values and you’ll fit in with us.

A few of our current initiatives
RoyaLGBT & Friends
This is our global employee network for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees, and others with non-majority sexual orientations and gender identities. One of their initiatives this summer was to host three Pride parade King floats in three different countries. Close to 200 Kingsters joined the parades overall to support and celebrate rights for the LGBT+ community.

King Future Game Hack
It’s important to us to give back to the society and do what we can to increase interest for coding. We’d like to do so through many different initiatives but one of our most recent is our very own Future Game Hack.
Through Future Game Hacks we have invited kids between the ages of 9-13 years old to spend an afternoon in one of our offices to learn how to make games in a fun an easy way. We aim to carry out an even gender split in each session to showcase that anyone could become a great programmer.
