Goodgame Studios – A Success Story
We are Europe’s fastest-growing game company. Founded in 2009, we have since grown to comprise more than 800 staff, with whom we develop Free2Play online games. Over 190 million registered users worldwide play these social games online (as of January 2014).
Our growth has been recognized with numerous awards, such as the “Entrepreneur of the Year 2011″, “2012 Red Herring Europe Top 100 Finalist”, “Fair Company,” and many prizes for our games.
Our success can be traced back to our talented team of experienced e-business experts and enthusiastic newcomers. Determination and an analysis-based approach help us to learn more every day, constantly improving our games. It is our ambition to continue our rapid expansion.

We ensure a good work-life balance and regular working hours: here it’s the results that count, not the overtime. We nurture a culture of appreciation. Everyone is able to make a difference here from their very first day. We offer our employees fruit, drinks and other benefits, creating a pleasant working environment.

All of our technology is developed by us, and so we profit from our powerful core modules which are implemented in all of our games and systems. This, together with constant evaluation of the latest technology, enables us to continually improve our users’ gaming experience.

The Driving Force: IT and Online Marketing
Based in Hamburg, we control hundreds of highly available servers all over the world, which can be accessed by hundreds of thousands of users at a time. To make this possible, we work with advanced technologies such as scalable software systems, multithreading, cloud computing and continuous integration in Java and our own core libraries as well as our own framework in Flash.
In online marketing, our experts for search engine marketing manage campaigns tailored to each of our key markets, while e-mail marketing supplies our players with news, sending millions of e-mails each month to do so. Specialists also guarantee premium results in SEO, display advertising, affiliate advertising, CRM and landing page optimization.
Pleasant Atmosphere and Those Little Extras
We take premium working conditions as a given: Bright offices in green surroundings and with state-of-the-art equipment. A relaxed atmosphere where colleagues quickly become friends. No one has to come to work in a suit. Flat hierarchies that make quick decision-making and a fast rise in the company possible.
Plus, we offer lots of extras. Like a swimming pool and a fitness room, Wii, PlayStation 3 and big screen TV, fresh fruit, a large choice of muesli, coffee, tea and water throughout the entire day. In the evening you can enjoy a beer or soft drink. Regular team events, cheaper bus and train tickets, and flexible day care right on the premises round off our offer.

And there were also three prizes awarded by gamers — “MMO of the Year 2013” in the categories “Best Portal” for Goodgame Studios, “Best Strategy Browser MMO” for Goodgame Empire and “Best Casual Browser MMO” for Goodgame Big Farm.
