As a company, we are all about honest, open and collaborative spirit. Relaxed but driven is how we roll! We work mostly remote and sometimes gather at our offices in downtown Tampere, Finland.

Some of our workplace benefits include choosing where you work from, choosing your own work hours and an equipment budget.

Makea Games gives you the tools to make games. Just bring your imagination.
