A Little Bit about Kwalee….

Kwalee is one of the world’s leading multiplatform game developers and publishers, with well over 900 million downloads worldwide for mobile hits such as Draw It, Teacher Simulator, Let’s Be Cops 3D, Airport Security and Makeover Studio 3D. We also have a growing PC and Console team of incredible pedigree that is on the hunt for great new titles to join TENS!, Eternal Hope, Die by the Blade and Scathe.

What’s In It For You?

Are You Up To The Challenge?

As the Head of Server you’ll need to work with the other department head to understand the business and explore new opportunities. You’ll manage and evolve the server team to be able to develop current and future projects.

You’ll tackle complex architecture problems with your team leads and seniors and find solutions that can keep our several million daily active users playing happily.

Your Team Mates

We're a bunch of tech whizzes who are at the backbone of everything the company does. We maintain the servers' health to an optimum level so that our millions of players can continue enjoying themselves with our games.

What Does The Job Actually Involve?

Your Hard Skills

Your Soft Skills

Kwalee has grown fast in recent years but we’re very much a family of colleagues. We welcome people of all ages, races, colours, beliefs, sexual orientations, genders and circumstances, and all we ask is that you collaborate, work hard, ask questions and have fun with your team and colleagues.

We don’t like egos or arrogance and we love playing games and celebrating success together. If that sounds like you, then please apply.

A Little More About Kwalee

Founded in 2011 by David Darling CBE, a key architect of the UK games industry who previously co-founded and led Codemasters, our team also includes legends such as Andrew Graham (creator of Micro Machines series) and Jason Falcus (programmer of classics including NBA Jam) alongside a growing and diverse team of global gaming experts.

Everyone contributes creatively to Kwalee’s success, with all employees eligible to pitch their own game ideas on Creative Wednesdays, and we’re proud to have built our success on this inclusive principle.

We have an amazing team of experts collaborating daily between our studios in Leamington Spa, Lisbon, Bangalore and Beijing, or on a remote basis from Turkey, Brazil, Cyprus, the Philippines and many more places around the world. We’ve recently acquired our first external studio, TicTales, which is based in France.

We have a truly global team making games for a global audience, and it’s paying off: - Kwalee has been voted the Best Large Studio and Best Leadership Team at the TIGA Awards (Independent Game Developers’ Association) and our games have been downloaded in every country on earth - including Antarctica!
