Our values, our culture

Our Culture

Our culture is our magic sauce. It’s a special blend of creativity, passion, and collaboration.

It’s what we expect of ourselves and how we treat each other. It is the reason we’re creating new experiences that raise the bar, delighting billions of people, and redefining the world of games again and again.

We craft brilliant games of mass appeal that bring moments of magic to everyday life.

We achieve this by getting great people to play well together in a creative environment to delight our players. At King we are entrepreneurial – we take smart risks, we learn fast and we share.

We are seriously playful: we balance art and science, we are supportive but demanding in everything we do.

As a result, we are building a company where everyone can thrive, are proud to belong, hold each other accountable and where we manage our business for sustainable growth.

What makes us unique

Our culture is based on a shared promise to each other as Kingsters.

It’s how we show up, it’s what expect of each other, and as a result, it’s the sweet reward we get.

We’ll know we’ve outdone ourselves when we’ve inspired the world to play.

Our Values

Being a Kingster isn’t only what you do, it’s also how you do it.

How we work together determines what we can achieve. Our values guide us every day in our work, in our decisions, and in our interactions with each other and our players.

Diversity at King

A great saga needs all sorts of heroes.

At King we share a passion for making the world playful. In order to achieve this, it takes people with different skills, experiences, and world views working together. There’s no such thing as a typical gamer. That’s why we embrace and celebrate what makes us different rather than what makes us the same. We believe diversity is King.
