Senior artist (Current Employee) –  Leamington Spa, Warwickshire5 May 2017
Kwalee has accumulated some great talent over the years and the company culture has benefitted with a great skill base and approachable group of characters. As a self-publishing company Kwalee best suits those who can apply a flexible approach to problems and development and keep an open mind to different and new approaches.

As well as its regular projects, Kwalee also provides opportunities to all staff to design and develop and be involved in special projects.

For those who have a lot of passion and ideas to bring to the development environment I recommend Kwalee as great company to learn skills and raise their game and meet some great like minded colleagues.
Pros
Good people, quarterly events, banter, kitchen goodies, good kit.
Cons
Challenging your thinking, smelling Pizza Express when you're hungry.

A fun and freeing challenge: you get out what you put in
Producer (Current Employee) –  Leamington Spa, Warwickshire5 May 2017
The requirement to shift direction and constantly question our creative decisions at Kwalee is a tough but ultimately fulfilling challenge. This process, although difficult to manage at times, helps to foster creativity and innovation within the company.

Developers are given a lot of freedom to question decisions and work together to produce the best quality products we can. This, along with regular innovation days that allow people to design and build their own games every week make Kwalee an exciting place to work.

The company runs on communication - requiring every member of every department to regularly catch-up to keep the engine running. There are daily problems to solve but we now have a staff full of motivated problem solvers.

The best part of the job is seeing a motivated staff pushing to do the best work they can across multiple projects that they all have creative input in.
Pros
Creativity encouraged, excellent profit-sharing scheme
Cons
Schedule changes can be hard to adjust to

Creative and ambitious games company
Finance Manager (Current Employee) –  Leamington Spa, Warwickshire5 May 2017
Kwalee have a great team including some games industry legends. e.g David Darling CBE and Andrew Graham who was the original creator of Micro Machines.

There's lots of opportunity to be creative and input into games design, even if you're not a designer. Creative Wednesdays have recently been restarted in a new format and allow everyone the chance to present their own ideas and if enough people give the thumbs up, develop the game.

The passion and dedication from the team is great.

The company is also extremely dynamic, uses cutting edge technologies and puts a heavy emphasis on analysing and continuously improving its games.

It's a really exciting place to work and everyday there are lots of new challenges.
Pros
Creative, ambitious, team-orientated

I enjoy testing here.
QA Technician (Current Employee) –  Royal Leamington Spa25 October 2016
Everyone here is really chill and very professional. If you have questions or concerns you can easily approach a person and ask. The hardest part would be when we release a new version to live due to the pressure of making sure everything is clean.
Pros
Snacks
