Game Lead, New Game Helsinki

Are you a player-centric Game Lead up for developing our next global hit game?

Ready to join one of Europe's fastest growing game companies?

If yes, Metacore could be the right place for you

We are a game company from Helsinki, now also in Berlin, best known for our hit game Merge Mansion and our people-first company culture. Built on trust, our culture allows us to work autonomously, efficiently, and ambitiously. We have mutually agreed on five cultural norms to describe how we build trust and work as Metacore – you can find them here.

Our company’s mission is to entertain hundreds of millions of people for decades. Although we already entertain 50M+ players worldwide and have grown into a team of 200+ game industry professionals in less than three years, we’re only getting started. That’s where we hope you come in: to start working towards our next global hit game. With a focus on our audience, you'll concept and outline key elements such as premise, visual style, and meta progression. You'll collaborate closely with other Game Leads steering new game projects, and our new games marketing, research and tech services teams. Your commitment to creating games for players, not ourselves is key to succeeding in this role.

Our equal opportunity statement

To entertain hundreds of millions of people for decades, we need diverse teams that understand our diverse audiences. The key to unleash our creativity is a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture of trust where Metacoreans from all walks of life can be themselves. We celebrate our differences and believe they are the strength that drives us forward.

We are committed to offering equal opportunities for all, regardless of background, age, race, color, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, sexual orientation, family status, education, socioeconomic status or any other characteristic. We build and maintain a workplace and industry free of harassment and discrimination.

We also aspire to have DE&I as a fundamental part of our game design process to enable us to create even better and more inclusive games, communities and entertainment.

If you require any support or have specific needs during the application process, please don't hesitate to let us know. We look forward to hearing from you!
