An opportunity has popped up with a growing business who are developing mobile and web games for clients all the way from America to India. This is a rare opportunity to work in the free to play games industry. They use the science of gamification to make user engagement simple

Based in the heart of Edinburgh, this business is going through exciting growth and working with big names across the globe. This could be your opportunity to work with new technologies and have a high level of autonomy on projects. The business specialises in helping its clients acquire, retain and monetise customers via web and mobile apps in the form of free to play games.

Just last year, they were the winners of the Best Crowdfunded Business in the 2019 Sports Technology Awards and their CEO was the recipient of Service Industries Entrepreneur of the Year at the Great British Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2019.

Their clients are multi-national i-gaming companies based in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the USA, but they have plans to expand into non-i-gaming markets
