“People here have been working in games for a while, they're experienced and believe in carving their own way to a successful product through new ideas, and also have the sheer determination to understand and adapt to a new, increasingly popular games market. And they want the control that PlayRaven gives them to achieve this goal.
“PlayRaven is a safe haven for people who share these same values.”
As is often the case in Helsinki’s hotbed of games development, Squire said the studio works hard to foster a relaxed, open environment.
“Our passion for diehard innovation is also the basis of our company culture at PlayRaven,” he said.
“There's a lot of communication between games teams, learning from one another, playing each other's prototypes, sharing feedback on each other's projects and so on. Helsinki as a whole is quite transparent and has a strong development scene, which is something that international members of our team tend to really value.”
Though already based in a city full of talented developers, PlayRaven’s team is made up of staff from numerous countries. As such, Squire said the studio offers assistance and support with relocation for job-seekers who are currently based outside of Helsinki and Finland.
