Candy Crush Developer King Posts 165 Job Openings

By   /   Apr 1, 2014

With the success of Candy Crush Saga, developer King is now looking to increase its workforce by a whole 25 percent.

A total of 165 job openings have been posted in the careers section of its website that span across all of its studios located globally. King is searching for game developers, designers, engineers, marketers and sales experts. Its London and Stockholm studios are in need of over a dozen human resource managers; along with other marketing positions for its Berlin, Malmo, Malta, Romania, San Francisco and Seoul locations.

At the moment King is banking itself in the success of its mobile puzzle title Candy Crush Saga. Besides that the studio has only released two more games in the past year. Riccardo Zacconi, the company’s chief executive, stated last week that they need more time to launch good mobile titles that in turn will help them stay at the top of the charts.

King went public last week and saw to its shares fell by 20 percent – from $22.50 to $18.08. It’s unlikely that its shares will continue to dwindle, seeing its large revenue stream, thanks to the millions of people playing Candy Crush.

King’s attempt at trademarking the word “candy” earlier this year wasn’t at all well received by other developers. In North America many companies opposed the filing and eventually made King back off.
