We believe that eSports makes competitive games even more fun for players. Yes, even mobile games - in fact, especially mobile games.

ESports is becoming a big part of our marketing for games like Clash Royale as we strive to engage our global player base through organized competition. But what exactly is eSports for a mobile, social game? How should mobile eSports differ from the established PC and console eSports scene? We don't have the answers, but we do believe that through the reach and ubiquity of mobile devices, eSports can become more mainstream and evolve into something that everyone does, everywhere. If you want to bring that vision to life, read on.

About Supercell

Supercell aims to create games that millions of people will play for years or decades to come. We believe the best people make the best games, and that’s who we’re looking for. If you love games and are passionate about playing and crafting them, and you’re looking for a job that provides you ownership and independence, you’re in the right place.

Supercell isn’t an entertainment company, it isn’t a start-up, and it isn’t just any game company. Our focus sets us apart. Focus means saying no a lot. To release four games, we have killed fourteen. We’ve shut down marketing campaigns because they weren’t perfect for our players, and we’ve scrapped a ton of game features that were simply too niche.

We also believe that focus means staying small. We hire only the most passionate doers and arm them with the trust and support to make the biggest impact possible. As part of a small, independent team at Supercell, you’ll be free to dream and succeed (and sometimes fail) big!
