Working on the number one farming game for mobile is a ton of fun and occasionally demanding. That’s because the Hay Day team is focused on creating the best possible experience for the players, improving the game as often as possible and consulting player feedback at every turn. There is so much we can add to the game, and so many things we can do, that not a day goes by without a tough decision to make. We’re looking for awesome talent to the team that can help us expand the Hay Day universe in ways our players will love.
 
The ideal addition to the Hay Day team will step in right away and make big contributions to growing the world of Hay Day.

Right now we are looking for a passionate and experienced Game Artist to join the Hay Day team. Your portfolio oozes in quality and polish, and indicates a determination to push boundaries and create kick-ass art. You enjoy working as part of a team, but are hungry to take responsibility on an individual level.

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!
