"It wasn’t until I joined Supercell here in Shanghai that I realized how small the company really is, and how fast that makes us. We get things done together. It's a simple answer, because at Supercell the objectives are clear and the trust is absolute, so there is very little that gets in the way of making games.

Having been a part of a large organisation before, I was used to feeling anonymous, but here I felt genuinely welcomed and trusted from day one. What continues to impress me is the depth of talent in every team.

The best thing about Shanghai for me are the people – hands down some of the kindest people I’ve met."

"I was prepared to be joining a company where teams and individuals are granted lots of independence. However I was surprised by how flat the organization actually is. The small team size allows us to make quick decisions while trust allows us to experiment with confidence. For me, independence is the key: everyone gets to make decisions and we don’t need to worry about leadership breathing down our necks.

Having worked several years in Los Angeles, life in Shanghai feels easier. Our family enjoys the safety and convenience the city has to offer. You can get so much done by a few taps on your phone."
