People Team Lead

At Supercell we have proven that the best teams make the best games. With only 350 employees in 4 countries we have demonstrated the strength of small independent teams.

We want to make Supercell an even better place for our teams. A place where they can make the biggest possible impact. We want to do more for our employees and leads. To pursue this goal, we’re forming a People Team and looking for an experienced Lead to help us build that team. The team will be global, and the lead position can be held in any one of our offices: Helsinki, San Francisco, Shanghai or Seoul.

What makes Supercell special is the level of independence that particularly the game teams have, and the inherent chaos which feeds creativity. As a result, we are looking for someone who will harness this and not work against it. We do not need processes for processes' sake, we need someone who can build on our strengths and unique culture.

So, this is not any ordinary HR team we’re putting together. This team will focus on the people who make Supercell an amazing place to work. You’ll have a chance to build a tight yet impactful, global team that will re-imagine the way we enhance the Supercellian experience for each and every employee.

  •  Lead our global wellness and mental health programs

  • Process or procedure driven
  • Bottleneck for getting things done

About Supercell
We are a mobile game developer based in Helsinki, Finland, with offices in San Francisco, Seoul and Shanghai. Since our launch in 2010, we've released five games globally – Hay Day, Clash of Clans, Boom Beach, Clash Royale and Brawl Stars.

To achieve this goal, we create the best possible teams and give them the freedom and independence that are core to our success.
