Kabam – Why Work For Us?


Bringing the world’s best entertainment to the console in your pocket.

We value our players. Our players honour us every time they play our games and we value their support. We strive to build games that connect us to our players and help them connect with each other.

We are industry leaders. We hire for passion and diversity so that together as a team we can triumph in our collective skill. Every member of our team is a champion of quality. 

We're defined by our people. We believe that greatness only comes from great teamwork across every aspect of our business. We respect and support each other to be the best we can be.

We don't just make games, we play and love them tooWe’re a fun group of people who are passionate about the games that we build and the brands that we work with.

We go all in. We challenge ourselves to reach for new heights and bigger opportunities to bring the best in mobile gaming to our players.

As one of the world’s leaders in AAA console quality games for mobile devices, Kabam merges the art of game design and the science of consumer behavior to create immersive games. More specifically, our Vancouver Studio is the creator of Marvel: Contest of Champions and Fast & Furious Legacy. While our dedicated and passionate team is the driver behind the success of our games, it's the close-knitted and fun-loving culture that defines our competitive advantage.

Culture and teamwork are something we fight hard to maintain in our team, so willingness to communicate ideas openly, collaborate with other team members, and become an owner to all your tasks is absolutely necessary. Having said that, we are still a fun bunch; your quirkiness will be celebrated, and curious minds will be rewarded here. Our desks are full of gadgets and little figurines we’ve collected over the years, there are random drawings you’ll see in meeting rooms, and you will often see dogs (and humans) running around the cozy home we call office.

 

While we devote a lot of our passion at work, we also know to have fun. Check out our Careers Page and Instagram for a sneak peak of what it's like working here!

    I have been working at Kabam full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been with this company for close to 5 years now. In that time my role with the company has grown more than I have at previous studios. Kabam does a great job in fostering your career and helping you take the next step.

    The culture is also fantastic, the people here make my job easier and fun.

    Cons

    We've grown very quickly over the last year so there have been a lot of road bumps along the way. Our production didn't scale at the same rate our team did so we run into problems with teams not communicating as much and work being done that leads don't know about.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kabam in April-2017.

    Interview

    The usual interview content. However, the interview went straight into what was going to do. It was really quick and got response in a day with offer. However, after four months of the contract, the hiring manager changes the job description so the contract won't be extend. Waste of time and money for company and candidate. Turns out the tasks were to be "helper" to an employee with seniority but no prior accounting degree. The company does questionable practices demonstrated through the experienced employees and upper management.
