Bringing the world closer together through play.

Here at Playco, we make games that bring the world closer together through play!

We are a remote-first Series A company who recently raised $100m in series A funding, backed by Sequoia Capital. Our ideal teammates are thoughtful, low ego, and hardworking professionals who can both zoom into the details and zoom out to embrace the big picture. We are passionate makers and tinkerers with a healthy disregard for constraints and a love of experimentation.

A founding team of gaming veterans

Our founding team are veterans of the gaming industry, and includes the co-founder of Zynga, a mobile social gaming company, the co-founder of Game Closure, a company focused on building post-app store technology, the producer of the game “Kaito Royale”, one of Japan’s most successful social games, and a well-known figure in the Korean tech scene.

Anyone can pitch games

We offer the opportunity for anyone to pitch games, both as part of our regular development process, and through game jams we hold. With our game jams, you’ll have a week to make a prototype of a game, working with a team of people from across the company. At the end of the jam, we’ll pick the best games, and develop them to production.

Fully Remote and flexible hours

We’re a remote first company. There’s never a need to come into an office, and as we’re globally distributed, that’s not feasible anyways.

We also let you choose your own hours, so long as you’re available when we have online meetings.

You’ll also have unlimitted paid holidays, allowing you to recharge whenever you need it.
