King Barcelona New Games is looking for a passionate A.I. Developer to establish our tech and pipelines, define best practices, explore innovations in the field and, of course, produce mind blowing Artificial Intelligence in our games.

Skills To Create Thrills

Our team needs an experienced A.I. Developer who understands the field and can design and Architect entire A.I. solutions.

On top of this, we are looking for someone who has some experience being a leader, both directly through task management and goal setting and indirectly through high level execution and an infectious attitude. Candidates should be open and honest, collaborative, humble, and excellent communicators.

Your Role Within our Kingdom

Games Experience

Candidates must have extensive experience crafting videogames. Working in mobile games (or other platforms with limited hardware capabilities such as VR or handhelds) provides a unique environment in which high ambitions meet tight constraints. We are looking for a game maker who is not only comfortable with technical constraints, but also loves the challenge of overcoming those constraints.

Making the World Playful

Officially, we are a leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world. Unofficially, we’re a serious business that takes pride in having fun. Every single day at King, we mix intuition with logic, art with science and magic with mathematics to craft the games the world loves to play. Together with our parent company, Activision Blizzard, our mission is to bring moments of magic to everyday life. If you think this is something you can help us achieve, then we’d love to talk with you.

A Great Saga Needs Diverse Heroes

Making games is fun. Especially when you do it with people who share the same idea of what makes a good workplace, great. We craft games for everyone, no matter where they are or who they are, and we employ all kinds of people from all types of backgrounds to bring them to life. We believe we simply can’t expect diversity in our players and new ideas in our games without first nurturing it in our people. A great saga needs all sort of heroes. That’s why we provide equal opportunities and hire all sorts of talent.
