We are Io-Interactive
It’s simple. Io-Interactive is here to deliver exciting world class entertainment, and we want our games to play and feel like the people who created them. It is our way of making sure that we will always deliver something unique and interesting. This requires not only lots of work but also lots of guts, talented people and a great working environment and we do our utmost to have all of this.
We’re doing as much as we can to make IOI feel like a second home. We meet in the morning and share breakfast, eat lunch together and party together. On Fridays we sometimes have our Friday bar – either planned as a big thing where we run around in the building with laser guns – or just spontaneously started somewhere in the building. Every now and then we have IOI days where we can dig into our pet projects or attend presentations from colleagues or external experts on everything game related.
Around Christmas, we usually have the house full of all our kids making ginger bread houses and paper cuttings. In the summertime there are often football games going on and besides these three cornerstones of Denmark (food, beer and football) there’s a thing like the monthly board game night where we just go totally analogue.
And sometimes, we just work!
Working at Io-Interactive means immersing yourself in a huge family from more than 23 nations working in Copenhagen. The teams are working on cutting edge technology, supported by our tech department and we know that the gaming world is in constant change – and so is IOI – but no matter what we do, we can assure you that it will not be boring.
Except the following corporate text… It’s slightly boring but we won’t force you to read it.
