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 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 hire people for the studio, rather than the projects we are working on. If you join us, we commit to your for the long-run, regardless of what you will be working on or when a project ends. That is why, the people who choose to join us are here for our studio’s journey of success, the goals set together and culture of collaboration and care for the individual.
We meet in the morning and share breakfast, eat lunch together and party together. On Fridays, we have our Friday bar, where people gather at the end of the week to socialize and get ready for the weekend. Every now and then we have IOI Days where we can dig into our pet projects, attend presentations from colleagues or external experts on everything games-related.
Around Christmas, we usually have the house full of all our kids and we make ginger bread houses and paper cuttings together. In the summertime there are often football games going on and board game nights where we just go totally analogue.
And sometimes, we just work!
OUR PROMISED-BASED VALUES
To guide us every day in achieving our goals, we have set out these four promised-based values. These values steer our work and set out what can be expected from us.
Working at IO Interactive means immersing yourself in a huge team of more than 31 nationalities working in all of our studios: Copenhagen (Denmark), Malmö (Sweden) and Barcelona (Spain). 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.
IO Interactive means one culture across 3 studios. Everyone is working on the same projects, regardless of location. That is why, no matter where you join, you are just as close to the action.
In November 2016, we opened the doors to our new development studio in the heart of Copenhagen and unveiled a new company logo that represents our step into the digital world. After many years at our previous studio, where we created and released many games, we have moved across the city to a new, ultra-modern studio.
In January 2019, we opened the doors to our new studio in the center of Malmö, Sweden. The new studio strengthens IO Interactive’s commitment to deliver exceptional games in the HITMAN franchise and more, for our community and all our fans. We are thrilled to bring our own unique IOI culture to this great city. Read more here.
In April 2021, we opened a third studio in Barcelona, as part of our ambitious and exciting plans for expansion over the coming years. IOI Barcelona joins IOI Copenhagen and IOI Malmö as the third studio to work with our award-winning proprietary Glacier technology on all ongoing projects and universes.
We have a canteen in Copenhagen, an on-site motion capture studio, sound rooms in all locations, exercise and gym areas, plus a whole variety of spaces for all different kinds of work and recreation.
From meeting rooms named after our games, to chill-out areas and everything else we need for day-to-day work, all of our studios are equipped to host and foster a great working environment.
We want a studio that is fun to be in and where creativity can spark at almost every corner. That’s why we’ve made sure that we’re always prepared for spontaneous table-football tournaments or high-score competitions on arcade machines.
