In November 2016, we opened the doors to our new development studio in the heart of Copenhagen. After many years at our previous studio, where we created and released many games, we moved across the city to a new, ultra-modern studio that is now our home
Green, clean, and relaxed
Bicycles…bicycles everywhere. Just as the rest of Denmark, Copenhageners see renewable energy and taking care of the environment as an essential way of life. With its goal to become the first carbon-neutral city, everyone in Copenhagen recycles and rides a bike, while public transportation is also energy-based and well connected. Bicycle lanes are a priority, because it is the fastest means of transport.
Family and work-life balance
With a 37-hour work week and flexible working hours, it is ingrained in the Danish work culture
that family, spare time, hobbies and a relaxed lifestyle are just as important as work.
That is why you will find balance between work and the life you have outside working hours.
Your managers get it, and you will get used to it too.
Security, comfort and welfare
Is Copenhagen pricy? Maybe. But the system works. You see every penny you pay in taxes go towards the welfare and public system that you are expected to use as much as you want: public health insurance, smart infrastructure, education, research, safety and digitalized systems for making your life easier. Trust is also essential. That’s why Denmark keeps its place as top contender in those World Happiness Reports.
International, booming urban hub
Street parties, large music festivals and a cultural scene with more events than fit your calendar. There is something for every art lover and every age.
Moreover, English is a language everyone speaks, and it is absolutely everything you need in Denmark. From clerks, to children and elderly people, everyone speaks English fluently.
We have 28 different nationalities in our Copenhagen studio, specialists from all corners of the world who relocated here, with family or alone, to work at IOI. Many formed very strong friendships and spend time together outside of work. English is truly our official language and you’ll even catch our Danish employees speaking English between themselves.
