Walk 5 minutes from our Copenhagen studio to the nearest station, get on a train, and 30 minutes later you crossed the mighty Öresund Bridge and arrived in Malmö, Sweden. This is the home of our second and newest office, a new step that opens the gates to even more possibilities, communities and talented people.
Game and tech hub
The Game Assembly in Malmö is the second-best gaming education in the world. Coupled with the brilliant minds of the neighboring Lund University, the game development scene has taken off big time in Malmö. There is a strong game community, and we all know what that means: conferences, learning opportunities, talks, events, parties, social clubs, and generally a lot of ways to meet people from the same niche as you, make friends and build a social circle. Feeling like you belong is something we know is important for the place you’re looking to move in to. Malmö does that tenfold: makes game developers, from any corner of the world, feel like home.
Like a holiday town, but cooler
This quaint city, with its cobbled stones, old architecture, huge parks and harbor, carries the vibe
of a holiday town. Due to its progressive industries and multicultural talent,
Malmö is also home to a vibrant art scene. Music, Swedish design,
hip fashion brads and art galleries turn this city into much more than meets the eye.
Bistros and small cafes are coloring the city, being also
home to more than 450 restaurants, Michelin and all. You can explore it all by foot, bike or even kayak.
International, buzzing with diversity
Because of its advanced tech and game development industries, Malmo gathered a melting pot of talented internationals from over 180 nationalities. English is your one and only need to get by, but if you wish to learn Swedish, the city offers a lot of options. Moreover, being a multicultural city also means Malmö has an abundance of art, music and culinary experiences.
Family and work-life balance
Just like Copenhagen, Malmö embraces an environmentally clean style of living, whether it comes from responsible recycling, green transportation or simply the innate Nordic mindset for sustainability.
With a smart and efficient infrastructure, Malmö makes it easy to get around and arrive in no-time at our studio, located at DevHub, in the city center.
The social and work safety, flexible work hours and many weeks of vacation make Malmö a place where your family can prosper and give you the peace of mind in order to enjoy your career at IOI.
Copenhagen is a stone-throw away
A 30-minute train ride away is the progressive
and international capital of Denmark, Copenhagen –
a land of fairy tales, happy people and a lot of cycling.
