Frozenbyte is looking for new talent to join us in making the hit games of the future. Our company is guided foremost by a desire to make awesome high-end games. That end result is guaranteed by our independence – publishers or investors won’t have anything to do with our games. Our latest game, Trine 2, has been praised both by critics and players as one of the all-time greatest games made in Finland. Trine 2 is also a financial success with over five million copies sold worldwide.
We do our best to maintain a great work environment and an enjoyable atmosphere, where everyone works together and knows what they’re doing. We’ve squeezed out all external timetables to a minimum, so we can focus on the important bit which is making games! Internally we work very professionally and strive for careful planning and time management. The quality of our games is what matters the most, so if needed, the timetables and budgets will have to adjust. We rarely have people working overtime, and if they are, we pay for it.
We self-fund all of our games. Our company is primarily owned by our employees, so we answer only to ourselves. Thanks to our swift movements, we’ve been among the first developers in the world on Steam, Mac App Store, cloud gaming services and Humble Bundle. In addition to that, our games have been on the launch of the Wii U, PS4 and NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 chips. We don’t use any subcontractors, and we’ve taken the independent do-it-yourself attitude so far that we have our own catering staff and a company moving van.
At the moment we are developing five different games, one of which is of a known series and four are new IP’s. Four of the games are coming to high-end devices, and one to mobile platforms. We are not bound by genre, platform, or IP; We make all types of games based on what feels good for us. Our projects are finished, and we don’t jump continuously from prototype to another.
What We Expect from our Employees
- A burning desire to make the coolest games in the world

- Ability to adapt to a quiet work environment
What We Offer
- Creating world-class games with awesome co-workers

The games FROZENBYTE designs are simply amazing, Trine 2 is a dream come true. Amazing visuals, fluid game play and physics with great interaction.
Thanks for your support! Sorry for the slight delay with answering. Anyone can apply to work for us, and we consider all good applications regardless of where they are from. However, it’s worth a note that we require our employees to work at our office in Helsinki, Finland – so applicants from other countries do have to be willing and able to relocate to Finland. So far we have also maintained knowledge of Finnish language as a requirement as well – Finnish is our spoken language, even though our written working language is English. So applicants who know Finnish, or at least show ability and honest interest to learn it, do usually have higher changes of getting an interview.
I hope this answered your question. 🙂 For more information about this and how to apply, I recommend you read the Jobs page at our website. Cheers.
