Puzzle Studio

21.12.2017

Turning puzzle games into lasting hobbies with immersive stories and game worlds.

Rovio’s Puzzle studio is the home of the passionate team behind Angry Birds Pop, Angry Birds Blast and the newly launched and high-flying Angry Birds Match. While we have enjoyed great success with our current games, we have set ourselves even bigger goals for the future. 

Our vision is to reinvent the puzzle category by creating games where players can find fun instantly, but that can turn into years-long hobbies with deep and immersive meta game systems and dynamic social gameplay inspired by mid-core game systems. We are also exploring new ways to use narrative story and character worlds in casual mobile games. We want to create true emotional connection to the games we make, to make games our players will think about even when they are not playing.

We are a team-first organization. At the core of our DNA you will find openness, candid feedback, a strong desire to learn together, and a shared ambition to succeed. Our studio of 50 people is truly diverse, and we want that to come through in the games we make. We look for team members who wish to collaborate with brilliant minds and dare to dream big. We are hungry to break new ground on games that will redefine the genre for gamers who love it most.

"My journey in mobile entertainment started almost twenty years ago, and I have gathered experience with free to play (F2P) since 2005, working with Habbo Hotel, an online social open-ended world for teens. I joined Rovio in 2012 with a mission to help teams known for amazing premium games to embrace the world of F2P. During my career, I have learned that the only thing constant is change, and to succeed, you need to be leading that change. Diversity and inclusion are very close to my heart. I truly believe that embracing these will not only make the world a better place for us, but it is also a necessity for a responsible and sustainable business.
