Funcom was founded in 1993 and during the past 25 years we've created everything from pixel platformers to massively multiplayer online games. Today, more than 120 people from more than 20 different nationalities work and play at Funcom across our two studios in Oslo, Norway and Durham, North Carolina. We want Funcom to be a game developer where creative people can come together and leave a mark on the industry.

Embrace our Nordic culture

We are a Norwegian company and we are proud of our heritage. Our workplace is one where people feel comfortable talking directly to management, where we try to eliminate drama and politics, where we reward those who go above and beyond and where people are encouraged to find a healthy balance between their work life and their life outside of work.

Be the Player

We try to put ourselves in the shoes of our community. Our goal is for developers and players to always be on the same team. Through mutual understanding and honest engagement with each other we strive to not only create great games but also passionate communities.

Take Pride in What You Do

We are proud of the games we make and the work we do. Each and every one of us is determined to ensure that our work is of the highest possible quality. If something gets through the net, we learn from our mistake and we work together to prevent it from happening again. Quality is a team effort.

Make What You Play, Play What You Make

We’re all gamers, but that’s not enough. We believe that to make a great game we’ve  got to burn for it. Not only do we enjoy playing  our own games, we’re also fans of these types of games. Making the games that you play, and understanding them, will always be a competitive advantage.

Think Big. Build Smart

We believe that great games create moments that leave a lasting impression. Our design philosophy is to create these moments through thoughtful, intuitive solutions and to back this up with data whenever possible. But we’re also pragmatic and just as important as coming up with a grand design is knowing when to focus  and simplify.

Commit to Continuous Improvement

The Japanese technique of Kaizen is about making small changes that will, over time, add up to incredible results. We embrace this philosophy as a company, taking small actions to learn new skills, improve processes, and make small changes to keep ourselves relevant in an ever-changing industry. We apply Kaizen to all aspects of how we work, enabling us to create amazing games.
