To concentrate on several of its current games, the makers of Angry Birds, Rovio have established a new studio in Barcelona, Spain. The studio will collaborate with the company’s headquarters in Finland and offer development assistance for games like Angry Birds Friends and Dream Blast.
Barcelona is a bustling hub of mobile gaming talent in a time zone reasonably close to Finland’s. Although Rovio doesn’t have an address quite yet, there will be a physical office established very soon as announced further.
Rovio has already opened multiple Job Positions for its Barcelona studio
The entity in Barcelona will be reporting to Matthieu Burleraux, Senior Director Live Ops. “Rovio Barcelona will have a strong focus on level design and live operations. Levels are critical to an excellent player experience in our games, and we’re excited to build a strong in-house design capacity as our level designers are in charge of everything from the moment you enter a level to your win screen, from design mechanics to the level itself. Combined with us doubling down on Live Ops, we believe we will be able to provide everlasting games that feel alive and growing to our players.”, says Matthieu Burleraux.
There are already a bunch of open positions available, such as Lead Level Designer, Game Artist, and Economy designer. Even more open positions in Barcelona will be posted in the coming weeks and if you are already in Spain and would like to explore opportunities at Rovio, but cannot find a role that suits you, you can always get in touch with Rovio and get things sorted.
