They proved to us the power of sharing, as to today, the company paid out over £1 million to its staff.

One in ten staff members have doubled their salary
Kwalee has 73 team member, in the last 15 month, one in 10 staff members have been able to double their salary. The hyper-casual developer also values all staff ideas and they give a profit cut from the titles that launch. In a press release sent to Mobidictum, David Darling, CEO of Kwalee said:
All companies claim to value the ideas and creativity of their staff, but for us it was important to enshrine that in policy. Not only do we welcome game ideas from all corners of the company, but we actually rely on them to power our internal game development. It’s only right that everyone has a stake in what they create. Beyond that, we feel it’s essential that all employees, from game development to administration, can share in the successes, as it’s not just about the money but creating a real ‘community’ feeling in the studio, where everyone, no matter the discipline, is working towards one shared goal.
He also added that getting one million in payouts is a “great milestone” in this short time. The team also hopes to reach two million quicker next time. Some junior members of the team were able to almost double their yearly salary in just three months. Other staff have funded house deposits or purchased cars and went to their “dream holidays”.
