WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
Freedom and Responsibility
We embrace a free & entrepreneurial culture but we only hire team players who can manage the responsibility that comes with it.
Skin in the game
We want our staff to have a stake in the business. If the team has skin in the game, we’re more likely to win. If you are happy to take a slightly lower salary to obtain more shares/options or even invest, that is great but not essential.
The Power of Community
Shared experience is also part of our culture. Its always more fun to do things together and even if we work remotely this is central to making Network Gaming an enjoyable and rewarding place to work
Compassion and Wisdom
In a decentralised business, our people must be knowledgeable and display sound judgement. We also look for people who can understand and empathise with others, and
selflessly help other team members in need. These two qualities combined are powerful community builders.
We are GAMEDOGS
From ‘Hide & Seek’ to Monopoly, Minecraft to marbles, e-Fifa to football, we love the game. We dedicate time to improving at whatever we play, take care to understand the inner workings of each game and strategise on how we can win.
