We believe the best way to lead is to take ownership of success and failure. We don't see failure as the end of the world, instead we view it as something that should be communicated and learned from.
At Wooga, we pride ourselves on communicating clearly, carefully and bravely. This helps our game teams and internal services do their very best and act on meaningful feedback.
Being Close To Our Players
Wooga's games have been played by millions of people around the world, and each has built their own unique experience inside the worlds we have created. We endeavour to share our players' excitement and listen to feedback on where we can improve.
The casual games sector is an intensely competitive environment and we believe that the best way to set yourself apart from others is to embrace innovation. Whether it's finding new ways to tell a great story or run experiments on how to integrate ads, we're always looking to add a little something special to our games.
At Wooga we encourage sharing best practices and have numerous internal events to ensure knowledge is shared and adopted; from 5 minutes of fame presentations and weekly standups to hosting external events and brownbags.
We are lucky enough to all work under one roof in the centre of Berlin. There are no satellite offices or video calls at strange hours. That allows us to all share the same vision and help the many instead of the few.
