Kickstart your games career
The Finnish games industry has seen a long period of growth and there is no end in sight. The industry faces a constant lack of professionals and e.g. Neogames has estimated that there is a yearly lack of about 280 professionals.
Games industry has been the quickest growing branch of entertainment business and has kept its growth even through difficult financial times. 95 percent of the turnover of Finnish gaming companies comes abroad making the industry truly international.
