About Coffee Stain Studios  

Coffee Stain Studios is the biggest development team under the Coffee Stain brand and it's where it all started back in 2010. For the last five years we've been developing Satisfactory, which is currently in Early Access. If you're not familiar with the game, take a look below! The game has been quite the success but there are still a ton of things we want to do with it.  

Micromanaging is not our style, so everyone needs to take responsibility over their own work. We want everyone to feel like they’re contributing to the end product and thrive towards always becoming better at what they do.  

Coffee Stain Studios is located in Skövde, Sweden. The city is one of the most game-centric ones in the whole country. People here work with games, Volvo, the military, or at the hospital. No exceptions. We’ve only got like three bars or something, but the train lets you go to both Gothenburg and Stockholm quite easily if you’re into that. It's a huge plus if you're already here or don't mind moving here. We are mainly looking for someone to join us working from the office.  

Diversity is something we encourage and support. Not only does creativity thrive when different backgrounds and perspectives are brought together, we also grow as people. Coffee Stain Studios has grown more diverse over the recent years, but we still believe we can improve more. If you're uncertain, here are some examples about how we've supported minorities: Donna Day, LTPF and various Embracer initiatives.

 Perks of being a Coffee Stainer  

We offer competitive salaries with excellent benefits. We try to follow the Collective Agreement as close as we can, which means payments to your pension fund and insurances. We also believe that a healthy body leads to a healthy mind, so everybody gets time off to work out.   

As an employee you will also have creative time every other week which lets your inner passion blossom. You will also have influence over your own work and taking initiative is encouraged. This goes for the projects we work on as well as life at the office in general.
