About Coffee Stain (Publishing)

We are a small publishing team of about a dozen people that care deeply for every game we make, not just the one closest to release or the one that’s the most successful right now. We help each other out and being supportive is important to us, we believe that people are at their best when they’re supported and trusted. 

We frequently engage with each other around the games we're working on and playtests are a natural part of our day-to-day regardless of the role we have. We’re also part of a larger family with different studios and partners that we collaborate closely with. 

We can be flexible to accommodate your individual needs to make sure you have the right prerequisites to do your job and we allow for a healthy balance of working from home and working from the office, even outside of the consequences of the pandemic. We do however like to see each other in the office in person a number of times in any given week if we can, but some on the team work from Skövde, Göteborg, and Malmö, though the majority are located in Stockholm.

We also believe that a healthy body leads to a healthy mind, so on top of the wellness grant, you get some paid time off to work out. Did we mention there’s a gym right beside our office?  

 

Practical info 

The position is permanent, full-time, 40 hours per week, in Stockholm. 

Right now, most of us work from home, but it’s possible to work from the office as well. Some of us are there a few days a week and it’s up to you what you’re comfortable with. A bit over a year ago we moved into our newly renovated offices on Kungsholmen, by Fridhemsplan and we are all eager to start hanging out there more frequently again. 

Apart from us, the Coffee Stain group consists of COFFEE STAIN STUDIOS in Skövde (Sanctum, Goat Simulator Satisfactory), EASY TRIGGER (Huntdown) and COFFEE STAIN NORTH that’s currently working on a super-secret project. 

We look forward to hearing from you! Send an email to jobs@coffeestainpublishing.com

We delete all applications after two years if you don't request it sooner. By applying you also agree that we're allowed to keep the information you send in for that time period.
