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 four years we've been developing Satisfactory which is currently in Early Access. If you're not famililiar with the game take a look below! The game has been quite the success but there's 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 gamer-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 let’s 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 might not mind if you work from home from time to time, but we want you to be able to be here in physical form for the most part.
We believe diversity is a good thing and that creativity thrives when different backgrounds and perspectives are brought to the table. So if you’re any sort of minority in the game industry then we definitely encourage you to apply.
