About the company

Thunderful is a relatively new company, but with old roots.  It was formed by a number of small indie companies coming together to make something greater than they could have done independently. Over the last few years, Thunderful has grown into four different offices with roughly 120 people making games in team sizes between 15-35 people. 

The teams within have developed the award-winning SteamWorld series, known for its frequent genre-hopping and inclusive design, as well as more recent AA-games like The GunkLost in Random, and other, un-announced but equally charming titles.

This position requires an EU-citizenship.

The Skövde Office

Thunderful Skövde lies nestled within the beating heart of a bustling science park. With one of Sweden's most prominent video game universities as our neighbor, we have the ideal soil for cultivating the seeds of new game ideas into full-fledged games. From our spacious 6th floor office we have a spectacular view of the stunning Schlätta vistas, and our two south-facing balconies are ideal for having lunch in the sun together. Plus, it's only a five-minute stroll to the train station! Skövde also hosts many other studios and has a very active and close-knit development community with activities all year round. Almost 3% of the population are involved in the games industry somehow (which must be some kind of record!).
