Smilegate Group is a global company engaged in various businesses across the cultural contents industry to become a global IP prestige. Smilegate hold a solid game IP line such as 'Crossfire', the world's no.1 FPS franchise with 1 billion subscribers globally, Korea's representative MMORPG 'Lost Ark', and the global hit mobile game 'Epic Seven'. With such strong IPs, sales of Smilegate last year surpassed 1 trillion KRW and emerged as a representative cultural content export company in Korea. In 2021, CrossFire IP's first console title, 'Crossfire X', will be released globally with Microsoft Xbox and Lost Ark to start its global service, which will be another year of a giant leap for Smilegate.
Smilegate is also striving to establish a systematic welfare system so that developers can focus solely on development and create a pleasing working environment. The signature example is the children's daycare center 'Smile Tory', equipped with the industry's best facilities, to solve employees' parenting concerns. Also, Smilegate operated various in-house programs such as the 'Creative Challengers League', which support the creative activities of developers. The 'Creative Challengers League' is a unique program of Smilegate where developers can freely create games and services based on the ideas they have usually envisioned and improve skills. The company fully supports this annual program. Moreover, employees are given 'welfare points' for personal hobbies and self-development, and the company also supports 'in-house club' activities.
Recently, Smilegate revealed its roadmap to emerge in the global AAA console market, a new call for a Korean company, and its aim to win the most' Game of the Year' awards. To this end, Smilegate established Smilegate Barcelona and recruited the developers who led the works such as 'Perfect Dark' and 'Horizon Zero Dawn', which all got compliments by critics and users, as well as box office. Smilegate Barcelona plans to present a whole new game that has never been made, and as a developer of Smilegate, you can get a chance to involve in such projects and work with high-profile developers.
In addition to this open recruitment, Smilegate is constantly hiring experienced talents in various jobs and is actively conducting multiple projects to discover new growth engines.
