About Metaplay

We license our backend platform to ambitious game developers who use it to create top-tier mobile games.

We strive for high quality, usability, robustness and scalability in everything we do. Our platform is full stack: distributed servers running in the cloud, web dashboard to manage live games and client-side Unity library to enable server-authoritative game logic. The SDK ships with source code and is fully programmable and extensible by our customers.

We are based in Helsinki, as are many of our customers, but it's not a problem if you aren't - talk to us about remote work and relocation.
