About Metaplay

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

Metaplay is a technology startup that develops a backend platform for mobile game studios. 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.

Founded in 2019, Metaplay is self-funded and fully owned by the employees. We work closely with top-tier game developers to help them ship their games. Our technology is used in multiple live games, serving tens of millions of players worldwide.

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.
