How to Apply

About the Company

Paradox Interactive is a leading global publisher of strategy games for PC. The world-renowned strategy catalog stretches back to 1999, and the company holds a particularly strong presence in the United States and Europe. The publisher’s steadily-growing portfolio includes firmly established PC franchises such as the critically acclaimed Europa Universalis, Cities: Skylines, Crusader Kings, Magicka and the Hearts of Iron series created by Paradox Development Studio and a network of partner studios. If you're interested in what IPs we work with, you can browse them here.

Our games are played by millions of players each month. Over the years, we have released more than a hundred games and expansions and we currently have several active IPs that have been developed both internally and by third-party studios across the world.  Paradox has been listed as a top mid-size publisher globally by Metacritic for several years and each year we have several games on the top 100 best-selling games on Steam. We currently have offices in Sweden, The Netherlands, and USA. 

Working here

Paradox has seen a lot of growth over the recent years, and we see no signs of that slowing down. We are a mixed bunch, with people from over 30 different countries, with one thing bringing us all together - a passion for games. 

Working at Paradox entails a lot of freedom, responsibility, and the possibility to have a real impact. We try to keep our project teams relatively small, as we believe that the best decisions are made on the floor, and to stay away from long decision-chains.
