About the job

Hi! Do you want to be with us from the start?

We are NAG Studios, a brand-new studio founded on an insatiable curiosity about the elusive magic of game making. We push the envelope to give competitive gaming and esports its Superbowl format. Together with us, we have a distinguished list of professional teams, players, streamers, and game show producers.


Experienced Game Developer - You have a minimum of 5+ years of game development experience, preferably AA/AAA, and have worked on multiple parts of a game.

Modern C++ - You understand the difference between before and after C++11 and you have leaned into the latter way of using the language.

Experienced UE4 - You have spent a significant part of your game development experience using Unreal Engine 4. You know many important dos and don'ts and best practices while developing in UE4 during the different stages of larger game production.

Authoritative Server - We hope that you have experience working with any of the authoritative server solutions, distributed systems, or complex multithreaded systems.

Bonus: Large Backends - Additionally it would be great if you have some experience within large scale backend development.

Bonus: Video - Experience with video encoding and distribution is something that also could come in handy, should you have worked with that before.


Fail Fast & Quality - You are comfortable experimenting in order to fail fast, all in the name of maintaining a high level of quality throughout the software.

Communicator - You are a person that can identify, formulate, and effectively communicate risks, dependencies, opportunities to the team, and for the best of the product.

Educator - You are someone who patiently contributes to a collaborative, transparent, and learning culture within the team and who takes an active interest in improving the craft.

Team player - We fail and succeed as a team. Really. Read through and feel how you identify with Our Culture below since it is something that is very important to us and our chances of wild success.

The best idea must always win - We listen patiently, we speak up courageously and we never interrupt each other. We agree or disagree but in the end, we commit to a common vision and have each other's backs at all times. Diverse perspectives improve creativity, to us self-evident but also scientifically proven. Learn more

Vulnerability - Our success lies in how we treat each other. When was the last time you said “I was wrong..” or “I’m sorry..”? To be vulnerable means to speak up despite the fear of judgment, hurt, or failure. We strive to achieve world-class teams and that starts with trust, and vulnerability is where trust is born. Learn more

Creativity wherever - We all lead busy and complex lives. Hence, we encourage everyone to work where, when, and how they can achieve the highest levels of creativity, productivity, collaboration & communication. Success comes after happiness, not the other way around.

6 weeks' paid vacation + Employee stock options + Flexible hours & location + Occupational pension + Health grant + potentially the best colleagues you have ever had.

This is a permanent position and only applicants with a portfolio will be considered. As part of the application process, we might ask you to perform a work assignment.

While we strongly prefer you to be based out of Stockholm, Sweden, however for the right talent and studio-fit we are open to finding solutions.

Oh - NAG stands for No Asshole Games.

Om företaget

Wanna join us on our road to give competitive gaming and esports its Superbowl format? 

Because we are building a new kind of game development studio!

We are at the beginning of something big here, that is what we have heard anyway. But we will let you find that out by yourself.

We are early, but we are building our team, have investments in place, and are building a really great team that will do this together. We are four people right now, but more are joining this summer. 

We start out this journey by building a new type of competitive game, with three distinct edges;

Edge #1: Process, together with the community from day#1

Edge #2: Focusing on Spectating

Edge #3: A new game format/design

And yes, curiosity is our main drive, and the name "NAG" stands for No Asshole Games...
