Paradox Development Studio

At Paradox Development Studio we enjoy working close to our products and our fans. Our developers regularly interact with players on our forums, and at events, such as PDXCon. We think it’s important to get to know our colleagues, and so we end each Friday with a “social hour” where we embrace our geeky culture by chatting over a few drinks, or by breaking out into meeting rooms with board- and roleplaying games, and old video game consoles. Paradox consists of employees from all around the globe and with all manner of backgrounds, and we’re happy to offer relocation support for people applying from outside of Sweden.


Some of our benefits include:


If you think that this description matches you, we highly encourage you to apply as soon as possible as we will interview candidates continuously. If you don't match all the requirements, please demonstrate how your passion, attitude and interest in Paradox might compensate for this.

At Paradox Interactive we celebrate difference and care deeply about diversity and inclusion. We therefore encourage you, no matter who you are, to apply for this job if you think you’d be a great addition to our team.
