  • “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” so we get fresh fruit at the office every day but of course you also get a private medical insurance for you AND your family, just in case.
  • Monthly events are there to get you to know your colleagues, drop by our hairdresser’s to get ready (and forget your wallet).

Working at Social Point

Guillem, Systems

My team builds scaleable ands highly dependable IT infrastructures, whilst reducing both operational and infrastructure costs. As games grow and produce new features, the challenge is to grow these infrastructures and ensure that they remain stable and failsafe.

From a global perspective, it’s awesome to be part of a Barcelona-based company that is still relatively small but is making noise all around the world. From a more personal perspective, I am incredibly proud of our systems crew. Working with these guys is amazing.
