Kongregate has opened its first international office in Montreal, Canada. Open positions include a Senior Marketing Manager, Product Manager, and Publishing Producer. More details are available on Kongregate.com.
Kongregate joins many other major game publishers in Montreal, but the company sees a special collaboration opportunity with the vibrant indie game development community. Indie developers have been and continue to be a big part of Kongregate’s brand and history, and Montreal is flourishing with the talent and projects Kongregate sees as innovative and valuable. The new office will also bring Kongregate closer to several long-time collaborators, including Juicy Beast, the award-winning indie development team behind the Burrito Bison franchise, the most recent of which, Burrito Bison: Launcha Libre, was published by Kongregate.
“Montreal has become a hotspot for game development with a strong and diverse talent pool,” said Emily Greer, CEO and co-founder of Kongregate. “Expanding our resources and time zones allows us as a company to be closer to our Canadian and European partners.”
The opening of Kongregate’s Montreal office brings the company’s location count to five major facilities, with its headquarters based in San Francisco and offices in Portland, San Diego, and Chicago.
