San Francisco studio set for rapid growth

Growing social gaming firm Bigpoint is entering a rapid phase of workforce expansion, with a goal to add some 350 people.

The German-born company this year expanded its office network to the US, having established a San Francisco studio.

Now just six months later, Bigpoint wants to grow the studio by some 80 staff.

"Coming to San Francisco has helped us quickly enter and begin competing in the North American online gaming market," said company CEO Heiko Hubertz.

“After only six months of operation here, we're ready to get started on a number of new projects that we'll announce soon.”

Bigpoint currently employs over 500 people across its studio network in San Francisco, Malta and Berlin.
