Mark Oxenham joins Kwalee as Lead Programmer

Kwalee is gradually building up its development team with gifted, creative and enthusiastic people. Mark Oxenham epitomises this with his great academic background and solid industry experience.?

Mark has a first class honours degree in Software Engineering from Oxford Brookes University, where he worked as an engineer and project manager on the Computing Society's open source project. He was also employed by the university as a student ambassador, mentor and guide.

Mark comes to Kwalee from Codemasters where he worked on Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, Operation Flashpoint: Red River, Bodycount and F1 2011. These gave him a wide range of experience across many disciplines.

David Darling, Kwalee CEO , is delighted to have Mark on board: "Mark is just the sort of adaptable team player we are looking for as we staff the company up. He combines an excellent academic record with a proven ability to deliver across a whole range of different projects. Already he is working very well to lead our other developers to create our proprietary technology and to start the development of our planned app projects."

Mark is also extremely happy:?"I was looking for a new challenge and a great opportunity. Creating apps is a very different job compared to making console games; There is far more room for creativity and doing something different. I am extremely psyched for the chance to work with David and his growing team of very gifted developers, together we will produce some fantastic work."

Kwalee continues to look for the very best people with several vacancies across a range of development and marketing disciplines listed on their website, which also features a new recruitment video featuring David Darling.
