One of Toronto’s fastest growing gaming companies, Uken Games builds fun social and mobile games such as Bingo Pop, Crime Inc., Forces of War, and Mighty Monsters. Uken is one of the only true cross platform game studios around, making games for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and Facebook. Founded more than four years ago, Uken makes products that are now used by millions of people around the world, but the company believes it’s only the beginning.
In addition to designing, producing, and developing games, Uken builds several internal tools and services to facilitate the game-making process. Realizing the importance of moving quickly and improving constantly, the company updates its games and internal technologies weekly. Uken Games maintains a “quirky nerdy” culture that encourages creativity, collaboration, good ideas, and a data-driven mindset. The company’s office is outfitted with collaborative meeting spaces, big monitors, and a foosball table, and employees get free breakfast and lunch every day.
