King, the maker of hit mobile game Candy Crush Saga, is on a hiring spree, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Last Wednesday, King had a very disappointing IPO on the New York Stock Exchange. King’s stock closed down 15.56% from its IPO price of $US22.50 a share. In fact, it was the worst IPO of the year.
King has listed 165 jobs since its IPO, which represents about 25% of its workforce.
These jobs openings include positions in development, engineering, design, marketing, data analytics, and human resources.
King desperately needs to create more hit games, as its number one money-maker, Candy Crush Saga, is in decline. So it’s no wonder why King is looking to ramp up its workforce.
