Business & Analysis

Flying Sheep Studios is an independent games company of 17 people with great ambitions that has already shipped over 180 games.

Even though we have an office located in the Cologne Game Haus, right in front of the Gamescom location, our team may work remotely from anywhere in Germany.

We have built our company culture based on the following beliefs:

Diversity is the key to more creativity and better problem solving. Our team is currently composed of people of 5 nationalities and over one third female team members. Our company language is English. If we enjoy ourselves while making our games, this will translate into more fun games for our players. So we make sure to keep a harmonic atmosphere, and have regular voluntary team events (LAN parties, board game nights, karaoke etc...)

Structured processes enable us to deliver games without unnecessary stress. We are never satisfied with the status quo, therefore we use every opportunity to learn and improve our skills and processes, to enable us to meet all deadlines without having to crunch. This is important for our last point because…

... we believe that a healthy work-life balance is essential for an enjoyable work environment. Not only have we been able to avoid crunch completely the 7 years of our existence. We also offer flexible working time, home-office, and overtime is compensated in free-time.
