It's not just about playing the game at Stakester, the world’s fastest-growing skills-based competition platform. It connects players who want to test their skills by playing their favourite video games for money and prizes. The company believes in empowering people to test their hard-earned skills in a whole new level of competition.

Stakester, which is based in London, offers competitions and knockout tournaments for some of the biggest titles in gaming, including FIFA and Call of Duty. It is also expanding into the mobile gaming space, so users can now play mobile games in asynchronous leaderboard-based competitions. Its mission is "to provide a competition worthy of the skills and self-belief of players everywhere".

For staff, one of the business’s core principles is that work should be something you do, not just somewhere you go. That’s why Stakester employees can determine the criteria for their own success, whether that’s setting their own key performance indicators, or choosing to pivot into a new role. The company believes that freedom and flexibility lead to the best outcomes.

Stakester employees are also offered a host of benefits, including unlimited holidays, a work-from-anywhere policy, full health and dental cover, a free subscription to a wellness platform, free boxing classes at the office — even an "all-you-can-drink" pass for the local coffee shop.

A micro-bonus scheme provides a way of rewarding staff for small tasks that deserve huge praise. Employees can work for rewards that excite them, from guitars to coffee machines or private trainers.
