What is it like to work for Dovetail Games

Leadership
Leadership
Dovetail Games have a weekly company meeting where the leader updates everyone on business performance and the teams give updates of the software to all employees. 
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Dovetail Games want all employees to live to work, not work to live. They operate core business hours of 10am to 4pm which allows their people to fit work into their lives with hours that suit them and their family commitments/sleep patterns/commute. They also allow an extra level of flexibility with regards to working around personal commitments, such as the school run or a boiler service, in which employees can adjust their hours even further, as long as they still complete their contracted hours. 
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Dovetail Games sell the vast majority of their games digitally, instead of as a boxed product. This massively reduces the amount of plastic needed in comparison with other games companies, and negates the need for them to be transported, thus reducing their CO2 impact.
