About Our People


By Enthusiasts... For Enthusiasts

We are growing fast and we have big ambitions to lead the way at the pinnacle of innovation. We are looking for individuals with the energy, drive and skill to craft a new generation of entertainment, across a multitude of gaming platforms. We would love to speak with talented people who take pride in a job well done and thrive in a positive environment, where ideas are celebrated, and everyone has a voice.

Our Values


Make fabulous stuff

We are passionate about crafting high quality simulations that excite and engage both experienced and new players.


Enhance life

Our aim is to make software that enhances life. We don’t make games that are addictive, promote gambling, glorify violence or are discriminatory in any way. We would rather celebrate the human condition than devalue it.


Continuously improve

We work as one team, communicating frequently, openly and honestly in the knowledge that when we work together great things happen.


Walk tall

We are proud of who we are, and the entertainment we deliver to our customers around the world. We don’t work for Dovetail Games – we ARE Dovetail Games.

I quickly realised that working with growing companies run by passionate people was the most interesting part of what I did as an accountant.
