Seeing the talent as an equally important customer as the hiring companies, Games Factory Talents decided that they wanted to build a community of developers and to showcase this community to the companies looking for new talent.
"Instead of building a platform only for the job seekers, we wanted to build something that would attract the companies to come visit our site in search for talent. Our goal was to have a way to present our talent to companies, before the company has to start the long and expensive journey of advertising an open job position."
This is how the Talent Board got started. The Talent Board was published on the 10th of September 2018, the day before Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki. The Talent Board features a variety of available game industry professionals, revealing just enough of information about them for companies to decide if this is someone they want to pursue.
"We've partnered up with a few companies after PG Connects, and we've also had more talent signing up through the website. We invite any companies looking for talent, and talent looking for new career opportunities, to come visit our site and to get in touch with us."
