An Insider's view of SciPlay

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our onboarding experience ensures new SciPlayers are engrossed in our culture from day one. We previously relied on in-person visits to give recruits a feel for our studio, but remote onboarding presented a new challenge. We revamped the process, adapted to virtual training and hold frequent check-ins so new hires feel engaged and connected.

It’s the first place I’ve felt safe to explore career options, with the mentorship I needed to succeed.
