    Working at Sunday

    Together as ONE!

    Besides working on digital state-of-the-art products in a highly international environment, Sunday offers one particular trait which I have not experienced at this intensity: Besides being very skilled in their respective field of expertise our team members show an amazing motivation to move forward as ONE unit. This drive really is contagious!
    Thiemo, Business Development Manager

    I love being a part of this rapidly growing new company. My passion is creating beautiful art for games and working with these amazingly collaborative, super friendly and incredibly skilled people has made my affection for this industry grow immensely.

    Emanuela, Intern Game Artist

    Deliver the game!

    In game development, my worst nightmare is getting stuck in the release loop. Here at Sunday, we’re working on a result-oriented mindset that favors agile development and fast iteration. This approach results in creating an MVP in a relatively short timeframe and lets us measure the possible success of the project even before having a full-blown live product. So the effort spent on anything is never wasted!
    Burç, Game Artist

    Focus on what matters!

    I’m happy to have joined Sunday, we have great synergy as a team and everything is moving forward fast and smoothly. Here at Sunday, we focus on the things that bring more impact and avoid the energy drains that one can find in other companies.
