Our story

We Got Talent Oy is a joint venture, formed in July 2018 by Finnish Game Day and Helsinki Games Factory. Our mission is to help the Finnish game and software industry to find new talent, while also helping developers to find their new home in the industry. Games Factory Talents is a brand of We Got Talent, focusing on matchmaking talent with game companies.

The founding team has a strong background in the game industry, business developement, talent acquisition and financing. The team from the Finnish Game Day side has been organizing successful recruitment events and matchmaking talent to open positions for a while now, and Helsinki Games Factory has already established themselves as an important developer of the Finnish game industry.

We focus on three key activities:

  • Organizing Games Job Fairs
  • Matching talent to open positions in the games industry
  • Outstaffing developers for fixed-term projects
Our mission

Our sole purpose is to help the Finnish game and IT industries to tackle the lack of talent they are facing.

In addition to our key activities, we also have in our scope the mission of fast-tracking juniors and students to start their careers.

We are currently working on our next event - more information about this to be added soon. If you have any enquiries about the next event, or our other talent acquisition services, please contact us at contact@gamesfactorytalents.com.
