Congratulations, you’re ready to level up from four coders in a garage to become a 50/100/500 person team. How do you make sure that your team is growing not just larger, but smarter? Hiring great people is hard and keeping them is even more challenging. Over the last 8 years, GameDuell has evolved with the times, from its roots as a casual web developer with three people to a cross-platform, international game company with over 200 people in several countries. Michael Kalkowski, co-founder and Creative Director of GameDuell will talk about the steps and processes that GameDuell took in order to maintain creativity, innovation and culture while facing the twin challenges of corporate growth and high speed technology changes.
