Life at CCP

From the very beginning, CCP has been known for its creative culture, its ability to spark the imagination and have fun.

We believe in equality and respect for all of our team members and community, and we believe in the importance of games. Our company values of excellence, courage, unity and honesty can be seen in the quality of our products, our strong connections with each other, and in our open communication.

CCP is Great Place to Work-Certified™ in all its three locations. The certification is a significant achievement, where validated employee feedback gathered through employee surveys, confirms that the majority of our employees have a consistently positive experience at CCP.

One of my favourite memories of working at CCP was at my first EVE event outside Iceland. At EVE North in Toronto, we visited the CN Tower which I figured would be OK even if I am pretty terrified of heights. There is a glass floor in this tower where you can see 342meters straight down and other CCPers and EVE players were walking across like it was nothing. So I was like „sure I can do this!“ But quickly I realized there was no way …not even with my eyes closed!

But before I knew it everyone, even those that I did not know, were chanting my name and leading me trembling and with my eyes closed, all the way across that damn glass floor. It was such an amazing experience and I felt so supported by this amazing community.

The working environment and atmosphere at CCP Games are just amazing. Here you can meet and work pleasantly with probably the most fun people from all over the world. And more importantly, these people are all very kind and enthusiastic. That really helped me to blend in when I was a newcomer back in 2016. And compared to other companies I’ve worked for, CCP pays more attention to the emotions and morale of all the employees. I was once flattered that my superior showed concern about my morale and mood during our 1:1 meetings. Thank you wonderful CCP!

Working for CCP for the past year has been amazing. The studio focuses on figuring things out that it doesn‘t know how to do yet, trying new things that haven‘t been done before. This tendency to try and grow as a team made me grow as a person a lot too. I feel very accepted and there‘s a great balance between support from supervisors and personal responsibilities.

Because the team in the London studio is quite small you cooperate closely with just about everyone working on the game. There’s a nice spread in age which makes for a good day to day atmosphere and a great opportunity to make friends. I’ve made some friends here that I’d love to work with for a very long time.

There are a few things that set CCP a part in my experience.

You are very much encouraged to be who you truly are at CCP and the company is also very flexible in dealing with talent.

The player community is fantastic and the company cultivates very strong bonds with the players through several initiatives like Fanfests and player councils and deep research into their behaviour like understanding how friendships are made which comes back to serve as a major “perk” for the employees because you understand on a deeper level how you are impacting the players and form more meaningful connections with the community.

There is room for crazy ideas while at the same time the company is surprisingly stable for a gaming company.

CCP has a very open sharing culture as to what is going on and how we are doing.Teams are encouraged to share their work, the CEO runs a very honest weekly blog that discusses everything from revenue to user tests and teams freely share experience and knowledge through projects.

CCP is an amazing company beyond my expectations! It is common to have a nice canteen, but free personalized breakfast, lunch and dinner? WOW, So convenient! At CCP Games, people are the most important thing. Everyone is respected and encouraged to be better. We are not just working here, we also have the opportunity to learn new skills, grow our knowledge, make like-minded friends and have fun together. We all get along very well and have a comfortable and happy atmosphere. If you like games, making new friends, and creating happiness, then you are welcome in our team!

Working at CCP, and the job I get to do, are things that I must remind myself on a regular basis are real and actually happening. I get to write about stars and spaceships, help fashion scripts for amazing videos and generally do something creative every single day.

When I started working here, it was clear that everyone’s goal around me was to help integrate me as soon as possible and contribute to the shared success of the company. In my team specifically, I get to work with hugely talented individuals who are masters of their craft and put out inspirational material daily. I am given the freedom to work flexibly, and from the very beginning felt completely trusted and believed in by my peers and management.

I have the confidence to be completely honest and open with my ideas, abilities and opinions when working cross-department with my colleagues, old and new.

CCP has given me an opportunity to build a career, something which would not have been possible in my previous job. I’ve been given the encouragement to develop new skills and gain qualifications. For me, CCP has been a place where my effort is recognized and rewarded. I’ve never regretted my move to Iceland from the UK.

This is the tenth year for me in CCP Games and my colleagues are as familiar as family now. I still remember when I started working for CCP, it surprised me because there were a lot of awesome people from different countries and companies but we all worked on the same project. CCP Games is the most humane company I‘ve ever seen. The CCP leaders always care about the growth and progress of their staff and provide the necessary help to show off their talents.
