The Internet doesn't just make things faster and more efficient. With email and social networks, we can now communicate far more with family and friends than was possible before the arrival of the Internet. No longer bound by the rigid social structures of the past, we can access a wide range of information, reflect on it, make our own decisions, and branch out into new areas.
Our mission is to use the Internet to bring fun and happiness into people's lives, and to help make society more open and efficient.
The Internet has had a major impact on people's lives and on society, enabling things that were previously impossible. It's already hard to imagine what life was like before the Internet.
But the changes that the Internet will have on the world have only just begun.
There is still huge untapped potential. We want to do everything we can to create even just one more service; change the world even one second faster; reach even one more person with our services.
This mission gives us the passion we bring to our work each day.
No matter how innovative the idea, superior the technology, or ample the funding, you can't link it to success working alone. It's only by gathering a large number of people into the best team that you can get through obstacles as they arise and create amazing services. Creating a great company is the first step in creating the best services.
Our aim is not to create a company that somehow meets everyone's demands. There's always going to someone somewhere who criticizes a product or service, whatever it may be.
If you set high goals and pursue new ground to create new value, there will be times when you go on making mistakes day after day, when you start to despair that you have no chance of succeeding. Creating services that didn't exist before is no easy feat, but it's the people who take up the challenge knowing this who succeed in creating new value.
And it's in the eyes of those people – those who go on pursuing success wherever there is some potential – that we want our company to be seen as amazing. Creating that amazing company is the key to creating value for society.
We should all set goals higher than where we are, and achieve them. That repeated cycle is the key to personal growth. If something can be visualized, it can be achieved.
Work is play when your job is to make games. At GREE, we pride ourselves on giving employees the chance to turn their personal passions into play and we're looking for more top-tier talent to join the excitement.
If you're passionate about gaming, come join our fast-paced, take-no-prisoners environment. Packing your own Nerf gun heat is optional (but encouraged).
I have been working at GREE International full-time (More than a year)
Super smart people, sharp new leadership with a very low tolerance for office politics, great development teams building really cool mobile games, tons of great food (lunch & dinner) with fully stocked kitchens filled with goodies. Great benefits. You actually WANT to spend time with your colleagues after work!
Honkin long building! Getting from one meeting to another takes some serious strides, but burns the calories from all the food that's available.
Advice to Management
Keep driving home your vision of a new and improved GREE! I can see it changing for the better daily!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GREE International (San Francisco, CA) in May 2015.
Round 1: Casual discussion with recruiter regarding background, technical skills Round 2: "Take home" coding test through hackerrank.com. Round 3: Phone call with Software Developer. Asked to create a stack object with O(1) time for push, pop and getMin operations.
