creator Mind Candy is looking to expand its staff numbers significantly over the next year, potentially doubling its headcount.
The company revealed last month
that it is expanding from its London headquarters to a new Los Angeles office which will focus on producing video content for the game's young playerbase.
Mind Candy currently employs around 100 people, but talking to news website MCV today, the company's recruitment head Richard Chipchase explained
that it is looking to expand even further over the next year.
"At the start of the year we were 45 strong, now we’re closer to 100," he said. "I estimate we’ll double in size again over the year."
"We aren’t hung up on hiring staff from within the games industry. We’re open to meeting people from most industry backgrounds."
A June valuation
put the company at roughly $200 million, thanks to its popular Moshi Monsters social game reaching 50 million registered users
in total recently.
