You already know that Tamatem is the leading mobile games publisher in the Arabic speaking market. But there’s a lot you don’t know about us! As of today we have been operating for five years now, so we’ve compiled a list of five things you didn’t know about Tamatem.
1. We’re Expanding
Tamatem has been in our current space for three years now, we’ve built a space to empower employees and make them the best at what they do. Over the past year, we’ve been on an on-going manhunt for talented people to join our team, which means that our space isn’t enough to accommodate all 36 people. That’s why we’re turning our current offices into a two story office with enough space to fit everyone and any future hires. We’re excited to show off our brand new offices and we’re expecting the new offices to be done within the next few weeks! More news coming your way soon.
Apart from just the physical expansion, we’re also expanding our team. We’re looking for people in almost every department if you think you’re up for the challenge apply now to any of our open positions!
2. Tea Time is Sacred
As part of company culture and traditions the whole team always has lunch together. We sit on a large table, eat and discuss different topics daily. Lunch time usually includes a lot of laughter and people asking to pass the salt or hot sauce. However, the most sacred time of our day is tea time where we take turns in making green tea for the whole office. There’s always someone trying to up their game by bringing cookies or chocolates to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.
3. 65% of Our Team are Females
It’s commonly said that gaming is a male dominated industry, but this is actually a very big misconception. It might have been true six years ago but with females gamers on the rise, females only make up a small percentage of the industry specialists. That status quo doesn’t really apply to Tamatem since now females make up 65% of our team. So you can imagine how loud and girly lunch time has become!
4. We Built Our Own Arcade Machine
As a gaming company, it’s a given that all our employees are gamers. And what better way to satisfy long time gamers than having a full functioning Arcade machine with built-in games from the 90s and onwards!
5. We Play Football Once a Week
Every Tuesday our team gathers after work to play a friendly match of football however, we do sometimes alternate and play basketball even though it isn’t everyone’s favorite sport. Apart from our weekly tradition being purely for fun, it has become an activity for everyone to show their competitive side.
