New Hires In Social Gaming: Digital Chocolate, Kabam, Playdom, & More

It’s a slow week in terms of social gaming hires, according to data from LinkedIn. That said, the lull isn’t entirely unexpected after last week’s boom. Of the top social companies, only four showed any new activity. Even then, two were mere internal changes, while the others’ hires were of a singular nature. In fact, even the colossal Zynga has remained quiet this time around — again, at least according to data visible on LinkedIn.

Nevertheless, if your company is bringing on new people or doing a notable promotion, please let us know. Email editor (at) insidesocialgames (dot) com, and we’ll get it into this or next week’s post.

As for people who are hiring, be sure to check out our Inside Network Job Board.

Here’s this week’s list:

  • Joni Suvanto— Though not a new hire, Suvanto represents the only activity within Digital Chocolate as he moves up from Junior Game Designer to Game Designer.


  • Steven Silver — Silver marks Kabam’s single hire this week as he joins the team as their newest QA Analyst. Previously, he was a QA Compatibility Technician at Gazillion Entertainment.



  • Jared Rea — The last of the new hires this week is Rea who joins RockYou! as a new Community Advocate. Before this, Rea was a Marketing Manager for Playspan.
