Candy Crush Saga developer King opens over 160 jobs to grow staff count by 25%

Candy Crush Saga developer King.com is looking to raise its head-count by 25%, with the posting of over 160 new job roles at the firm.

It follows the launch of King.com's IPO, which debuted as one of the worst in recent history. The company's stock has drifted between $18 and $20 per share on the New York Stock Exchange since it went public.

The WallStreetJournal reports that some 165 jobs have now opened at King.com, spread across sites in Europe, North America and Asia.

Most roles are based in development, suggesting a push to create more new titles to follow in Candy Crush Saga's footsteps. Other roles concern engineering and design positions.
