Why work at Startselect?

Why apply?

Good question! Many of our employees once chose to work for us because of the industry in which we operate. The game industry and therefore our products and services appeal to many people. What is also decisive is the challenge that awaits them. You don't just end up in a bed that's ready to go, there is a lot that can still be built up or improved. That triggers people who love pioneering and who can create something beautiful from their specialism. Often, the vacancy, our ambitions and the growth potential of our company fit in well with the wishes and ambitions someone has for his/her next career step.

What makes Startselect unique?

We are more down-to-earth than a hip start-up, but more relaxed than a tight corporate. With about 40 employees, we are still a relatively small company that is developing, while the turnover and scope of our business is large.

What is the best about working at Startselect?

Helping to build and make an impact. The feeling that you can really contribute to the growth and success of the organisation. Achieving something every day that wasn't there yesterday, continuing to develop and in the meantime working together towards an ambitious company goal.

What our employees value most is the freedom and flexibility they are given. You get the freedom to develop and implement your own ideas and projects. You decide how you do your work and how you organise it, as long as the end result is good and the goals are achieved. And, of course, the great colleagues, pleasant and informal working atmosphere and the team spirit within our teams!

When is there not fit for me at Startselect?

Working at Startselect is not for everyone and that is okay. There are many reasons to start with us, but just as many reasons not to. You will probably not be happy with us if you have a strong need for structure, rules and stability. If you like to do things 'because that is how we always do them'. If you don't feel comfortable with the fact that the future of the company is also in your hands. If you work best within a strong hierarchy or like to come to work dressed in a suit. If you prefer to start the first year quietly, with not too much responsibility or big projects. If you find it difficult to show initiative and make things open for discussion. If you actually like the fact that your project and improvement plan first has to pass through three management layers before you can get to work. And if you don't like it that your contribution and work are noticed.
