We shape Growth


StrideQuest for Game Studios.

Talent acquisition is a difficult game to play.

StrideQuest helps you navigate a crowded field of recruitment and applicants, combining our knowledge and game industry network with your highly specific needs.

We snipe for the best fit, recruiting only the best of class, and only offering the top-3 candidates for a position, saving you valuable time and energy.

People over numbers

Talent acquisition is about meaningful connections, never about numbers. This is why we invest in people all the time. Not only by screening candidates for you, but also by understanding your company, company culture, and studio needs, to find out in detail what it is you and the candidate look for.

StrideQuest is the extension of your talent acquisition team.

Shaping entire teams

StrideQuest helps you build the best teams, using a global network of local recruiters to know who’s who in your neighborhood. This approach yields strong teams, and helps companies scale up fast when necessary.

Co-op over solo play

Recruitment services are about partnerships in the co-op sense of the word: you won’t achieve much if you don’t play for the same goals and awards. In our book, partnerships are “for better or worse.” Either we succeed together, or we won’t.

Working as partners also means not slapping our fees on you until you are satisfied with our work. Studios pay 50% of our fee when a position is filled, and the remaining part only when the new staff member is a full new hire.
