Our Team

 

Our biggest motivation for founding Kopla was to create the dream company where we would like to work ourselves. We believe that when the focus is on building great teams and a supportive environment around them, it’s only a matter of time before success follows.

To us, nothing is more motivating than being surrounded by talented peers, working shoulder to shoulder on meaningful challenges. Many of us have a background at Rovio but we also have people from Redlynx, Frozenbyte and Backflip.
