Krafton Inc., headquartered in Seongnam, is a South Korean video game holding company best known for PUBG. Following the phenomenal success of PUBG, which resulted in investment from Tencent Holdings as well as the expansion and acquisition of studios, Bluehole decided to form Krafton.
PUBG is one of the most successful, best-selling, and highest-grossing video games of all time. As of 2020, the game had sold over 70 million copies on PCs and consoles, meanwhile PUBG Mobile accumulated 1 billion downloads as per the stats of March 2021 and on mobile devices, it grossed over $4.3 billion as of December 2020.
Krafton Inc. plans to recruit 700 new highly skilled and seasoned workers this year. They discussed it in February in their ‘human resources oriented’ management strategy, which included the introduction of a competitive compensation system.
Since April, Krafton has opened the biggest recruiting opportunity ever with an international framework for securing excellent talents in the extension line.
The AI research team is always looking for new members to help make the game more enjoyable, incorporate innovations, and promote new business opportunities.
The research team will use deep learning technology to create AI Non-Player Characters (NPCs) and Virtual Influencers in the fields of text, voice, and image.
“We are not only strengthening the production potential of independent studios by hiring large-scale talents, but we are also pioneering new technical areas and growing into the global IP market to realize the vision of ‘masterpiece production’ in earnest,” said Kim Chang-Han.
The CEO of Krafton has the vision to do every possible thing to improve Krafton’s training program and work climate, to become a multinational business with the greatest competitiveness in the world.
