The Story

More than two years ago, Newxel was approached by the client with a clear request to expand the current 14-member game development team in Ukraine and create a superior individual office in line with their corporate identity.

After an accurate analysis of all the offer details, the client had accepted a turnkey solution provided by Newxel. It included a branded separated office, which had everything necessary for the team’s successful work: working areas, recreation zones, kitchen, meeting rooms, etc. The demand and trust of the customer had contributed to the creation of a highly efficient offshore game development team.

Impressive successes, tangible results, and outstanding team productivity led to a rapid increase in the team, and that meant it was time to open a new larger office. And so the next chapter of our cooperation began… But we’ll talk about this further…

Now the team in Ukraine consisted of 30 people divided into 2 departments: Development and Art.

Key goals

To grow and scale up, through opening own game development studio in Ukraine with the help of an offshore service provider. An important aspect of this process was to create an absolutely independent team that will deliver superb results.

Newxel’s approach

Newxel made every effort to open a comfortable game development R&D office in Kyiv where real-time, free-to-play casual games are created. At the beginning of our cooperation, we prepared a separate office for the client’s game developers with their own access control system. The office space was designed in accordance with company identity to reinforce the feeling of being a part of the international company for employees in Kyiv.

The process was completely transparent and personally approved by the client. We had shown flexibility in all questions related to legal and finance operations and demonstrated a common desire to smoothly achieve the ultimate goal.

In 2020 the client decided to upgrade to a larger office. Well, that was entirely predictable for us, considering the rapid increase in the number of team members. Therefore, we organized new office space with a fresh and modern design in the shortest possible time. Highly productive office with branded open space, workplaces, adjustable desks, yoga and lounge zone with a PlayStation, own kitchen, an isolated meeting room, shower, and a hall offer employees a comfortable and efficient working atmosphere. Newxel team keeps supporting the office, handles legal and financial issues, is responsible for the broad scope of facilities management, food delivery, equipment procurement, and other vital back-office services for a smooth and efficient workflow.

A while back, we also started providing recruitment services to fulfill client’s hiring needs. We are very pleased that our cooperation is reaching a new level every year and value the client’s trust, and remain committed to providing the utmost levels of services related to the R&D center model.
