GSVlabs Completes $7 Million Series B Financing Round, Names CEO To Lead Global Growth Strategy New Funding + CEO Announcement


PlayFab’s mission is to power the future of live games by providing developers and publishers with the best liveops platform in the industry. Game developers shouldn’t need to worry whether their servers can scale, or which of the ten SDKs they’re trying to use broke the build. With PlayFab, they don’t have to. We tell game developers, “you bring the fun, we’ll do the rest.”

PlayFab recently received Series A funding from Benchmark and Madrona Venture Group, so we’re about to enter a period of rapid expansion in both our team and our ambitions. New hires should expect to hit the ground running and make significant contributions from day one. We’re not the kind of start-up with a kegerator; we’re the kind where everyone is super productive and then goes home on time.

Our core values include:

  • Transparency
  • Performance
  • Alignment
  • Diversity
  • Ownership
  •  Humility

Or put another way: we believe in hiring really smart people and then giving them all the information and support they need to do their jobs well. We believe in asking forgiveness instead of permission, and we know we don’t always have the answer. Most of all, we believe in being a team and looking out for each other. Nothing’s more fun than celebrating each other’s success.

PlayFab’s main office is located in the heart of Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square and offers a good balance of bright, open-plan social space and focused, efficient workspace.
