In 2021, young developers and designers can apply to the MGA Games Academy to boost their professional experience and improve their career prospects.
Not to be confused with the Malta Gaming Authority, MGA Games is a software provider and development studio hailing from Spain and operating in the iGaming industry. New for 2021, the company has established the MGA Games Academy as a means of fostering the development of young people who want to pursue careers in software design and development.
In Spain, MGA Games employs a staff of 50 personnel who have been trained to develop and release iGaming content in-house. After initially releasing content for the Spanish marketplace, the company has since expanded to provide games to a range of international markets. Moving forward, the company wants to expand the workforce with young talent that can sustain operations for years to come.
It has been revealed that the MGA Games Academy has already attracted eight students, who consist of four programmers and four graphic designers. Right now, the team is receiving in-house training from the veterans of MGA Games, who are preparing the youngsters to contribute years from now within the company or elsewhere in the industry.
Ultimately, MGA Games attracts and retain talent through this initiative and this support the recruiting process for the company. Participants in the scheme can stand to benefit by undergoing a work placement to provide them with professional experience to support their technical learning.
