New Year, New Team, New York!
Zynga is taking a bite out of the big apple this afternoon with a new addition to the team – independent game developer Area/Code! Based in New York City, Area/Code boasts a strong and creative team with a proven track record of hit social games on Facebook and mobile devices, most recently including CSI: Crime City with Ubisoft, Parking Wars and Drop7 for the iPhone. We recognize great talent, and Area/Code shares our passion for building lasting games that bring family and friends together for fun.
This announcement marks the opening of Zynga New York –with Frank Lantz serving as Creative Director and Demetri Detsaridis assuming role of the General Manager of the studio. Frank has two decades of experience working on game titles for numerous companies including Cartoon Network, Lifetime TV, VH1 and Lego and Demetri has a history of game development by co-founding Massively Mobile, a London-based studio.
We’re growing at a rapid speed, and by us gaining a stronger foothold in the East Coast – means we need more powerful minds to join our team!
