Due to recent changes in the way Linkedin displays hiring information we have have changed the format of our weekly new hires posts. Companies who want their new hires included in the post must contact us directly at mail (at) insidesocialgames (dot) com.

Hiring in the social games sector was up this week with 13 new hires overall between three companies. Wooga reported the most activity with eight new hires. There were no new high profile hires to report this week.
