Stewart Gove Incentive Games

Who are we?

We are a gamification specialist company based in Edinburgh that conceptualises and develops online games.

What do we do?

We licence these games to our clients (generally in the sports and gaming sectors) to reduce their customer acquisition costs, improve their customer engagement and increase retention levels.

The gaming software that we design and develop helps our clients engage and, therefore, better monetise their customers. The games are generally free-to-play and centred around live sports meaning they can be played in parallel whilst viewing the events.

Currently, our products are live with clients in the sports and gaming sectors and are already generating revenue; while others are in the process of being developed. We have an existing global footprint with products live across Africa, America, India, China, UK and Europe.

Incentive Games’ core values are:

  • Invest in Our Team;
  • Product Perfection;
  • Innovation Throughout;
  • Efficient, Continual Improvement; and
  • Honesty and Integrity.

And, our core aim is to be ‘more than a software supplier’.

What is it like to work for Incentive Games?

We are a young, exciting, and energetic company based in Edinburgh. Although the team is small, we have ambitions to be a leading games provider and have been gaining recognition nationally and abroad. We employ several graduates and give them the ability and freedom to flourish, grow and progress in their roles from the start.

We are looking for highly motivated and skilled developers and, as we grow, we will be looking for employees to fill roles in Finance, HR and Operations.

We have a goal oriented, but laid-back culture, where we value our workforce, encourage learning and also advancement at all levels.

We were the winners of Best Crowdfunded Business at the Sports Technology Awards 2019 and our CEO was the recipient of Service Industries’ Entrepreneur of the Year at the Great British Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2019.
