Working at Nintendo

Start your career at Nintendo!

Nintendo is quite simply a special company, and special people have made us what we are with their commitment, talents, creativity and professionalism. We aim to create an environment in which all employees can fully demonstrate their individual strengths and realise their maximum potential.

Company Culture

At Nintendo, we bring together employees with a wide range of characteristics and work together towards a common goal. Providing our employees with a working environment that empowers them is of paramount importance. In addition, it is critical that we, as a global corporation, foster awareness of our social responsibilities within our employees.

Our CEO, Mr. Koji Miyake, describes the work philosophy at Nintendo of Europe with these three concepts:

One of Nintendo's strong points is that we are a team of individuals who independently create new value. It’s important that each individual thinks and acts for themselves. Our employees take the initiative and work diligently according to their beliefs.

Nintendo has faced the greatest changes in its business environment in the past several decades, and we cannot rely on past success. Employees must have a high awareness of their role as stakeholders in responding to changes. As a company we ask all employees to challenge themselves in their roles, every day.

Collaboration is essential in achieving our goals. Nintendo comprises many individuals with diverse values working in a range of job categories, who work together toward a shared goal. Collaboration doesn’t necessarily mean there aren’t conflicting ideas; the primary objective of collaboration is working together to achieve results that cannot be achieved by any individual alone. It’s important to think things over by yourself, as doing so ensures effective collaboration because you’re better able to communicate your views or ideas. Nintendo needs to be made up of individuals who make continual efforts to collaborate effectively.

European Headquarters

Nintendo of Europe's offices are based in the city of Frankfurt am Main, a bustling metropolis in the state of Hesse, in Germany.

Frankfurt is a global hub for business, commerce, culture and tourism, and its airport is one of the world’s busiest! The beautiful river Main runs through the centre of the city, which includes areas of classic old town architecture, sandwiched with the modern buildings of its famous ‘Mainhattan’ skyline.

Nintendo of Europe's offices can be found in a quiet area on the outskirts of the city, offering a pleasant, relaxing location and workspace.

Diversity at Nintendo

Nintendo is an equal-opportunities employer, and everyone is welcome in the Nintendo family regardless of gender, ethnicity, ableness, or sexual orientation. There’s room for everyone.
