I’m joining Zynga Mobile!

Category: AndEngine,ZyngaNicolas Gramlich @ 08:34

Hello Community,

I’m very excited to announce that I am joining the Zynga Mobile team!

Zynga has long been an advocate of the open source community. For example, the key contributors behind cocos2D recently joined Zynga, and I’m proud to join in this tradition.

Rest assured that I will continue to support and contribute to the AndEngine open source project and I will continue to operate the blog and the forums. AndEngine will remain 100% free and open source!

Zynga is growing at a rapid speed and is always looking for powerful minds to join their team. If you are interested in joining a smart, creative company with a passion for taking on new challenges (in SF or in one of Zynga’s other offices), click here for a list of opportunities.

Best regards,
Nicolas Gramlich

    Congrats Nicolas!

    Will you be working on AndEngine as well? Will it remain free to download or Zynga is thinking on Acquiring it and then charging us :(

    • Nicolas Gramlich says:

      As stated above, it will remain 100% free. :)

        So you definitely have a clause in your terms of employment that allows you to work on these things without giving all IP and copyright ownership to Zynga?

        The default employment contracts all have a “everything you do during your term of employment belongs to us”. Note: during term of employment, not only on company time!

        Check your contract and just make sure you’re not signing away some rights you didn’t want to, I’m sure Zynga will happily cross out those bits.

        Congratulations BTW, I hope you’ll be very happy working there.

    Congrats! Do you expect the terms of the open source license to change? Did Zynga also get ownership of the AndEngine code, maybe in a dual license model? Thanks for clarifying and congrats again.
