A slice of the action

Where it is at

We span the globe, in a very local way. We trust in what we share and we are intrigued by our differences. While strongly influenced by our history and all that it has taught us, what defines us most is each and every individual with us here today. Continuing to learn and make good friends ensures that we can continue to enjoy our journey, wherever it may take us.

This is where and who we are.

Gothenburg

Creative individuals from across the world join forces at our Gothenburg office, tenaciously exploring the unknown. Located at the city’s main street Avenyn, here we are smack in the middle of everything. Välkommen till Götet!

Barcelona

While 2,000 kilometers apart, the team in Barcelona works closely and seamlessly with our Gothenburg outfit, as one. Here, at the periphery of the Sant Martí district, we are perfectly positioned to charter the manana, the future. Bienvenido a Barna!

Hardly working

Because we can’t be working hard all the time. While many of us also develop software as a hobby, that is not the only thing we enjoy doing in our spare time, as evidenced by a few of our colleagues below. With everything from role playing games to painting covered, you are sure to find someone with similar interests, or perhaps even someone to inspire you to take up something you would have otherwise never considered.

Brute force testing is no laughing matter.
Adam and Peter – Burly brothers, developers.
Scrum dreaming; planning to make an impact.
Mandis – American football player, developer.
Bespoke soft wear, a product of craftmanship.
Jonas – Tailor, COO.

History

Founded in 2004 by a quartet who had prior been developing software for online gaming, Combination’s first mission was to introduce and leverage the server-based model for land-based casinos for the purpose of exploiting synergies vis-à-vis online casinos.

 

Slot machines in America

With strict regulations dictating that the physical gaming machine “client” be the master, this posed some challenges. But of course also opportunities, like moving away from manual setup and configuration, which traditionally required actual physical presence at every machine. We would instead make software distribution and configuration a remote batch operation with all the benefits that entails. During this journey we also notably built a bespoke game engine that catered to the unique demands of the domain – such as performance, regulatory and player experience. The rigorous requirements imposed by needing to obtain Nevada compliance added many challenges to this project, and favoured a “measure twice, cut once” approach to our embedded software (and hardware).

 

Sportsbook

Transitioning to Sportsbook, with its cloud native, high load environment basically meant doing a complete 180, in terms of applied skillset and approach. With our MVP-oriented, data-driven, fail fast approach and lending itself well to framework-laden “borrowing”, it represented a transition to pretty much a polar opposite software development methodology. This also gave us the opportunity to prove to ourselves what we believed in – that our perhaps greatest strength is our ability to tackle any challenges and adapt to new situations.

The founders are still very active in the company. And we are still working together with the biggest players in the industry, delivering vertical technology solutions and doing R&D. Our customers are large multinationals, and our collaborations span across every continent. Nevertheless, we remain a small and nimble outfit – which works well for responding to change and which we believe will carry us forward on both current and future challenges.
