An Insider's view of Mythical Games

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

One we have now is we are building a whole bidding engine from scratch for the marketplace and addressing non-instant blockchain finalization timelines and support for different payment methods and currencies. The possibilities are endless and we iterate daily on the architecture to ensure we deliver a great solution fast. So much to learn!


Sr. Technical Product Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I strive to ask my teams to reevaluate the boundaries they encounter in their work, whether externally or self-imposed. Boundaries are important for creative focused work, but where you place them and what they define, is critical to exceeding what you imagine is possible.


Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer

What are some social events your company does?

Pub trivia night is always a blast and a great way for team members working across several states to better know each other. There’s always an accompanying costume theme and some folks get really into it. It’s always fun to see how creative people get! Mythical also threw a pretty great Zoom holiday party with magic, games, and cocktail lessons!
