Big Viking Games acquires Gallop Labs team

By | Announcements, Recruiting, Tech | No Comments

Big Viking Games is proud to announce today our acquisition of Gallop Labs. After working closely with the Gallop team for many years, we’re excited to be officially welcoming them to the Big Viking team.

At Big Viking Games, we’re passionate about bringing smart people together to Make Fans. And Gallop brings with it a lot of smart people. Founded in Toronto as a data science and marketing automation company, Gallop was quickly recognized with the Facebook Mobile Innovation Award and was named one of Canada’s Most Innovative Companies at the 2014 Canadian Innovation Exchange.

Great games come from great data, and the thought-leadership that the Gallop team will bring to Big Viking Games will only serve to make our work better. We’re so thankful to everyone involved in the acquisition process, including the founders of Gallop, their investors and their Board of Directors, who should all be incredibly proud of the company they built. When Canadian startups are acquired by other Canadian companies, the entire ecosystem wins.

The Gallop team members have already moved into our Toronto office. We can’t wait to see what we can do together.
