A bit about the role/company: 

$100bn was spent on in-game items last year. $0 went to players. We believe that players should be rewarded for the valuable time and money they choose to invest in games. At Immutable, we are returning true ownership to players by building games where they are free to buy, sell, and trade their hard-earned in-game items. 

Immutable has built Gods Unchained, which is a complex, multilayered strategic game that allows users the ability to build strategic decks and play those against other players in a variety of game modes.
