By understanding user behavior, the platform optimizes experiences and keeps players engaged for longer sessions.

Gamelight has managed to deliver high-quality users to major mobile game publishers worldwide consistently. Currently established in 11 countries in North America, Europe, and Asia, Gamelight stands as the largest game recommendation platform in the world.

The company also owes its growth to its varied and dynamic team, scattered across 12 locations globally.
