Nice to meet you…

Headquartered in Utrecht, The Netherlands, we’ve recently opened offices in Orange County, California, with the goal to further strengthen the partnership with our growing client base in the US. 5CA offers a fast-paced, dynamic workplace where every day is different and developments take place over the course of days, not months. 5CA’s culture is shaped by a young and talented workforce hailing from all corners of the globe with a thirst for new and exciting technology and games as the binding factor. The 5CA workforce is a community of gamers, techies, and geeks.
