With an initial team of 10 people, Evolution Engineering began operating in the country in 2021 but quickly expanded and established itself as one of the best companies to work for in Portugal. In 2022, with the presence of the. Mayor of Lisbon, Dr. Carlos Moedas, Evolution officially opened a 3-storey building on Av. de 24 de Julho, which today houses a team of around 80 people from more than ten different nationalities and working in several different teams, including a frontend, backend, data and design teams.

Considered, in 2022, one of the best companies to work for by Exame magazine and ManpowerGroup, Evolution continued its expansion process, not only from the point of view of human resources but also related to new projects. It quickly went from being a support and maintenance hub to having teams dedicated to designing and developing new games.

In 2023, the Lisbon Hub is already a multidisciplinary team and a global reference characterized by creativity, diversity, and efficiency.
