There was an office I walked into and promptly seated. Then I was invited into a managers office where the interview began. He asked basic questions about business strategy and case studies. I gave him my advice on the game and the direction of the future gaming market. Pretty easy interview.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Jagex.
A telephone interview organised at short notice after hearing nothing for weeks followed by a rather bland and generic in person interview. With people who appeared as if they did not want to be there. There were also a series of tests which were cobbled together from other departments, including an on paper C++ test and a general QA test.

The pre-interview is handled entirely by Jagex's HR department through emails. The first step is submit your CV and if it passes a review you are asked to complete a timed, online test covering subjects such as pseudocode, game design and general attitude. Those who pass this test are invited to a full day trial at Jagex's Cambridge office. The trial is divided into 2 parts - a coding section and a design section, with interviews thrown in at various points along the course of the day.
