    UI Designer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Goodgame Studios in December 2014.

    Interview

    Fairly quick and painless, there was a lull over the holidays (as expected) but we were in constant communication otherwise. After initial discussions, took a design test followed up by a Skype interview that was quite nice. The design test could have been a bit more tailored to the job description, but I felt as if it was the right amount of work.

    Localization Tester () Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goodgame Studios in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through their website and a member of HR contacted me that very same day, asking me to send him some of my certificates and diplomas. Afterwards, I took a test to prove my skills as localization tester. The test was not complicated, I had to translate a few strings of text and report some bugs.

    We arranged a Skype interview one week later, with another member of HR and a member of the Localization department. They gave me some useful information, the interview itself was very smooth, I did not feel pressured at any moment and lasted a bit less than half an hour. The questions were mostly about my academic background and my interest in deciding to be a localization tester and career aspirations. I was accepted just the next day after the interview.

    Communication was always smooth between HR members and I. I could tell from the job interview that the company is very professional while keeping a relaxed work environment at any time, something I appreciate a lot.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were pretty much expected. If I had to say one, I would probably say if I had found any localization bugs in a game of the company.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Goodgame Studios.

    Interview

    Very slow process that took months.

    First I was contacted by one of their HR staff to apply for a position and I gladly said yes.
    After that they reviewed my profile, salary expectations and decided to send me a test.

    The test required 8 hours to complete and it was timed. The test wasn't easy. And the time pressure didn't help. I invested a well deserved Saturday to complete the test.

    After delivering the test, time passed. I asked the HR person who was assigned to me several times if they finally reviewed my test. That person failed to reply and they eventually assigned another HR representative.

    Eventually, after some months passed I got a test review that I apparently failed. When I asked for feedback they didn't gave me any.

    Honestly this is very disrespectful to people that apply to your company. If I did a test of 8 hours to prove my knowledge, the least I expect is to have a decent feedback meeting so I understand why the negative result.

    I know competitors that do that and it is a rewarding experience.

    considering how bad was the process, I believe that what really happened is that they lost my application and told me that I failed without even reviewing the test.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Goodgame Studios.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by Goodgame's HR who noticed I could be a good fit for their Data Science team. After a preliminary call with HR I was invited to share my resume and undertake a brief intelligence test and a longer core competency test (R skills, excel skills). Having passed these, I then underwent a couple of calls with the data science lead + others to ask a range of high level questions about what I do, what I would like to do, with some specific drill-down into examples of the kind of projects I did lately. I also submitted a case study for them to analyse. After some days of consideration, an offer was made to join their data science team.

    Interview Questions

    • What distinguishes a data scientist from a data analyst? What motivates/de-motivates you? How do you tell if a regression model has been overfit?

      The interviews ranged from straightforward to suddenly tricky, but most of all, the process had many steps and took some months, so patience is a good trait for applicants!
       
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Goodgame asked me to submit a salary consideration, which I did. They came reasonably close to the offer and I accepted without further negotiation, being very excited by the role at this point.
