    Localization Tester () Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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

After that I had a phone interview with human resources and later I had to take an online test with a lot of theoretical questions about programming in general and game programming and just a few questions where I had to write some lines of code. The third part of the process was going to Hamburg for face to face interview.

    Localization Tester Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Goodgame Studios in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online via Goodgame Studios' website on a Friday and immediately received a confirmation email about my application being processed. The following Monday I was contacted by HR and was asked to give additional information such as earliest start date and salary requirements. Then HR scheduled a test for me on Friday of the same week. The test consisted in a few strings which had to be translated, and a linguistic bug that had to be identified and reported. The test should not be a problem if you already have previous experience in Localization QA.

    Two weeks later HR recontated me to schedule a date and time for a Skype interview. The interview lasted about 45 minutes and was conducted by 2 members of HR and 1 Localization Manager. The interviewers were professional yet friendly and asked me questions related to my previous professional experiences, why I want to work for Goodgame Studios or what is expected of a Localization Tester. They also gave me a lot of information about the company and kindly answered all the questions I had prepared. It was a nice talk.

    6 days after the interview, I was offered a position which I accepted.

    Overall, the whole process was very smooth, fast and efficient. And I think that the thing I appreciate the most about this hiring process is that my experience as well as my personality were both valued. Definitely a very positive experience!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Goodgame Studios in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I used the online form at Goodgame Studios website to apply for the job. I was contacted after 10 days and was asked to send some extra documents to the recruiter. After a few days I was contacted and took a online test. The test was not very hard but you have to finish under 2 hours so I had to think very quickly about the 5 or 6 last questions. In a few more days I was contacted for a personal interview. The recruiters let me reschedule the original interview date to fit my needs which i appreciated. The interview was professional and the interviewers were well prepared (they saw my portfolio and even installed some games from it). The decision about hiring me came after 2-3 work days.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Goodgame Studios in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found out about the company over a friend of mine. He knew I was all about Germany and said that I should go for it. A couple days later, after I applied, I received an answer with a few basic questions and some minor requirements in terms of documents since I applied outside EU.

    Next step was to undergo a test that was limited by time. It wasn't hard, but the time frame was there to make it harder.

    After receiving a positive answer we scheduled a video interview. Nothing sounded difficult or unexpected. Questions regarding certain situations with colleges were interesting. It was nothing that I came across in my career so it was a bit of a "what if" scenario. Putting yourself into perspective, so to say. Conversation was very relaxed, casual but yet professional. I had a very positive experience and thoughts about the people I talked to.

    Interview Questions
    • Not difficult or unexpected, but just a questions related to situations I never experienced.   Answer Question

    Junior Customer Service Representative (Arabic) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Goodgame Studios in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first applied for the position through the company's career portal. After a while, I was contacted by an HR representative with inquiries about my suitability for the position and willingness to relocate. After my replies were processed, I was put in touch with the HR officer responsible for the filling of the specific position, who was extremely helpful in clarifying all of my initial inquiries, and reviewed my application package extremely quickly.

    Within a few days time I was contacted with a date for the preliminary phone interview. All the questions during the phone interview were very clear and to the point, ensuring to encompass the exact reach of the position I applied for. After the interviewer's questions had finished, I was given plenty of time to inquire about all the things I might have been unclear about. Overall the phone interview was very pleasant and engaging. Within hours of the phone interview, I was contacted by the initial HR representative via phone and informed I had made the cut for the secondary interview over Skype and was given a skills-based test. The Skype interview was detailed but felt more like a friendly business meeting wherein both sides came to understand each others' interests, and my suitability for the position was evaluated. This interview was administered by the HR officer and the hiring manager, both being extremely engaging and willing to answer any questions.

    By far, this was one of the most pleasing interviewing processes I have undertaken.
