    Localization Tester () Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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

    Live Tester Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I can't remember the exact date I applied for the job through a 3rd party website, but once Goodgame contacted me via e-mail about the position, the process for interview times and dates was quick. Obviously being in the UK and not in Hamburg, I was interviewed via phone at first towards the end of September, and again via Skype on October 8th. The contact on the emails was clear and concise, and both interviews were friendly and relaxed compared to some I've had! Once I finished the Skype interview on the Wednesday, I was contacted the day after regarding an offer, extremely quick!

    Interview Questions
    • For myself, the most difficult was when asked about what I think would occur on a day to day basis in the job role. Coming from no previous experience with a games company, obviously I could only give an opinion on what I thought. The interviewers were both friendly and took time to let me know where I was right and wrong, letting me know more about the role (to make sure I want it and what I'd be getting in to).   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Goodgame Studios.

    Interview Details

    After a few mails from/to goodgame asking me about myself and if could be interested in the position, i make a test for them (very easy i think), i´have the opportunity to take a nice and pleasant skype interview with them. I was very nervous because it was mi first skype english interview (as not habitual nor native english, my proficency in such language is not as good as i wan to) but i felt good and they ve very kind about it. They ask mi about my background and specifically some aspects related to some key points of the position, beside some technical questions. The interview last for about 20-25 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • Well, despite the fact that i´ve prepared other question ( more human recourses way i think now), they were kind and never felt that the questions was hard, difficult or something similar, just clear an easy to response ( i think). Maybe i felt that i cant explain as well as i wanted to do, because nervous mainly, but was my fault then.   View Answer

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Goodgame Studios in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was just right. I was contacted through LinkedIn and we had some remote contact via email. There were some communication delays at first but when we got the pace it was really good. I had to complete a technical task and finally we had a call with a formal interview and a technical interview. They were really friendly in the interview and patient as I was nervous and the interview's language wasn't my main language; there were no pressure. They marked the appointments with the correct anticipation for everything. I had an offer just one day after the interview.
