Mission: Have Fun, Making Fun
I have been working at Gamesys full-time (More than 3 years)
They really focus on real 2D art. No 3D and no photo bashing. They take pride in art and doing themes and ideas that many of the other companies will not do. In doing so, it takes them out of the same old same old slot stuff. You the Artist can pitch game theme and designs.
To many organizing software programs. Around 4-5 programs plus 2 emails one employee has to have.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Gamesys (London, England (UK)).
1 telephone interview with HR
2 in-person interviews with Team Manager and Senior Designers.
Interviews were relaxed and informal
During the second interview, office was shown, and some people from the several teams introduced
Went through portfolio, skills and tools.
Whole process took less than 2 weeks.
