    Postmortem: Dawn of Steel one year on

    People It's often said in the world of free-to-play development that launching a game is the beginning, not the end. These aren't boxed products released onto shop shelves, never to be worked on again. These are games-as-a-service that require constant operation and updating, often over a period of several years.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Kabam (Austin, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    If you don't clique from the get go there's no point. Went in for an interview and HR lady didn't mention you will be assigned with 5 other candidates and talked to other current employees to gauge your fit with the company. They push their "Success" with one lucky title.
