    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at King (London, England, England)

    Interview

    Pleasant experience with very friendly members of the team. There were 6 separate interviews each assessing skillsets and cultural fit for the business, as well as attributing experience to the company values.

    Overall, the environment and atmosphere was very welcoming and each interviewer in the process made the experience a comfortable one, which was a key factor in accepting the role.

"Something everyone has is internalized biases, right? I call it the developer bias because you can understand it and you can play it, so you think everyone can play and everyone will understand it. It’s the same with ability bias. Since you have no problems playing the game, you think, oh, this won't present a problem to anyone else” - Emilio Jéldrez, Senior UX Designer at King
