Turbine is a pioneering developer and operator of online entertainment, with breakthroughs in free-to-play gaming.
Founded in 1994, we've been developing acclaimed games for over 20 years.
Our success throughout the years is based on our three core values representing the principles and beliefs that have guided our company:
BY OUR FANS:
I have been working at Turbine full-time (More than a year)
Great environment, with a lot of creative minds and opportunities for pursuing interests within the Game Industry.
There aren't a lot, but the few issues stand out. It can be difficult to navigate your career due to a lack of a commercial success since the MMO days, and too many poor judgement calls from previous management have made the company feel like a sinking ship. The corporate entity of WB Games can feel too distant and will make decisions for us that aren't in the best interest of company and individual growth. The studio itself really is a good place with good people, ask questions and everyone are more than happy to help. You'll need to do a lot on your own to get the attention you'd like and to show you're ready for more responsibility.
Advice to Management
I believe that we need to take more risks in future game development. WB is known to follow trends in industry instead of creating them. It would be nice to focus on innovation for a change!
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Turbine (Needham, MA) in April 2016.
I spoke on the phone with the head of the email marketing program at Turbine first. It was a good conversation and he was quite informative about the job. I worked with an HR person to schedule a in-person interview. I went in a week later. Turbine is a cool and relaxed place; I felt comfortable. I met with individuals three times and I met with two groups of two. They were friendly and helpful and we had some good conversations about a variety of topics.
