    Player Experience Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Kabam (London, England).

    Interview

    Primarily, I had to complete a couple of forms to test my competence for the role. After that, I had an interview through Skype with one of the managers from the office I applied for. The interview lasted for about 45 minutes and consisted of many different questions about my motivation, my experience in the industry and why I chose Kabam. It was carried on in English and my native language, to check my proficiency in both. After that first interview, I had a second shorter interview with a Senior manager who introduced himself, talked about the company and explained a bit more about the role. My third and last interview was with the Leads of the project who wanted to introduce themselves, to provide additional information about the role and to ensure that I had all the information about the role I applied for.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the questions was: what would your previous manager would say if he run into you today and knew that you had been offered a job with us.   Answer Question

    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.
