Goodgame Studios breaks the 1000 employee mark

Goodgame Studios, the specialist in free to play mobile and browser games, welcomed the thousandth employee into its ranks today. Goodgame Studios is the largest game software developer in Germany in terms of employees.

It has grown from a start-up to a major enterprise in only five short years. At the end of 2013, the total number of employees at the company’s headquarters in Hamburg and at the subsidiaries in Tokyo and Seoul still barely exceeded 600. At the beginning of this month alone, 87 new employees started an exciting new job here. We currently have people from over 50 nations working at Goodgame Studios, and several hundred positions are still open for recruitment.

Dr. Christian Wawrzinek, the COO and cofounder of Goodgame Studios, considers this ambitious growth an essential component of the company’s strategy: “We’re convinced that this targeted increase in staff is necessary for the lasting and sustainable growth of the company. Despite the large number of new employees, we have extremely rigorous standards when selecting staff and only hire around 1.5% of all applicants. We also search for the best talent all around the globe in order to meet our high demand.”

Goodgame Studios looks for this talent in all areas. At the moment, mobile client developers and online marketers are especially in demand. The HR department also attaches great importance to hiring experienced employees who can make a decisive impact on their departments with the knowledge they contribute. The recruiters however, don’t just look for technical expertise and potential for development. The candidates also have to be a good fit in their teams. This is because a pleasant working atmosphere, characterized by respect and flat hierarchies, has been at the core of the game developer’s success.
