The job advert accidentally emphasizes the need for someone with great English grammar skills who can empathise with the community! :P

 

 

 Passion for PC/video games and the ability to understand and emphasize with the unique needs and passions of our player community

 

 

 

Edit - they changed it to the American spelling of empathise :P

I'm still awaiting a response. Even after taking in consideration the possible backlog because of Gamescom (where I went with the Tweakers Express!), it's still a long time.

Your resume has been forwarded to the appropriate hiring manager. If your background and experience is a fit with the requirements of the position, you will be contacted for an interview.

I'll check with our HR team to see if there is any reason for the delay. Based on your e-mail title I can advise you that the only "work from home" roles we have is forum moderation.

Thank you for your trouble. I was hoping that a global dispersed company as Wargaming, not being stuck to offices (for everyday work) was part of the culture.

I know a Dutch translator for WoT who lives in Pay-Bas, so there's more than you may know of :)

What would give you that idea?  I can't think of any major games company where their core staff work from home, especially at a customer service level.  For example major games companies based in Europe have their core staff based in the following cities:

 

Blizzard = Versailles and Cork

Riot = Dublin 

EA = Galway

Ubisoft = Newcastle

Paradox = Sweden

 

For our fully supported languages in Europe (German, French, Czech, Polish, Spanish, Turkish. English) we have Customer Service agents, Content and localization Editors, along with Community Teams all based in our regional offices. I'm not quite sure what you're trying to get at with the message about translators. You'll find that roles like that aren't advertised on our corporate side as it's more of a freelance role.

Ah, the city of Sweden. Who hasn't heard of it...

 

Incidentally, Paradox hails from a country also called Sweden.

 

*sorry, could not resist*

Yes, I asked for it to be changed, as I'm a language pedant. Thank you for pointing it out. :great:

 

Unfortunately for me as a British English fanatic, we use US English on that site (and I think possibly all our English language sites).

Well I can tell you that I have worked with major clients that are at least if not bigger than WG and have done so either from home either the Timisoara office. Ive even work on a project from Barcelona so working from home should not be a big deal.

Did you guys also ended up in Paris because of applications like those? Just curious.

 

Yes, it was not something I had originally planned, that's for sure! :)

It would be nice to work for WG, even if I disagree with some of their decisions.

Let me know if you need a dev manager :).  I wouldn't mind living in Paris for a bit, though Prague would be nicer :)

Taken a look at the roles and can't help but notice a complete lack of CG/specialist/FX roles outside of the St.Petersburg office. Is this by design or am I just super late to the game? :look:

Dev studio is in St Peter's'g, while the regional offices "just" handle server communities and running the servers and tech support for their respective regions (or at least that's how I know)
