Wargaming Forge International is a 3-month paid internship within a pioneer of the free-to-play gaming industry. Apply now to contribute to first-class, large-scale game titles while promoting them across the globe—and beyond as we collaborate with the International Space Station from time to time.

We are looking for someone with a passion for writing and video games with an expert command of English and knowledge of Russian. Our work is fast-paced but well-rewarding, and in this position, you can certainly network throughout Wargaming Minsk and our other offices worldwide. 

Your training will be in practice, working together with our team to produce great content. It will include both short- and long-form copy and tasks that have a quick turnaround and some requiring much more thought.

Excel in long reads. Rock in press releases. Advise & provide expertise in any English copy.

You will work closely with your mentor on providing well-structured copies for all titles, current and as yet unannounced, and help provide valuable insight for all concepts targeting English-speaking markets.

Requirements

To be considered for this internship, you need:

-   A degree in Russian, journalism or a related field or 1+ years’ experience working in the games industry (not necessarily copywriting-related)

-   Expert or native level of English and advanced level of Russian

-   A passion for the video games industry

-   Basic knowledge of current Wargaming products

-   To have completed both the Content Writing test tasks provided by the Creative Agency

Test Tasks

There are two test tasks: one in Russian and one in English.

The test task in Russian requires you to localize the text into English. We are not looking for a word-for-word translation, so you have the flexibility to adjust the text as you wish. However, the key messages must remain.

The test task in English needs you to create a press release from scratch that will be sent out by our Global PR team. The description contains all the necessary information you need to create the text, but the format (other than title and subtitle) is up to you.

Come and benefit

While on your internship, you will get all the benefits as if you were an officially employee of Wargaming Minsk (which has just won the Belarusian Best Employer Award for the 3rd time in a row). This includes a relocation bonus, full assistance on registration in Belarus, and covering the cost of the visa, tickets and insurance.

Why Minsk?

Forget your thoughts of gray buildings and permanent snow, Minsk is an amazing city that is open, friendly and welcoming to those who visit. Minsk is constantly growing its reputation in its booming IT industry, progressively known as the “Silicon Valley of Europe”. The capital of Belarus offers culture and life for both those who want a quiet life and those who want to paint the town red.

A First-Hand Experience
"I relocated from Paris to Minsk and with the help of the team, all the complicated documents — such as my work visa — were sorted for me. Everything was made that bit easier as the team organized my flights and sorted me out with a corporate flat.
By working here, you’ll get to meet experts in different fields, expand your horizons — both in and outside of work — and leave your mark on our world-renowned games. Being part of Wargaming Minsk is great as no day is the same and we all pitch together to tackle tasks of varying complexity."
