What do we expect from applicants?

Motivation, eagerness to learn, good English language skills, and enthusiasm for developing games.

Do I need to provide a cover letter?

It is optional. Also, check the application form first—there might already be some motivational questions. If there aren’t any, your cover letter will most often take the shape of an interview with a recruiter.

They usually last 6 months, with expectations of ones lasting 4 to 5 months.

How many internships can I apply for?

If you think that you can be a marketing expert, 3D artist, and software engineer all at once, sure, no limit there. But please, have reasoning prepared as to why you applied to each specific internship because you will only get hired for one of them.

Can I work remotely?

Occasionally within the agreement with a manager, yet live presence in the Berlin office is appreciated. This is because we believe in chemistry and synergy shared onsite when people work side by side.

When should I expect a reply?

You should get some sort of reply in up to 1 week after submitting your application. If you did not, check first whether our email did not get lost in your spam. If still nothing, feel free to ping us!
