Apart from the hard skills, a certain position might require, there are three key qualities that can make a big impression throughout the hiring process at Fanatee.

There is one common ground in all hiring journeys: this is the moment when we are looking to evaluate not only someone’s hard skills but most importantly, the passion, ambition, and enthusiasm to establish a career in the gaming industry and build successful products.
We are keen on welcoming talented, high potential people that share our vision and creating opportunities for the people we believe in so that they can reach their full potential working with us.
Attention to detail
Attention to detail is another trait that we particularly value on the job and oftentimes, it is well reflected on someone’s resume. Typographic mistakes for example might take away from a positive first impression.
At Fanatee, we have a passion for games and a mission to create high-quality, intelligent games, that are also viable products.

These are attributes that we highly value in any professional that is seeking to join the team. We are looking to collaborate with people that share the same vision, with love for what they do and a determination to produce high-quality, successful games.
