About the interview
What should I wear for the interview?
We care about what you say, not what you wear. We are a casual environment that embraces individuality so it’s up to you how you want to create that first impression.
How do I prepare for my interview?
Our company loves to play games. We seek people who are passionate about games, are familiar with King games and have a genuine interest in our business. We understand that some interviews are arranged at very short notice, so we naturally make exceptions, but the key is to make sure you know our products well enough to have an informed opinion. You may also want to research and play our competitors games, search and read about the games industry, and look at Linkedin (where you can ‘follow’ us to get the latest updates).
Our interviews focus on capability, competency potential and cultural fit. You should look at the job description and be ready to provide examples to demonstrate your existing competence against the responsibilities of the role. If you don’t have the exact experience, consider describing the transferrable experience you can bring to King and how you can drive results. Cultural fit isn’t something you can prepare for, so don't panic as this is a two-way process that is evaluated during the complete interview process.
Who will I be interviewed by at King?
You may be interviewed by HR, the hiring managers, future colleagues or other business unit leaders or managers. If you are applying for a senior position you will be interviewed by two – four executives.
How long will the interview take?
An interview may range from 30 mins to 1.5 hours. You can expect to have up to two screening calls and up to six face-to-face (1-2-1) meetings.
What if I need to change my interview date?
If you need to reschedule an interview, please contact our HR team as soon as possible.
What are the next steps after a face-to-face interview?
After your initial interview, you will be given feedback. Depending on the role you are applying for, our HR Team will advise you on next steps.
Can I apply for other roles internally once I join?
Yes - we list all current job listings on our website and we communicate internally about new roles on a regular basis.
We operate a flexible and mobile workforce and seek to match employee desires and career motivations with our business workforce requirements. Job matching is an ongoing process and we encourage open and regular dialogue to facilitate great career development.
We also have a ‘Find a Gem’ referral programme where as an existing King employee, if you refer someone for a role and they are successful, you will receive 50,000SEK (approx. £4,500 / US$7,000).
Can I reapply for the same or other roles?
Yes, you are free to re-apply, and we'd advise that you demonstrate how you’ve closed the gap from the feedback you received from the pervious application process.
