We are Germany's leading developer and publisher of mobile and online games and we are truly good at what we do. We also don't keep any of that knowledge from you – we embrace open information sharing to help our people be on top of their game. Additionally, we offer numerous training and development opportunities to our colleagues from every department, starting from the probation period.
We don't just offer a work-life balance. We aspire to make your time at InnoGames feel like life too. Here's a sneak peek at what we have:
Having fair play as one of our core values, we are devoted to rewarding everyone at InnoGames justly. We have unified salary grids in place for various seniorities across a total of nine career models, and we compare them with the market regularly to ensure competitive compensation. You can find a complete overview of our salary grids here.
You can do an apprenticeship in the field of IT, Design, and Marketing.
The apprenticeship starts in August and takes around 3 years to complete. In addition to tons of learning and training opportunities, we offer an above average salary starting from 1270 EUR/month. After successful completion of the program, we would like to offer you a Junior position.
Interns are welcome!
We regularly offer internship positions that can help you get practical experience in HR, Engineering, Marketing, and other departments at InnoGames with a duration of at least 6 months in full-time (40h/week).
Unfortunately, due to limited capacities, we cannot offer school internships.
Want to gain some real-world experience during your study?
You can work for 20h/week as a Working Student in departments such as Community Management, Analytics, HR, and more. An important condition: working students must be enrolled in the university.
Would like to study and gain some practical experience at the same time?
With our InnoStudent programs InnoBachelor and InnoMaster, we are offering an attractive university package as well as an excellent on-the-job training. Choose between two tracks: DEV for tech careers and BIZ for business related studies. The duration of each program is approx. 3 years.
Taking some of your relocation to-dos on ourselves, we hope you'll have more time to explore and fall in love with your new home — diverse, laid-back, fun, comfy, and stunning Hamburg.

SHOULD MY APPLICATION BE IN ENGLISH OR IN GERMAN?

Speaking German is not required at InnoGames unless otherwise mentioned in the job description (e.g., for apprenticeships since the vocational school and the final exam are conducted in German). We also offer German and English language courses for our employees (and their spouses) on a voluntary basis.
CAN I APPLY FOR SEVERAL JOBS AT THE SAME TIME?
You have the opportunity to apply for several roles. Still, we kindly ask you to self-reflect on available opportunities first and apply only for those jobs that suit both your expertise and your expectations.
Our Talent Acquisition Managers will evaluate your profile having all our open positions in mind. If you are a great fit for a role, you did not apply for, we will inform you.
IF I RECEIVE A REJECTION, CAN I STILL APPLY FOR A DIFFERENT JOB?

Your application will be evaluated by our Talent Acquisition Managers to see how well your profile matches the job you have applied for. If we think you might be a good fit, we will contact you directly. If you do not hear back from us within two weeks after applying, feel free to contact us to check on the status of your application. We will always inform you about our decision, but please note that due to the very high number of applications we receive, we cannot provide detailed feedback to those applicants who were unsuccessful in the first steps of the application process.
HOW DOES TRAVEL BOOKING AND REIMBURSEMENT FOR INTERVIEWS WORK?
Generally, you will organize your travel yourself. We reimburse travel costs from your home to our office (including the accommodation if needed) that have emerged due to the interviewing process. However, this will be arranged with you properly during the process of your application.
DOES INNOGAMES SUPPORT ME WITH RELOCATION TO HAMBURG?
We will fully support you in the whole relocation process.

CAN I REAPPLY FOR THE SAME JOB, EVEN IF I WAS REJECTED FOR THAT JOB PREVIOUSLY?
Unfortunately, you cannot reapply for the same job, as we have already evaluated your skills and they do not fit the requirements we have for this job.
However, you can still apply for other current openings. Nevertheless, we kindly ask you to self-reflect on available opportunities first and apply only for those jobs that suit both your expertise and your expectations. Throughout the application process, we always cross-evaluate your application for similar jobs.

We do not have specific deadlines for applications. However, we are trying to fill open positions as fast as possible. So, as long as you can find a position on our careers page, it is still vacant, and you can apply for it.

Besides the technical skills, we also evaluate the team and company fit over the course of the application process. So, even if you don't fulfill all technical expectations, you can convince the hiring team with your personality and passion.
I HAVE ACCEPTED A JOB SOMEWHERE ELSE. HOW CAN I CANCEL MY APPLICATION?
Informing us that you want to withdraw your application saves us a lot of effort, so we appreciate it! Just send an email by replying to the last email from us or writing directly to email@example.com.
CAN I WORK REMOTELY FOR INNOGAMES?
We offer our colleagues the flexibility to choose between working from their home in Germany and our modern offices in central Hamburg. And with regular times planned together in the office, we keep up our unique InnoGames spirit!
Important: starting your job with InnoGames would require a work permit in Germany from day one, which you can only obtain already having set foot on German ground. Moreover, it is essential, i. a., for tax and social insurance reasons, that you are in Germany, as we do not have any subsidiaries outside of Germany. So, for a remote start into the job, it would currently be necessary to live in any German city already.
But we are working on a solution for international remote work - stay tuned.
HOW FLEXIBLE ARE THE WORKING HOURS AT INNOGAMES?
We have flexible working hours between 6 am and 11 pm from Monday to Friday. We do not have official company core hours, and teams decide on their own how the best possible collaboration for them can be assured while still keeping the flexibility.
DOES INNOGAMES OFFER APPRENTICESHIPS?
Since the company foundation in 2007, we are offering apprenticeship positions to counteract the shortage of skilled professionals. The main focus of our apprenticeship roles is on the field of development – here we are offering several positions yearly.
Every 2-3 years we offer apprenticeship positions in the fields of System Administration, Marketing and Art too.
All available apprenticeship opportunities can be found on our career page under the section “Career Starters”. If there are no apprenticeship positions advertised, we are already fully stuffed for the upcoming year of training.
DO YOU OFFER INTERNSHIPS?
We offer internship positions in different departments on a regular basis. But since we always want both sides to benefit from an internship, we only offer internships for a minimum of six months and only if we can assure our full support
All available internship opportunities can be found on our career page, in the "Career Starters" section.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO DO A SCHOOL INTERNSHIP AT INNOGAMES?
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer school internships currently.
We only offer internships with a minimum duration of six months and only if we have sufficient capacity to provide optimal support in relevant departments. We will publish those internships on our career page, in the "Career Starters" section.
When it comes to internships, we are commited to providing you with a high-quality experience and opportunity to learn meaningfully. We believe it would not be fair to you if we offer an internship of a shorter duration without being able to assure you of our comprehensive support.
CAN I WRITE MY THESIS AT INNOGAMES?
Due to the high number of students currently completing their combined Master's and Bachelor's studies with InnoGames, we do not have a capacity to support external theses.
DOES INNOGAMES OFFER DUAL STUDY PROGRAMS?
At InnoGames we offer combined study programs with the focus on Development or Business (e.g., Marketing) – the so called InnoBachelor and InnoMaster programs. The difference to a dual study program is that students are studying part-time while being in a part-time employment with InnoGames. So, there is no rotation in monthly blocks between theoretical courses at the university and practical on-the-job-training at the company.
All available combined study programs can be found on our career page, in the "Career Starters" section.
CAN I REFER PEOPLE FOR YOUR OPEN ROLES?
Yes, absolutely! We welcome referrals from everyone. If you know someone who would be a great fit for one of our open positions, please find more information on our referral program Got Friends here. Your referrals can play a vital role in helping us discover top talent, and we appreciate your contribution to our team-building efforts. Every successful referral can award you 1000 €!

Of course, you can withdraw your consent at any time by simply sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will delete your application and data straight away.
CAN I DO FREELANCE WORK FOR INNOGAMES?
For the jobs listed on our career page, we are looking for long-term employment relationships, unless in a rare case the job descriptions explicitly calls for a freelance work.
Although we work with freelancers on a regular basis, we have a strong network of freelancers and outsourcing studios already and are not actively looking for extending it at the moment.
HOW SHOULD I ADDRESS PEOPLE AT INNOGAMES?
InnoGames has a highly professional but friendly, casual and creative atmosphere where everyone, including the management, expects to be addressed by the first-name (in German, "du").
CAN I SUBMIT MY GAME IDEA?
Every aspect of InnoGames´games is developed internally. Therefore, we kindly ask you not to submit your ideas –all creative material will be returned unread.
