QA

We are hiring!

Come work with us on our future (adventure) games for PC and consoles!

Why work for DigiTales?

We do our best to make DigiTales a good place for everyone here. Jobs are varied and creative, and everyone has their own responsibilities. We sometimes play and/or party together, but we respect each other's boundaries. (We're not 'family', your family's your family!) Work hours are flexible. We managed to make our first game crunch-free and release it on time, let's make that a trend. We offer many office amenities including two adorable pugs, a shared floor with some other cool indie devs (but our own office), and home office every Wednesday. Also, Saarbrücken is great! It's a vibrant, young, friendly, and relatively cheap city to live in. If you need to move, we'll help you find a place. We look forward to hearing from you!

Relevant to all positions

No matter which position you are interested in, it's a plus if any of the following applies to you. If you do not check some or even most of the boxes for a position (except for legal requirements) but feel like you are right for the job, please apply regardless! Your skills and personality are more important anyway.

  • Able to speak, read and write English and/or German more or less fluently.
  • Interest in video games, particularly adventures.
  • Not (too) allergic to dogs since our QA department consists of two pugs. 🐶🐶
  • Prior employment, experience, or interest in game dev, including different disciplines.
  • If you have a portfolio, work sample, or prior shipped project(s) to show off, that's the most interesting stuff you can send us! (Please avoid sending huge files via e-mail, though.)
  • We value a diversity of opinions and positions as much as any other type of diversity. However, some 'opinions' are dumb and wrong, and bigots don't have a place at DigiTales.
  • Please send your application exclusively to jobs@digitales.games.
