WEBZEN is recruiting!

Date Dec 19, 2016 Views 2,317



Dear Community,


Join the fun and become part of the Webzen Family! We are recruiting passionate players, smart businesspeople, and serious talents.

Ever wanted to turn your passion into an occupation? Want to become part of Webzen and take responsibility for your game? Then this is the chance you've been waiting for!

This topic is for those of you interested in working at Webzen’s European office and becoming part of our gaming company! We at Webzen believe that the best people to take care of your favourite games are actually you - players from within the community. We obviously expect that the ideal candidate knows one or more of our games inside out, or is at least very familiar with our portal. But remember: This is a real job, not a game or a voluntary role!

Below you will find the current vacancies at Webzen. We encourage you to send us your applications if you are interested in any of the positions listed. You are also free to reach out to us via a speculative application if you don't see your desired position advertised, but believe you would be a great addition to our family!


A few important notes before you apply:
  • If an open vacancy states an office location, it means that relocation to the specific city/country will be required and that the position is not offered as a freelance and/or remote position. So if you see "@ Dublin Office", we are expecting successful candidates to move to Dublin, Ireland, and work here in our office with us.
  • Since we've all been applicants at one stage, we know how demanding waiting for a reply can be. However, please be reminded that sending in multiple applications/emails will not speed up the process of your individual application, but will ultimately slow it down.
  • A position that has already been filled might still be listed as open, or be filled during your own application progress. In these cases, we will hold onto your CV and reach out to you once another fitting position opens up. If you don’t want us to keep your CV on file, please mention it in your application. (We will then delete your application from our DB after the requested timeframe.)
