Frequently asked questions
Q: I don't have any work examples. Can I still apply for a job?

A: Games industry experience is certainly a bonus, but it's not always necessary. It's important to put together an excellent portfolio that demonstrates your skills and your understanding of the game development process.
Q: I applied for a job with you, but I haven’t heard back. What happens now?
A: We aim to respond to all applications within three weeks. Due to the volume of requests, this sometimes takes a little longer. If you have not heard from us within three weeks, your application was most likely unsuccessful.

Q: I'm considering working at Guerrilla in the future. Is it possible for me to come for a tour of the studio?
