The sister company of CD PROJEKT RED (responsible for the worldwide success of The Witcher, the video game series adapted from Andrzej Sapkowski’s books), GOG.com is a digital distribution platform, which offers customers the greatest selection of Windows, Mac and Linux games, both classics and day-one titles, DRM-free, with lots of extra goodies and amazing customer support. Our work environment is relaxed, and the company philosophy often goes against the typical corporate flow. As a (Junior) Product Specialist, you initially will be helping the Product Managers prepare and coordinate each game release, making sure that we are offering the best deal possible and that the deadlines are met. In addition, you will be involved in the process of creating game descriptions, gathering extra content for digital download, and maintaining your deliverables list in a fast-changing, high-energy environment. Our keyword is “lfg”.
- Assuring a high quality release for each game.
- Communicating and coordinating releases and projects with partners as well as internal stakeholders.
- Preparing storefront pages, including copy, screenshots and metadata.
- Managing games’ pre-launch, as well as supporting and maintaining game updates post-launch.

- Ability to hunt down content on the Internet (good google-fu is mandatory).
- Attention to detail (include the keyword in your Cover Letter).
- Ability to think logically and analytically in order to creatively solve problems.
- Problem solving skills: taking initiative and bringing solutions. We like to move things forward at GOG.com rather than get stuck on worrying.

- Strong command of written and spoken English.
- A friendly temperament will not hurt. 🙂
NICE TO HAVE
- ‚Hold my beer, I got this!’ attitude.
- Previous experience working in the computer games industry, or a third-level degree (completed studies, or in progress, however, you should be available to work full-time).
