Anonymous tips from our recruiters
How do I know when is the last day to apply for an open position on the website?
We look forward to checking out your background and learning more about your interest in Supercell. Once you’ve hit the submit button, sit back and relax! We’ll get back to you within the next two weeks!
Can I send an open application?
We’ve decided to remove the possibility to send open applications through the website. We are doing our best to stay focused and doing so by keeping the teams small and growing the company steadily. Rest assured that the open positions on our website have been thoroughly considered before opening, and these are the roles we are looking to fill at this time. Keep coming back to our careers page to find a role that fits you! Or follow us on Linkedin on any news on open positions.
What kind of portfolio do you want to see?
We want to see a variety of examples and game assets: characters, buildings, props, icons, UI, your personal work and own concepts. We’re interested in seeing different art styles and especially something that is close to the art styles of our games. While final assets are cool, we definitely love gazing our eyes on WIP stuff, sketches and anything that shows your process!
What if I don’t have an online portfolio?
While we do enjoy the ease of hyperlinks, you can share your portfolio or any offline material as a file upload in the application form. If you simply don’t have an online portfolio yet, there are loads of free platforms where you can easily build up your own online portfolio if you don’t have your own website.
I don’t live in the country where this position is based. Can I still apply?
Yes, of course! We arrange travels for interviews to meet you in person and give the opportunity to visit the office and city you might find yourself living in. If you get hired and want to join Supercell, we’ll help with getting you and your family here.
What if I have questions about the position? Who can I contact?
We do our best to provide as much information as possible, both here on the website and in the job description. Once you’ve sent your application and received a confirmation email, hang tight! You’ll hear back from our recruiter soon. If you made it to the next step, they are happy to answer your questions.
Do you provide internships?
Unfortunately our small size and ways of working makes it very difficult for us to accommodate trainees or interns. Keeping our teams small, and trusting each team member with lots of tasks makes us efficient and nimble, but leaves us with little capacity for proper mentoring.
Can I apply again in the future? If I get rejected now, when can I apply again?
You betcha! You wouldn’t be the first one of us. While the absolute number of times you apply doesn’t count, what matters is if you have the skills we are looking for the position.
Can I get feedback on why I wasn’t chosen?
We wish we could respond to each person who is rejected, but by nature of our small size and microfocused recruiting team, we simply do not have the luxury of critiquing each person who applies.
Can I join you but still work remotely from my home country, I’m not able to relocate?
All of our positions require physically joining the team in the office they’re based in. However, some of our teams do work with freelancer artists.
