Runescape Content Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Jagex in August 2012.

Interview Details The pre-interview is handled entirely by Jagex's HR department through emails. The first step is submit your CV and if it passes a review you are asked to complete a timed, online test covering subjects such as pseudocode, game design and general attitude. Those who pass this test are invited to a full day trial at Jagex's Cambridge office. The trial is divided into 2 parts - a coding section and a design section, with interviews thrown in at various points along the course of the day.

Interview Question – Most questions are standard interview questions probing the applicants strengths and weaknesses, nothing really tricky.   Answer Question

Animator Interview

Anonymous Employee
Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Jagex.

Interview Details A long wait followed by a somewhat unusual psudo-phone interview.
A couple of months later after hearing nothing...
Interview over 2 day practical test, using proprietary in-house software (this software has since been dropped for new projects). Several other applicants did not return after lunch of the first day or on the second morning due to the weirdness of the software.
Interview its self was fairly standard - nothing hugely unexpected.

The HR side of this was very sloppy, and the internal recruiter did not inspire confidence. Generally a poor experience.

Interview Question – Alot of questions about what I thought of the company, after working their for a few weeks the reasons for these became clear (see the reviews of this employer).   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation over pay appears non-existent for development roles but stick to your guns, they have deep pockets and if they want you they will pay out.
It is much easier to get money at this point than later on.

Interview Details Childs play really... build a bridge - show that you can work in a team/leader, talk rubbish which is relevant to their interests and show your passion for the company like it's the only thing in the world.

Interview Question – Building a bridge with only tape and paper.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Starting salary with an email.... Non-existent.
