Our Story

At Wooga, we are very proud of the diverse, creative and friendly environment we have established and we believe you will enjoy working with some of the best people in the industry. Each of our Woogas plays an important role in our success as a company and in shaping our culture. We really value our razor-sharp focus on story-driven casual games, excellent craftsmanship, truly collaborative way of working, and the values we strive to live up to every day. We create joyful experiences that awaken our players’ desire to see what happens next. Based in the heart of Berlin, with over 300 employees from around the world, we work together to create high-quality casual games with engaging stories at the core of the experience.

Our vision is to be the player’s choice for story-driven casual games. We aim to create joyful everyday experiences in which our players are part of the story.

As our next Game Writer, you are skilled at building worlds, creating exciting story hooks, and bringing memorable characters to life in concise, clear, characterful dialogue. Furthermore, you get that a game’s story does not stop with the dialogue, but extends to the way the player experiences the game’s core fantasy as they interact with the game world, and you can integrate narrative into a game’s features and use game mechanics to reinforce storytelling and react to the player’s actions.

You understand your audience and can put on your “player hat” to ensure the story is fun to play. You know the limits and are excited by the opportunities of storytelling in the free-to-play space.

What you’ll be doing

  • Work  within a writers’ room setting to create serialized stories for a free-to-play mobile audience that is primarily female
  • Write and rewrite story outlines, chapter scripts and other narrative materials while applying feedback on schedule
  • Work with art and design to ensure that every aspect of the game tells and reinforces the story and the player’s role in it
  • Work with product and marketing to understand the game’s audience and opportunities to reach them through storytelling
  • Contribute to the writing team’s creative operations, including some shared administrative and liaising tasks.
  • Give feedback to and mentor other writers

Who we are looking for

  • Experience telling interactive stories or writing for games, and integrating a game’s mechanics into the narrative
  • A proven ability to write distinct, concise dialogue and authentic characters as well as plot structured stories.
  • Knowledge of our games’ audiences and ability to craft commercial stories that appeal to them, particularly in the mystery genre
  • A capacity for communicating clearly, and taking and offering creative feedback with a candid but solutions-oriented approach
  • Fluent English skills
  • Ability to adapt style to match the project’s current tone and character voices 

Want to apply?

Please note that only applications submitted in English will be considered. 

Please make sure to submit a CV, cover letter (no longer than one page, stating why you want to work at Wooga, how you became a writer, and things you consider when writing a story), and writing samples for our interview committee to review. 

  • Submit 3 writing samples, 10 pages or less each
  • At least one sample must be game writing, but you are welcome to include samples from film, TV, theatre, comic books, or novels
  • Writing samples should show an understanding of characterization, dramatic conflict and skill with dialogue

Please note: Research has shown that some under-represented groups in the gaming industry (eg: women) tend to apply only if they meet every single requirement. Here at Wooga, the desire to learn and the willingness to solve problems are more important to us than your experience on paper. We encourage you to apply even if you do not think that you tick all the boxes - thinking outside of such boxes and embracing the diversity of mindsets and backgrounds is what we believe makes our teams thrive.
