Vacancy opened 02-07-2019
Location: Milan

Job purpose :
Commitment & Contract

Full-time, permanent (tempo indeterminato).

Location

Milan, Corso Como 15. It’s fine if you prefer to work remotely sometimes. We offer substantial support for relocation, including finding an apartment in Milan and paying the rent for twelve weeks.

Compensation & Benefits

Generous, top of market, and moreover can grow very rapidly and include stock options, depending on your performance. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are paid-for, when you work from the office. You’ll receive the latest Mac, iPhone, and wireless noise-cancelling Bose headset.

At Bending Spoons, we’re aiming to build one of the best companies in the world. Already one of the top iOS app developers worldwide, we're going to expand our product line to include hyper-casual and casual games with the goal of creating the next hits. Therefore, we’re looking for someone with exceptional passion, creativity, analytical ability, and integrity to turn more great ideas into reality.


A few examples of your responsibilities:



  • Use your creativity and your business sensitivity to define new hyper-casual and casual concepts (or rethink existing ones), and pitch them to the team. Be ready to be constantly challenged, by your team and by the market.

  • Balance system variables and iterate on core game mechanics to make the product’s vision come true.

  • Develop a deep understanding of the players’ needs and motivations, listen to their feedback, and react accordingly. Study competitors as well as the market at large, looking for new opportunities.

  • Know your games’ numbers inside out. Constantly analyze data, test, and iterate, with a very data-driven mindset.

  • Work with game developers and artists to ensure the game turns out to be exactly as intended.

  • What We Offer

  • Huge impact. You’ll experience what it’s like to design games for one of the fastest growing mobile companies in the world. Combined with our knowledge of the mobile industry, your work will have a good chance of ending up in the hands of millions of players.
  • Independence. Together with your colleagues, you’ll be free to choose a direction for a game, test, fail, and try again.
  • Top-notch team. You’ll be immersed in a concentration of talent, expertise, and team spirit you’re unlikely to find anywhere else.
  • International reach. We’ve conquered hundreds of millions of downloads for our apps, and our users come from all over the world. We’re a global reality and your work will have global exposure.
  • What We Look For

  • Passion for hyper-casual and casual games. You love to create fun, engaging user experiences, and spend a big part of your day researching new market trends, aiming to create the next hit.
  • Creativity. You’re inventive and find inspiration everywhere.
  • Reasoning and depth of learning. You can solve most challenging problems independently, given the necessary knowledge. You learn new concepts and skills rapidly, and look to understand stuff truly in depth.
  • Precision. You’re famously accurate and pay attention to detail, on both minor and major tasks.
  • Interpersonal skills. You love working with people and can build quality relationships with everybody.
  • Relevant experience. You’ve got at least a couple of games under your belt. You know your way around the most common game development platforms such as Unity or Unreal.
  • Rationality and self-control. You like to make decisions based on facts, and you can generally keep doing that even in moments of stress or emotion.
  • Vision. You can dream big dreams and see a path to make them come true.
  • Pragmatism. Far from being too academic or obsessive in your perfectionism, you understand that, when getting things done in a competitive world, speed is often as important as quality.
  • Drive. You’re energetic, hard-working, and persevere through adversity until the job is done, and done well. You get turned on by getting results, and always aim for excellence in what you do.
  • Curiosity and initiative. You love exploring and you’re entrepreneurial in seeking out new opportunities and testing new ideas of your own accord.
  • Communication. Your communication, both written and oral, is structured and crystal clear.
  • Humility. You’re down to earth, eager to listen to people’s constructive criticism, and ready to get your hands dirty with whatever the team needs to succeed.
  • Proficiency in English. You read, write, and speak proficiently in English.

    Compensation & Benefits

    11.80€ per hour. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are paid-for, when you work from the office.

    With tens of millions of active users and an ever-increasing number of active projects, complexity and workload are growing quickly at Bending Spoons. Hence, we’re looking for a young, smart, versatile, pragmatic, energetic, and proactive student to come and help us part-time by taking care of executing a wide variety of unspecialized tasks, so that our more experienced Spooners can devote more of their time to problems that require their deeper expertise.


    Expect any kind of mission, but a few examples could be:



  • Compile a database of potential hires from various sources and then identify the most interesting ones for Bending Spoons.

  • Improvise yourself detective to find contact information for app developers we’d like to do business with.

  • Following our guidelines, reply to the many users of our apps that email asking for support.

  • What We Offer

  • Unique environment. We think we’re one of the most exciting companies in Europe, and you’ll be able to experience firsthand what it's like to be one of us.
  • International vibe. Most of our users are American and our company language is English, so you’ll get to practice it a bit.
  • Flexibility and trust. You’ll be one of the team and fully trusted. No micromanagement or checking on your working hours. Just focus on doing a great job.
  • Young colleagues. We’re 28 years old on average, so as a student you won’t feel like the odd one out, and you might actually end up making new friends.
  • What We Look For

  • You’re a student. We won’t offer this job to professionals.
  • Conversational English. You read and write well and speak at a conversational level.
  • Moderate IT skills. You’re tech savvy enough to smoothly use Google Docs, Google Sheets, and run advanced searches on Google.
  • Drive. You’re energetic and persevere until the job is done, and done well.
  • Precision. You’re detail oriented and can accurately follow instructions.
  • Hands-on attitude. You’re pragmatic: you typically have good common sense for how to get things done in practice as opposed to just being a theoretician.
  • Good reasoning. You understand and learn not-too-complex tasks in a heartbeat, and carry them out independently.
  • Humility. You’re eager to help and not at all picky on what tasks you’re asked to take on.

    We know our success starts with our people, and so attracting top talent is our company’s number one priority. We cherry-pick each Spooner among thousands of applicants, never compromising on our exceptionally high standards. Having extremely ambitious goals for this year, we’re looking for an eclectic recruiter who brings a balance of creativity and determination to our team.
    A few examples of your responsibilities:



  • Screen applications.

  • Pore over internal and external databases scouting for passive candidates.

  • Create mass communication campaigns to reach top-talents around Europe.

  • Come up with new, high-yield channels and initiatives for our recruiting campaigns.

  • Schedule and hold interviews, making sure each candidate is offered a positive experience, no matter the outcome.

  • What We Offer

  • 360° approach to recruiting. You’ll follow candidates from scouting to onboarding, with the opportunity of improving every step of the recruiting process.
  • Variety. You’ll be recruiting for many different roles, from business to technical ones, continuously adjusting your strategy and communication accordingly.
  • Unique environment. We think we’re one of the most exciting and fast-growing tech companies in Europe, and you’ll be able to experience firsthand what it’s like to be one of us. Nothing about Bending Spoons is conventional, and we like it this way.
  • International reach. Our audience is wildly international, and so should be our team. Our company language is English. We’re a global reality.
  • No micromanaging. Be the owner of your effort, and take responsibility for your tasks. You’ll be given all the incentives to make a real impact.
  • Hands-on learning. Learn all our tricks and best-practices guided by more experienced Spooners, and put your new skills at use from the very beginning.
  • What We Look For

  • Go-getter, resilient attitude. Once you have a goal, you are impossible to stop, charging forward to make it happen at all costs. Failure doesn’t discourage you, as you stand up after a fall, and try again, undeterred.

  • Ability to relate with others. You’ll have to passionately and energetically communicate our vision, and be amicable, if you’re to win over difficult candidates. Consequently, you need to be able to connect with them. If you are not an extrovert, you must be able to act as one when needed!
  • Communication. You’ll be responsible for the correspondence with candidates, and for developing copy for our career page and job listings. For this reason, your proficiency in English and Italian is high-level, both orally and in writing.
  • Humility. You’re eager to help and not at all picky on what tasks you’re asked to take on. You’re open to feedback and truly value others’ opinions.
  • Some IT and spreadsheet skills. You’re savvy enough to smoothly use Google Docs, Google Sheets, and/or Microsoft Excel.
