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.

We are looking for an HR Generalist who will join our HR Team on that journey. 

In collaboration with fellow HR Generalists, you will play a key position in our HR Team interacting with our employees throughout their whole employment lifecycle and addressing their questions and needs.

With your highly engaging and proactive approach, you will be identifying and managing projects to positively impact the employee experience.

This is a 24-month fixed-term contract role, with the possibility to extend it based on performance and business needs.

About the role 

  • You will own the Onboarding process, including Relocation and New Hire Orientation to create an extraordinary employee experience
  • You will offer daily administrative assistance to our employees and managers, including contract management, work permit applications, parental leave etc.
  • You will manage our HR-related data and reports. You will ensure information reliability and availability within our HRIS system and personnel files
  • You will manage the awesome range of benefits that we offer to our employees
  • You will support our Accounting team with respect to Payroll preparation
  • You will contribute to our L&D environment by administering trainings and workshops

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.
