HR Business Partner
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, and the truly collaborative way of working. We create joyful experiences that awaken our players’ desire to see what happens next. Based in the heart of Berlin, with over 280 employees from around the world, we work together to create high-quality casual games with engaging stories at the core of the experience.
From its humble beginnings in Berlin’s burgeoning startup scene of 2009, Wooga has emerged as a worldwide leader in the booming mobile games industry. Building and engaging a globally-minded, diverse company of 300 game specialists in Berlin is no small feat and one that wouldn’t be possible without our world-class HR team.
We are seeking to bolster this award-winning team with the addition of a HR Business Partner. As part of a small team, you will be sought after as a reliable advisor on organizational structure, leadership, employee engagement, and much more!
Some of your tasks include:
- Use a combination of HR tools and regular meetings with employees across disciplines (Art, Engineering, Product, Publishing, and Services) to continuously gauge what’s going well and what could be improved in the organization
- Advise and coach managers on techniques for effective leadership, engagement, and development of their teams. Be a sparring partner to the people managers and help them to achieve their goals through continuous partnership and coaching
- Provide day-to-day answering of employee queries regarding contracts, career development, and organizational changes

- Consult and interpret legal regulations and laws to the people managers and employees to make sure all processes are in compliance
- Play an instrumental role in managing change in our organization from concept to execution and communication
- Proven experience as an HR Business Partner

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.
- Shape the future! Challenge the status quo and team up with a diverse group of experts (over 50 nationalities!) working on crafting the world’s best games.
- Located in Europe’s most creative city with low cost of living and high quality of life. We offer a generous relocation package and home search support if you are not already located in Berlin. Did we mention that we also cooperate with Kindergartens?
- Make use of a significant education budget and extra days off for self-development. Join our meet-ups, talks, brown bag lunches, internal trainings, workshops and many others.
- Enjoy the yoga, mindfulness app, sports and transport subsidies. And a Purpose Day to donate your time to a worthy cause!
- Participate in the company’s success - we offer a quarterly bonus scheme!
- Did you know that German is the third most commonly taught language worldwide? Learn it too! We offer German language classes for you and your significant other.
- Choose your own equipment and be set up for success! We also provide you with a work-from-home budget, which you can invest in a well-functioning home office setup. We got your back!
At Wooga we are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for everyone who works here or with us, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion (or lack thereof) and game preferences. Be yourself, we like you that way!
