Will you be attending GDC in Cologne, Germany? That may be your chance to join the GOG.com Team!

GDC Europe is starting on Monday, August 19, and we'd like you to know that GOG.com will be there. You can find us at Booth 147--make sure to drop by and say "hi!". Or maybe you'll be one of those people who actually get to stick around much, much longer? We've recently posted a variety of job offers. In particular, we're looking to fulfill a variety of developer positions at our Warsaw, Poland office:

Senior Web Developer, PHP
Senior Web Designer
Web Graphic Designer
Lead Software Engineer
Senior Software Engineer, Desktop
Senior Software Engineer, Online

Are you any one of these, perchance? Then come, and join our DRM-free revolution! We offer a competitive salary, great working atmosphere, extensive health and sport activity packages, and help in relocating to the amazing city of Warsaw. You can visit our booth at any time during the event, or--if you're serious about landing one of these positions--you can even schedule a meeting with our charming HR specialist at work@gog.com.

That's not all of GOG.com-related attractions at GDC. Our Head of Marketing & PR Trevor Longino (also known as The Enigmatic T, the Voice of This Week on GOG, The Beheaded Man in The Hat, The Scourge of Carpathia, the--oh, you know who we mean) is also speaking at GDC in a session titled, PR Quest! The Adventure to Make Your Game a Success the GOG.com Way! at 14:30 (local time) on Monday, 19 August in Congress Saal 3. Join him, if you want to learn a bit more about GOG.com and our extravagant ways.

We hope to see you in Cologne!
I do find it depressing that a GOG announcement of PR in the forums goes unnoticed for so long. Especially since people complain that you don't post here.

So, good luck on your hunt and remember: "A kind word and a gun will get you much farther than a kind word alone"
You know, the chance to work for GOG does make me wonder if perhaps I made a mistake in my career choice. Nice to see GOG is doing well enough to be expanding.

Is there any chance for a video of TET's seminar to be published afterwards?

Out of curiosity: what is your field of expertise?
Do you have any openings for mascot ? I'm sure tinyE would be great for that .
I can make a cup of coffee can i get a job :)

Vestin: Out of curiosity: what is your field of expertise?
Social Sciences. More precisely, the EU from a politics/polity side of things (with a dash of policies mixed in-between). Don't get me wrong, a very interesting field, regardless of all the current talk about it and I enjoy my work on it very much.

However, GOG for me represents the type of company that many should aspire to and its work is for a computer enthusiast like myself the hot-spring from which greater things will arise.

Woohoo! :)

I may be on the right career but I'm no good with either technology those positions use so I feel like I made a mistake as well.
Also being born on another continent is a really big mistake. I have zero hopes of attending GDC. :(

So I want to know
I knew I should have been more interested in the charm of client-server code :(.
Got a place for a qualified dogsbody and experienced gopher?
Hmm, nothing I could apply to.

But if you need a punching bag just call me. I would fit perfectly...

The idea of moving from Finland to the warm and tropical Warsaw sounds alluring (even so much I would be ready to maybe halve my salary from the current one)... but I presume they are looking for young guns half my age. :)

And maybe I am still hoping a miracle to happen and some expat position in e.g. SE Asia opens up from my current employer, which I could use. :) But I presume I am not the only one with such wishes. There are probably more positions open at Antarctica than in SE Asia.

I would join GOG but I am under contract until the summer of 2015. Can you keep off from recruiting until then?
So what is GOG plotting? The web developer job ads provide no valuable information, but for the software developers:

Technical knowledge of popular operating systems: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux.

Proficiency in C++ with proven experience
Knowledge of distributed systems

Experience in implementing client-server / cloud solutions into apps or games.
Knowledge of as many of the following as possible: multiplayer services in games, voip

Experience in multi-platform development.
Experience in developing rich desktop applications heavily oriented on excellent UX.
Technical knowledge of popular operating systems: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux.

GOG client confirmed
The Linux requirement could mean everything: Linux games, streaming of Games to the desktop, Linux servers...

That they seem to use C++ for a cross platform client is more interesting.
