Other Job Offers!
Hamburg's excitement for sports goes beyond local football clubs and even contributes to the products developed by its local game studio northworks. Our northern colleagues currently operate the football manager game goalunited as well as the racing game UnitedGP.
Currently no vacancies
Cologne isn’t just home to the magnificent Cathedral and never-ending streams of carnival revellers, but also Bright Future, our colleagues from the Rhine riverbanks. They are the minds behind the FIFA Football Manager games and currently operate the magical farm game Miramagia as well as the exciting railway simulator Rail Nation.
- Senior DevOps Engineer (f/m/d)
Our success comes from our employees. That’s why we have an annual reward program that shares some of our profit with you. In addition to that, we reward you for every 5 years that you’ve been in the company.
Hire a friend
We are always looking for new talent. If you know just the right person and refer them to us, you will receive a bonus as soon as your friend passes their probation period. Enough to invite them to a nice lunch. If you want to.
Child care cooperation
Yes, some of us may just be adult-sized children, but we also care about the little ones. If you’re looking for a day-care center for your child, we cooperate with one just around the corner of the office.
It’s good to clear your head sometimes. Whether you’re a fan of swimming, saunas or pumping some iron, we have deals with several fitness centers across Munich where we cover a big chunk of your membership cost.
Regular training & development
We want to develop great people just as much as great games. Therefore we provide regular trainings both in-house and external, be it for soft skills, language trainings or something tailored to your professional expertise.
It’s always good to keep a full health bar. That’s why we provide weekly fruit baskets and infinite human fuel, aka coffee, for all our employees. We also have water coolers, since pop culture dictates they’re the greatest tool to inspire conversation. And they keep you hydrated.
Choose your weapon
Mac or PC? Tablet or high end power machine? We make sure that you have the equipment you need to excel in your craft.
We've always been flexible here at Travian Games. As a well-established, medium-sized games company, we take pride in our work (as there is plenty of it!) and want you to be reassured that Travian Games, and the gaming industry, is a safe place to work, especially during times of COVID-19.
Do these FAQ also refer to the subsidiaries Bright Future in Cologne and northworks in Hamburg?
No, they refer exclusively to Travian Games GmbH in Munich. More information about Bright Future and northworks can be found at brightfuture.de and northworks.de. Please contact them by email via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Should I attach a picture of myself to my job application?
That’s completely up to you. We can ensure you that whether you attach a picture or not won’t affect how we will treat your application.
Should I write a letter of motivation?
Yes. We would like to get a better idea why you want to work for Travian Games, why you’ve chosen this position, and why you fit it better than anyone else!
How do I know if my application was sent successfully?
You will receive an automatic email from us after your application was successful.
I have accepted a job somewhere else. How can I cancel my application?
Informing us that you want to withdraw your application saves us a lot of efforts, so we do really appreciate it. Please just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens with my personal data?
As soon as you upload your data into our system, you allow us to save, edit and use it for the duration of the application process. If you want to withdraw from this, simply send an email to email@example.com. We will delete your application and data straight away.

What files do I need to include in my job application?
Please check the mandatory/optional list for your chosen job opening in the recruiting system. If you’re not an EU resident, but already have a residence permit, feel free to attach it as well.
Should my application be in English or German?
Usually we prefer job applications in English, if not otherwise stated within the specific job advertisement.
Can I apply for several positions at the same time?
Yes, you can.
If I receive a rejection, can I still apply for a different job?
A rejection for one position does not necessarily mean an overall rejection from the company. You can still apply for different roles if you think you’re a good fit.
What happens after I send my job application?
Your application will be checked by HR and, if deemed positive, forwarded to whoever was advertising the position. If they are convinced and would like to get to know you further, they will invite you to a job interview. This happens either via skype or on-site, depending on your location.
Is there a dress code for the interview?
No. You can always “dress to impress”, but keep in mind we are a games company and not a bank. We prefer you wear something that fits your personality and that you would also wear to work on a normal day.
What steps is Travian Games taking regarding COVID-19?
Travian Games is committed to staff safety at all times, especially during this on-going pandemic. Following the German government's rules and regulations around COVID-19, our Munich, Hamburg, and Cologne offices have taken necessary steps to ensure all staff members' safety when in-office. You will have the option to work from home, with home-office flexibility, until such times as these regulations change.
Can I apply as a lateral entrant?
Yes, you can. Lateral entrants are a frequent occurrence in the IT industry and often provide a new perspective on issues at hand.
How long does it take until I receive feedback on my application?
You receive a notification email immediately after you finish your application. After that, we try to reply to you as soon as we can.
How does travel booking and reimbursement work?
Generally, you will organize your travel yourself. We reimburse any travel costs from your home to our office that match the price of a coach class train ticket. However, this will be organized with you properly during the process of your application.

We support the relocation to Munich for new employees who start a permanent position at Travian Games with a relocation agency. Further details will be talked about during your application process.
