After that, we selected 4 most relevant candidates and offered the company to consider and invite them to the next stage – a technical interview, where they could demonstrate their skills and answer relevant questions. Each of these candidates was also sent a technical task to assess their level of knowledge and abilities.

After the technical task was reviewed and successfully completed by a candidate who demonstrated in-depth knowledge and skills, it was decided to invite her to a final meeting with an HR representative from Plarium. At this meeting, the working conditions were discussed in detail and the potential benefits for the candidate were reviewed, after which she received a formal offer.

Therefore, the Game Designer position was successfully closed, and the candidate became a new member of the Plarium team.
