8Bit is a boutique headhunting recruitment agency that specializes in recruiting for game development. We will help you hire the best candidates for your game studio.
8Bit Recruitment agencies' hiring strategies focus on games specialist headhunting. We search and screen game developers, artists, game designers, programmers, and producers on a daily basis.
We don’t limit ourselves to CVs and databases. We make use of our extensive network of contacts, use advanced tools and sometimes even instigate career changes in order to find the hottest talents for video game studios ‘our clients’. At our game recruiting agency we do not only search for candidates, we screen and analyze the possible employees in order to get the best match for your business need.
As a game recruiting agency, we know the games industry inside out - we have directed/handled/guided a great deal of highly skilled talents in the game production through their career changes and later played the games they made.
We support hiring in game development and VR as well as tech start-ups. Our comprehensive offer and recruitment services are suitable for all small, medium and large gaming studios across the globe. We’re closely cooperating with clients that are located globally which entrust us with recruitment for their stationary positions as well as remote ones.
Hiring the very right talent to fit your team, organization culture and business needs can be challenging and time-consuming. Outsourcing is the best way to put your focus back on the core business and leave recruitment to the external specialists. With the years of recruiting experience for multiple VR, mobile, and AAA console studios, we’ve managed to develop a vast network of connections on every continent.
We know how critical and necessary skills are needed in the creative development of a gaming studio, and we are ready to place the appropriate talent when, and where you need it.
With our clients, we have developed a special business connection, but it's a result of hard work that was put in, combined with effective sourcing that was accompanied with each successfully placed candidate we derived from all over the world.
And during the pandemic when their businesses needed to take the 'remote' transition, we stood by them, we have been there for them throughout because we know them and we speak their language. So we have gained a unique and bigger insight into their employment expectations, structure, and reasons for their decisions. Cooperation is not often a two-way street and with our LinkedIn network community as well as private groups associating creative and hard-working game developers, 8Bit actively participates in game industry discussions, obstacles in hiring, job issues, and expectations in the community and we are always happy to share that valuable knowledge with our clients.
We strongly believe that successful partnerships start with setting goals, and expectations. A better understanding of the client’s organizational culture, business, needs, work environment and fundamental recruitment requirements is pivotal for us. Defining job specifications, compensation packages are as important, and a key factor in smooth operation and hiring processes. We offer multiple types of partnerships ranging from sourcing for a single hiring position to full-cycle recruitment outsourcing.
Sourcing and Screening
A team of dedicated recruiters analyzes our large database, makes use of our extensive network of contacts, and uses advanced recruiting tools that are actively sourcing talent for hire within not only the game industry. Thorough screening is our next step to ensure a candidate’s profile is matching the client’s needs and requirements for employment.
In this step of the recruitment process, the candidate’s profile is shared with the client including a short brief with key information worth highlighting to expedite the initial go/no-go hiring decision. We take full ownership and facilitate the communication process between candidates and clients. Our recruiting team arranges interviews, sending updates and notifications about further steps, client’s instructions, and any other associated with the process tasks.
A dedicated recruiter/account manager maintains a relationship with the candidate throughout the recruiting and hiring process to ensure a smooth transition. Congratulations! You just got yourself a top-notch candidate hired.
