Who are “we”?

Iceberg Interactive is an international games publisher, located in Haarlem. We work closely with development teams from all over the world and we sell our games predominantly through digital platforms. These include Steam, EPIC Games Store, PlayStation Store, Xbox Marketplace and Nintendo eShop.

About the position

As a Game Testing & Assessment Assistant you’ll work closely with our Producer (hi, that’s me, writing this right now), and you’ll test games for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. You’ll also support the Business Development Director (that’s Raymond, he’s nice too) with review potential new games for our future line-up. This position puts you right in the middle of it all, which gives you a great impression of what production, development and publishing processes are within the games industry.

Expect to do the following:

  • Test games
  • Help test new games (assessments)
  • Help out the producers with executive tasks
  • Writing short assessments of in-development builds
  • Doing short comparative market research (looking at other games)
  • Tracking and documenting bugs using our existing tools
  • Testing DLCs, patches and updates
  • Brainstorm about solutions to game design problems
  • Play a bunch of games

What we have to offer:

  • A very informative internship with a lot of daily variety (four to six months, 40 hours a week)
  • An international work environment
  • Good counseling and the amount of responsibility that suits you
  • An informal and relaxed atmosphere
  • Lot’s of freedom for your own initiatives and solutions
  • You’ll fatten up your library of games
  • Your name will be in the credits of all the games you’ll work on
  • A compensation of €350,- a month

What we’re looking for:

  • You’re a MBO/HBO/WO (bachelor and up) student.
  • You play games. Indie, AAA, casual; the wider your field of interest, the better.
  • You know your way around social media, forums and other platforms.
  • You’re interested in the industry behind the games: the people, the business and how they’re made.
  • You work accurately, have an opinion and aren’t afraid to share it.
  • The direction of your education is Game Design/Development/Interaction Design/Media Studies or anything else relevant to this internship and company.
  • You are available five days a week (40 hours) during your internship (with the exception of a day here and there that you need to report back to school).

 The internship is for a duration of four to six months and starts in September 2020.
