Reading Time: 2 minutes

Along with partners, NOVOMATIC has developed the Corporate Coding Academy (CCA), a training site for future company game developers, and will be searching for suitable participants as of the July 1. Starting in November 2018, the ‘coding heroes’ of tomorrow will take part in a high-quality, customized 6-month program and become Junior Game Developers.

We need game developers, and our plan is to use this program, unique in Austria, to ensure that our new recruits are perfectly trained,” Dr. Klaus Niedl, Global HR Director at NOVOMATIC, summarizes the idea behind this training initiative.

This unique training program for future game developers is taught by very experienced specialists from the software and game development industries. In addition to technical input, the participants will receive insight into game studios and their game development processes.

The 6-month training program is divided into three stages, each eight weeks long, and will take place at three game studios in Vienna (Greentube) and Gumpoldskirchen (NOVOMATIC). A combination of online and traditional training offers flexible ‘on the job’ learning, and is designed to help maintain a work-life balance. Building on previous knowledge, the Corporate Coding Academy teaches total game development and associated programming languages such as C++ and SDL/OpenGL. Participants will be selected based on a multi-step selection process; the training will not cost Corporate Coding Academy students anything.

As one of the largest gaming technology companies in the world, we also produce games for the digital-interactive sector. It’s the fastest growing sector in the entire gaming industry. Continued technological development is an important part of our company strategy, and we simply must have motivated and well-trained talents. This is why we founded the Corporate Coding Academy, in order to discover the game developers of the future, to train them, and, if possible, to keep them within the company,” said Niedl.

NOVOMATIC is also exploring a new selection process for the Corporate Coding Academy. A ‘serious game’ is used in the evaluation process in order to discover the technical and analytical competencies of the candidates in a playful and entertaining manner.

More information on applying (applications are open until July 31, 2018) and on the training program can be found at www.corporate-coding-academy.com
