Career at Black Forest Games

Our Values

Black Forest Games is part of the fastest-growing publisher in Europe, Embracer Group, and the biggest studio of THQ Nordic Vienna. Here in the south of Germany, directly at the French border, we combine the creative freedom and culture of an independent studio with the financial security of a big publisher.

We are a diverse team with a history of seeking long-term companions. We hire for the studio, not for the project. This is an important part of our company philosophy. Talent is always welcome, no matter where you are from. We offer a family-friendly work environment, a lot of flexibility, and the possibility to send your kids to an international school nearby.  All of this in a region where kids still play in nature and the school is only a bike ride away.

As an international team, we foster diversity. If candidates embrace that as well, this is a big plus for us. If you are the one to make our team even more diverse, we welcome you with open arms.

Black Forest Games is located in one of the warmest, most beautiful and wealthiest areas in the South of Germany, right at the border with France. Offenburg is a mid-sized regional town that is in the centre between 3 major cities in Germany and France. To the west is Strasbourg. A major city that hosts the European Parliament. Up to the north is Karlsruhe, a regional capital that hosts the German Supreme Court. To the South is Freiburg, which is said to be one of the greenest cities in Germany.

Offenburg itself is a gate to the Black Forest Region. From here it is easy to reach picturesque lakes and miles and miles of untouched nature. In terms of traffic, Offenburg is within a 30 minutes drive from three national and international Airports. You can reach Paris within 2 hours with the French high-speed train TGV. Offenburg Train Station is a stop for all German ICE high-speed trains. Via the A5 autobahn, you’ll reach Switzerland and the majestic Alps within 2 hours by car.  Up north, you’ll reach the regional capital of Karlsruhe, the host of the last Ikea ever to be built.
