Hamburg is not only a hotspot for the development of computer games, but also for numerous vocational schools and universities that offer courses specifically for future professionals in the games industry. For students and career starters, the exchange with experts in the games industry is essential in order to know the requirements in the individual disciplines and to prepare for them. To intensify this exchange, Gamecity Hamburg offers the event format Game Starter.

For the third installment of Game Starter we will focus on the job of a Community Manager. Four experts will report on their careers, their jobs, and answer the participant’s questions. They will talk about the everyday challenges in community management, the value put into this field by their four very different companies, ways into the job, their experiences in the games industry, and things they would have liked to know at the beginning of their careers.

Our four industry experts are:

Carolin Wendt - Community Manager (Germany) at CD PROJEKT RED
Gabriela Galbier – Team Lead Community Management at gamigo
Sebastian Grun – Director CRM & PR at Goodgame Studios
Sinikka Compart – Producer at Mooneye Studios

The event is free of charge and is organized as a moderated video conference via Zoom. The moderation is done by Dennis Schoubye, Project Lead Gamecity Hamburg. Participants can ask their questions via text or voice chat and only need a device that can play the video chat and a stable internet connection. No webcam or microphone is required.
