If industry and universities collaborate it benefits the students most of all. The German government acknowledged this and started the “Deutschlandstipendium” a few years ago. The program is a national collaboration between universities, the government and the German economy with over 14.000 participants in 2013. Of course, big companies support this, but there is only a few startups. Wooga is one of them – here is why…
One year to the day Wooga launched its very first hidden object game on Facebook.com, Pearl’s Peril.

At Wooga, we’ve done Game Jams before. Three days of intense, coding, drawing, prototyping and, presumably, sleeping. They’re super fun and all of our studios gave them a thumbs up. Given that we were in a new year, we wanted to top it.
At the end of the week January turns into February, and that can only mean one thing! Valentine’s Day presents that you haven’t purchased yet! That, and of course, Casual Connect in Amsterdam.
On a snowy winter’s day 5 years ago, a little something called Wooga was brought into the world thanks to two men in a Smart car, racing across Berlin.
Here at Wooga we’ve always put a big emphasis on the ol’ work/life balance. But how could we prove that? Well, maybe with a single number: 13. This year 13 Wooga employees became parents.
So for all the Wooga babies of 2013 we’d like to say a big “Hello!” and hope you enjoy your very first Christmas.
And of course to everyone else out there: We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!!
2013. Wow! What a year for Wooga! We’ve brought more fantastic international talent into the company, doubled the number of games we release, supercharged our marketing and exploded the languages of our games. In short, it’s been an awesome year.
One example: 2.6 million words were translated – that is more than the Harry Potter Saga. Twice. That’s like 14 Harry Potter books.

Last night Wooga’s HR team took home the prestigious HR Excellence award in the “Employee Engagement” category.
Beating some big names to the trophy, Wooga convinced the jury with their Feel Good initiatives and the passion and heart in their application. Over the past year, the team has aimed to attract the world’s best talent to work in Berlin as well as keeping those folks happy and content in the workplace. All that hard work was rewarded last night.
But what of the morning after the night before? After what seems to have been a night of fabulous celebrations it’s a bit more quiet than usual in HR today, with bottles of aspirin and a few pairs of sunglasses in spite of the grey Berlin December day. Well done, Wooga HR!
