Onsite team gatherings will stay, but Chimera Entertainment has built a distributed development setup for the post-pandemic times with hub entities in four countries.
WFH went better week after week, and the desire to keep the positives of the new remote work world grew within the team and the studio leadership. “We also discovered an unforeseen opportunity for hiring,” says Kluckner. “Chimera already was a diverse international team with people from 20 countries.” Building on this foundation, the HR and legal team started looking into permanent work-from-home frameworks in the four countries Finland, Italy, Spain, Romania - respecting the regional requirements in labor law. In early 2022, Poland and Portugal are about to follow. “18 months later, we have a stable setup in place, which is a great tool for attracting a wider talent pool than ever before. If candidates do not consider relocating, we are ready to take them onboard where they are.”, says the Managing Director.
Former Remedy Producer Wiczniewski joins as Project Lead
Raimund Wiczniewski is the latest example, reinforcing Chimera Entertainment as a Project Lead. Wiczniewski joins from Remedy Entertainment, where he worked on games like Control and Alan Wake Remastered. “I have been talking to Chris from time to time for the last two years about me joining Chimera, and now I am excited that it is finally happening,” he says. Besides his enthusiasm about Chimera’s project pipeline, being able to keep living in Helsinki spurred his decision.
Raimund Wiczniweski has joined Chimera Entertainment in the new multi-country setup.
