Recapping Values Value’s Experience at Games Gathering Kyiv 2023

By 17.08.2023Blog

First of all, thanks to the organizers of the conference for the courage and determination to hold an offline event during a full-scale war in the country. “As it turned out, many members of Ukrainian gamedev missed such meetings and networking – I did not expect such a large number of people” – says Sasha Kononenko, Lead Recruitment Consultant at Values Value.

We visited the conference as quite a big team of 4 people this time…
– Anna Vashchenko, Lead Recruitment Consultant, has shared her insights about Ukrainian gamedev in 2023.
– Sasha Kononenko participated in the panel discussion “What are the problems with finding a job as a game designer?”.
– Stepan Holubiatnikov, Business Assistant, has visited his first in a life gamedev conference.
– We organized an offline and online career wall at the conference, where a lot of Ukrainian companies were able to attract top talent.
– Celebrated the birthday of Sergey Mynchenko, our Talent Sourcer.
– And last, but not least, we took a lot of great photos and more important magnificent memories together.

Emotions are great.
Sasha perfectly describes it saying: “It was a great opportunity to meet acquaintances whom we knew only through the laptop screen, talk with cool specialists in the field of game design in the panel discussion “What are the problems with finding a job as a Game Designer”, listen to the report of my colleague Anna about changes in Ukrainian game development and see a new stream of juniors with burning eyes, eager to get inside the vortex of our industry.

It is very cool that different companies fundraised for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, thus reminding everyone, thanks to whom we were able to gather at the conference and feel protected.

This event showed that conferences in Ukraine should take place, – gamedev specialists need this breath of fresh air!”.

We definitely agree with Sasha and are already looking forward to the next conferences in our country!
