Guillaume de Fondaumière of Heavy Rain studio Quantic Dream with David Smith

 In 2003, Guillaume de Fondaumière joined the video game development company Quantic Dream as Chief Operating Officer. He currently is co-CEO with David Cage, the founder and creative figure of Quantic Dream, CFO and executive producer of Fahrenheit, and Heavy Rain. He was elected President of the French video game trade body Association des Producteurs d’Oeuvres Multimédia (APOM) (today Syndicat National du Jeu Vidéo or SNJV) in April 2005 and was re-elected in June 2006 for two years. He has been appointed Chairman of the European Games Developer Federation. Guillaume met with David Smith from Interactive Selection at the recent Develop Conference in Brighton, UK.  His tip for joining Quantic Dream: ” We are interested in candidates that are really specialist, that own something very special, very specific that really want to develop there know how at the highest level, so that is the first thing. The second advice is play our games. Try to understand what you can bring to the studio. We are a relatively demanding group whenever we ask a candidate to come to the company we ask a lot of questions about themselves, how they would see themselves in our organisation. I would recommend them to be prepared to “pass the test” but also be themselves. It is very important for us to have people that are genuine we want to see they are passionate about what they do. We want to make sure they can really fit into an international team that is really striving for the best game.”
