In February this year, Activision-Blizzard announced that more than 800 employees would be losing their jobs as part of company-wide lay-offs. Now, it looks like Blizzard is beginning to re-hire for some of those roles, despite axing them just a few months ago. Earlier this week, a job listing for a Hearthstone community manager was posted on the developer’s careers page. The role asks for “an experienced community manager passionate about the gaming industry, player communities, live events, and player relationships.” Requirements include a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field, as well as “minimum three years’ experience with brand communication, forums, and social media.” Following Blizzard’s post, former employees (who we have not named) responded on Twitter. One ex-Hearthstone employee – who says that they were laid off along with their entire team back in February – said that the listing was “shameful,” and referred to the community managers who are still looking for new employment in the wake of the lay-offs. Another said that “hundreds” of former employees are still looking for work.
