About the Studio

Are you looking for the next challenge in your career? Are you in love with game development and design and would like to guide others through that path?

This offer is for you.

Join one of the most renowned mobile video game studios in the world. Known for their puzzle and logic games, they are looking for a Senior Game Designer who can improve and lead the way in their next project.

Responsibilities and Requirements

As a Senior Game Designer, you will work with an A+ mobile team to help grow and develop the studio’s current live titles. You will collaborate with the project’s other designers to learn the ins and outs of the game’s systems, design philosophy, and content creation.

You will also engage with the game’s current player base, connecting with the community to inform your design decisions and understand what they want to play. Of course, being part of the overall design pipeline means you will provide feedback and insight to designers, artists, and producers in the studio — either in proposed or live designs that might need adjustments.

  • Develop exciting new features that raise both engagement and monetisation
  • Design new objects, events, and other supporting content

  • Give and receive feedback from anyone in the studio — we work as a team, no matter what you do or where you come from
  • Strive for the highest standards of quality in both design and experience development while being a beacon of light and mentorship for your fellow designers
  • Interact and engage with the community via Discord or similar channels
