  • Collaborate with cross-disciplinary teams to integrate your assigned features

  • Follow up on features post-launch to improve, add, or remove components (in certain cases)
  • Stay up to date on best practices to keep up with the industry & develop your skills 
  • Run playtests and brainstorming within the company to ensure quality, playability, and fun
  • Identify trends and evaluate the suitability of our current games

What you'll bring

You are excited for Game Design, how a game "feels" and the player's experience. You are passionate about games, game-dev, and the craft of game design. You're proactive and offer creative solutions in the pursuit of your clearly defined goals. You should also be comfortable working within a multidisciplinary team, where you can each utilize your niche expertise to achieve a higher quality together.
