Game Designer

  • Applications are considered on a rolling basis
  • Stockholm

3 years after release, Angry Birds 2 is still one of the most played games on the App Store and Google Play Store. We want to continue this trend and we need an additional game designer to make that happen! Being part of the team does not only mean a lot of responsibilities but also having your ideas and additions being played by millions of people, every day.

Angry Birds 2 is more than meets the eye. It’s not only the best slingshot game in the industry, but also a game with depth. Depth that has proven to be very successful with our players, new and old. Upgradable birds and slingshots, spells, hats, clan battles, global leaderboards, seasonal events and the Tower of Fortune are just some of the current features. With your help and expertise, we want to discover the “next big thing” within Angry Birds 2!
