Senior Game Designer (RPG Studio)

  • Application Deadline: May 31, 2019
  • Stockholm

Our goal is to create the world's best mobile RPGs, and you will have a key role. One of our teams is busy creating a new tactical combat RPG and is in need of a Senior Game Designer. We’re looking for someone that can take initiative in creating new systems and designs that engage our players for years to come. If you have passion and experience working on F2P and RPG systems, want to work with a team of like-minded industry professionals, and believe the team is more important than the individual to reach our goals, this might be the role for you.

This is a key position in reaching our goals, apply now to be part of this exciting adventure!

What you’ll take under your wings:

  • Design best-in-class mobile RPG experiences

  • Work on all aspects of the game including combat systems, metagame balance, social and PvP systems, reward structures, and monetization

  • Write documentation, create UI mockups, and balance economy models

  • Communicate your design clearly and collaborate with artists, programmers and fellow game designers

  • Create and lead the execution of game concepts that meet or exceed the technical, creative and commercial aims of the project

  • Continuously play, analyze and discuss competitor games to remain an expert in the target genre

We’d love if you have these feathers in your cap:

  • 5+ years experience working as a game designer

  • Commercial experience working on F2P mobile games, preferably mid-core or hardcore games

  • Experience in creating and leading game concepts and features

  • Experience working with social or multiplayer systems that affect the entire player-base

  • Experience creating and balancing competitive play

  • A genuine passion for F2P and mobile games

  • Equal parts ambitious and humble

  • Open to feedback and eager to learn and apply new skills

  • Strong interest and belief in data-driven approach to support & validate intuition

We want the best team, not necessarily the best individuals, so we’re looking for team members who want to work on problems worth solving. If you’re wondering if you should apply or not, we hope you do.
