  • Collaborate with and amplify the work of coders, artists, and other designers so that it reaches the player in the strongest form it can
  • Update the player’s perspective to features as they’re developed
  • Work well with others, be self-directed, and prioritise your own workload
  • Communicate across the design and wider development team, so that everyone feels invested and understands the direction of features as they’re developed
The skills and experience you’ll bring to the role…
  • Demonstrable ability to take an idea and turn it into a game or interactive experience, either as a professional shipped game, or as a self-published or university project
  • Hands-on skills, such as in mission scripting, systems implementation, or technical art
  • Ability to respond to and provide feedback constructively
  • Excellent written and verbal communication
  • Proactive approach to problem solving with good analytical skills
