Job Description

Are you inspired by epic camera moments such as the ‘Hitchcock Zoom’ or by the thrill of driving a super car? Due to summer holidays the interview process won't start until beginning of August.

Our Mission

We are looking for an Associate Game Director within 3C’s (Camera, Control, Character) to lead our game design team on an ambitious unannounced project here in Stockholm Sweden.

As our Associate Game Director, you’ll understand the fundamentals of 3C’s and be able to set vision for and deliver on core moment-to-moment gameplay loops. You will adjust and balance design and game mechanics to bring imaginary concepts into play. During our production phase, you’ll alternate between a resolution of high detail and high level. You will drive the full development cycle of your area and identify how all elements work together and refine them to uncover game experiences that are as immersive as they are fluid for our players.

Our Motive

We know you have fantastical powers and for us it is important you get to show your magic. To do this, we're creating strong autonomous teams with independent decision-making, and freedom to try out new things and show why it works. For us it is important that you get to shine by being creative: to take deliberate decisions, poke hole in things when required, to make new mistakes and care for your craft by honoring your commitments.

In this role, you’ll join a group of Associate Directors within the Design craft and will report to the Game Director. Collaborating within your craft, but also cross-functionally, you'll direct and generate briefs for a team of complementary skills and abilities to deliver design ready to be experienced.

Your responsibility

  • Design functionality according to our design direction and creative vision, e.g. controls, movement, combat systems, weapon attributes, enemy combatants, etc.
  • Lead a multidisciplinary team through the full development cycle
  • Collaborate with transversal teams to integrate required features
  • Develop and iterate on prototypes and evaluate performance
  • Account for technical and production constraints
  • Identify and manage risk & uncertainty associated with 3Cs
  • Create and maintain design documentation to guide collaborating teams
  • Ensure the follow-up after launch in order to improve, add or sunset features

Job Requirements

Qualifications

Your experience

  • You have significant experience as a game designer on combat, controls and camera mechanics on AAA action games
  • You are a natural leader who understands many aspects of game development and able to unite a multidisciplinary team behind a creative vision
  • You know how to visualize behaviors and game situations on paper and best practices for prototyping iteratively
  • You are curious while analytical, alert to new developments and trends and know how to best propose changes by adhering to consumer expectations
  • You have good understanding of how to communicate effectively and know when to question yourself
  • You are used to working in an international environment and to express yourself in English.

Apply now to make it yours!
