Job description:

We are currently looking for reinforcements for a new project. We want you to be there when something great is created here and a strong team grows together. And you should occupy a key position – that of the game designer.

Your mission:

  • You design and develop game content, features and game mechanics
  • You bear the main responsibility for the creative direction of our game – starting with the creation of the initial vision statement, through the development of the design documents during pre-production, to the maintenance and continuous updating of the detailed design specifications during the main project production itself
  • You conceive and design the necessary prototypes and first playable versions of the game and thus lay the foundation for the later gaming experience
  • You work out a balanced approach that guarantees long-lasting fun
  • You implement all your ideas in close cooperation with the team’s programmers, graphic designers, sound designers and QA employees
  • Your documents and descriptions form the basis for project planning and the product backlog – and thus for all team members’ tasks and to-do’s

Your profile:

  • You have at least 3 years of experience with game design
  • You have a strong gaming instinct and know (almost) every game inside and out
  • You are creative – but not chaotic! You approach problems analytically
  • You work independently, in a structured manner and know how to organize and manage your work processes
  • Ideally, you have knowledge of tools such as Confluence, Nuclino or Asana
  • You have good written and oral communication skills (DE/EN)
  • You enjoy learning new skills and accompanying the growth of others
  • You want to drive a project forward and are versatile
  • You are not short of ideas and new impulses that you share with the team
  • You see feedback as an opportunity to grow by both accepting and giving it
  • You may even have gained experience with agile methods

What we offer you:

  • A job in what we believe is the most exciting, dynamic and best industry in the world
  • High degree of self-determination and lean management
  • Your own workplace, which you can freely design
  • The opportunity to become a world builder and create games with us that you can be proud of
  • A fantastic team
  • flexible hours
  • Promotion and opportunity for further training
  • Best coffee, fresh fruit
  • travel money
