  • Help developers become more efficient by providing them with appropriate scope and fidelity of assets from Figma 
  • Maintain source files and manage libraries
  • Request and provide feedback to fellow designers 

 What we’re looking for: 

  • 5+ years of experience in game development and/or tech companies doing UI design, visual design, interaction design, product design, or related field across different platforms (e.g., Desktop, mobile, 10-foot experiences) 
  • Success designing complex user experiences applied to both in-game engine experiences, as well as around-game meta-game systems 
  • Deep knowledge of fundamental visual design principles (e.g., layout, composition, grids, color theory, typography), including accessibility best-practices  
  • Experience with Figma, Photoshop, Illustrator, and other visual creation tools
  • Strong understanding of user journeys, use-cases, user flows, and information architecture within game environments
  • Effective communication and presentation skills  
  • Demonstrated ability to partner effectively with others and diplomatically resolve conflict
  • Ability to thrive in fast paced, ambiguous, team-oriented, start-up environments where learning and adapting is the norm
  • Ability to thrive and collaborate in a cross-functional Agile work environment, including the ability to embrace iterative product development 
  • A portfolio of work that showcases how you’ve done the above in the past 
  • Experience with Unreal, Unity, 3D software, or motion/ animation tools is a bonus
