About you:

We can’t create our games without you! Do you love mobile free to play games, both to create them and play them? If that’s a yes, then check out this quick video clip of what we do at ATA.

You will be given ownership over your work, as part of an incredible team of designers, engineers, artists, and community managers. Our two biggest games, Kingdoms of Heckfire and Party in my Dorm, have fantastic communities of over 100,000 dedicated players who love the games and are incredibly excited for the work we do. 

You will design, analyze and iterate on a live game which on any given day could mean working on events, balance, sales, economy design, content extensions, new heroes, new features, or fixes to the NUX. 

Have you…

  • worked on a live mobile free to play game for a few years?
  • used spreadsheets to organize and evaluate design data?
  • analyzed data and designed experiments to test out design theories?
  • extended or rebalanced existing content systems?
  • Led a team of game designers?

You may even have tried your hand at…

  • systems design, combat balance, merchandising monetization or economy design
  • Visual design/art and/ or narrative design or QA automation? 

If the above describes some of the things you enjoy, we’d love to hear from you. Check out a 2 min video clip of a few employees sharing why they love working at A Thinking Ape.
