  • Spearhead the collaborative process with other designers, artists, animators and engineers to create levels that are not only incredibly fun, but look great and run well
  • Awareness over scope and risks of level features, and prioritize and self-manage to meet deadlines

Requirements

  • Relevant professional experience in multiplayer level design (FPS games or similar).
  • An exceptional portfolio of work that exemplifies the creation of high quality level designs for multiplayer FPS games.
  • Ability to display process work such as paper maps, grey box levels, and documentation.
  • Expert within the Unreal Engine or similar engines.
  • Experience with Unreal blueprints or other visual scripting systems
  • Knowledge of building levels with modular assets.
  • Excellent communication, time-management, and organizational skills.
  • Ability to define playtest goals and to process feedback for iterations and improvements.

  • Fluent in spoken and written English
