Job Vacancy Background
Work on ground-breaking multiplayer titles, push the boundaries of games technology and virtual worlds, or get to grips with some of the world’s toughest security challenges. If your ambitions are high, we’ll give you the tools, support and culture to take them even higher.
At Improbable, we’ve been venturing into unexplored territory for over a decade, seeking new ways to connect people and amplify their lives. We’re shaping virtual worlds of unprecedented scale for the gaming, web3, defence, and related sectors, creating world-changing technology from Morpheus to M2. With us, you’ll tackle questions that no one else is asking and find answers that define the future.
 
We’re leading the way in defining what the metaverse can be. This is where you get to explore interconnected, immersive, exciting worlds that have never been seen before and where you decide what the future looks like. Are you ready?

Your Opportunity:

  • Own the entire process of design within the product.  
  • Own the design of interlocking systems, guiding individual designers through the process of creating these designs and merging them together.
  • Expected to give and organize consistent and constructive critique on the quality of the game’s design.
  • Own the discipline expectations of the design team and ensure they are being delivered upon.
  • Drive the design team to create consistent, high quality designs/implementations that don’t block or reboot other departments, all within industry standard timelines.

Why You're Made For This:

  • Previously experienced in this role at a AAA developer.
  • Successful history of interaction with other development disciplines (e.g. design interactions with engineering, art, production).
  • Experienced with managing senior and junior designers across multiple design disciplines (e.g. level design, technical design, progression, single player, multiplayer, etc.).
  • Experienced with creating games with interlocking, extensible design systems within a multiplayer context.
  • Expert at high level design.
  • Experienced with hands-on work.
  • Experienced at designing, tuning, and expanding online multiplayer games.
  • Excellent communication skills with inspirational drive.
  • Excellent understanding of gameplay features and mechanics.
  • Excellent in self-managing workloads through Jira or another tracking methodology.
  • Excellent at setting the release/milestone goals and objectives for the entire design team.
  • 5+ years experience as a senior design lead.
  • Experience with Unreal would be preferable.
