Lead Game Designer - Metaverse Solutions

Remote - UK

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.
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?
You will be part of the Metaverse Solutions group, the premier organisation for servicing and solving the problems of our metaverse. You will be working alongside experienced game developers familiar with all aspects of the game development lifecycle, including production, art, design, technology and operations. You will be working with notable names from the industry who are our partners and customers. As this is a growing area of Improbable, you will be directly involved in shaping both the technical and commercial direction of how metaverse experiences are developed and launched.

Your Opportunity:

  • Have heavy involvement in the creation of game designs, design processes, pipelines, and discipline.
  • Give constructive critique on the quality of the gameplay and visions.
  • Manage the discipline expectations of the design teams and ensure they are being delivered upon.
  • Manage the design teams to create consistent, high-quality designs/implementations that don’t block or reboot other departments, all within industry standard timelines.
  • Work closely with the Creative Director on transforming visions into deliverables.
  • Day-to-day management of the team to deliver exceptional quality design and experiences.
  • Foster and maintain effective relationships inside and outside the design department.
  • Flesh out high-level designs into design specifications, implementable features and its maintenance.
  • Report on (and represent) design effort and progress on own project(s). 
  • Analyse workload and productivity, flag issues and provide solutions.
  • Communicate well-considered, accurate delivery timescales for the teams, and can anticipate where issues may arise ahead of commitment.

Why You’re Made for This:

  • Good self-starter instincts and an ability to work with little to no oversight.
  • Skilled in designing and documenting core-loops features, and limited-time events within a multiplayer context.
  • Experienced with managing senior and junior designers across multiple design disciplines (e.g. level design, technical design, progression, single-player, multiplayer, etc.).
  • Excellent in self-managing workloads through Jira or another tracking methodology.
  • Experience in managing outsource partners.
  • Experience with Unreal would be preferable.
Everyone brings different experiences, perspective, knowledge and skills that makes each one of us brilliant. You don't have to meet all the requirements and experiences on this job advert to apply for and be successful in this role.
