Associate Game Director – AAA Open World Action Game – Sweden – Permanent

Location: Malmo, Sweden Salary: Negotiable

Job ID: #38242 Posted: 2 months ago


OPM’s client, a developer of world leading AAA console and PC games, is currently looking for an Associate Game Director to join their team in Sweden.

They’re building an original AAA game and are excited to let everyone discover it first-hand. The Associate Game Director will work closely with the Game Director to make sure that all parts of the game come together into a fun and engaging experience.

As an Associate Game Director, you will perform similar functions to those of the Game Director, but not always at the same time or in the same place. You will focus more intensely or longer on an area or stand in for the GD in day-to-day functions. You will also help make sure that the game direction is executed on all levels.


  • Coordinating the design leads
  • Conceiving, implementing, and improving the design process
  • Analysing playtest feedback and suggest changes
  • Reviewing the build, specific features and designs
  • Targeting expert deep dives into key design challenges
  • Compiling design documentation and communicate general or specific game information to internal and external parties
  • Working closely with the Gameplay Producer to define, plan, prioritise and execute on the content and work needed to execute the Mission Direction


The quintessential game developer, you love games and gaming; you love game design (both theory and hard practical challenges) and you love being on a team of passionate creators working on something you know will blow people away. You combine a strong analytical and systemic mindset with excellent intuition for making the overall game experience fun. This makes you comfortable with solving both highly specific design challenges and broad “the game feels off” issues.

  • Extensive knowledge about game design principles, “solo” and “Online” games and their structure, as well as player motivation and segmentation theory
  • Extensive experience making video games as a lead game designer
  • At least one AAA game shipped as a design lead or similar position

The successful candidates will receive a competitive salary dependant on their skills and experience.
