Job ID: # Posted: 3 years ago

Avalanche Studios

My Client, a developer of well-known console and PC games, is looking for a Mid-Senior Level Designer to join their team in creating a AAA open world action game which is yet unannounced, you’ll also be working on one of their current AAA games. The team is moderately sized which will give you great opportunities to influence the end product while at the same time requiring you to push the boundaries of your discipline when needed.

As a Level Designer, you’ll be responsible for creating amazing locations in the game world while also scripting specific experiences the player will have in them. Think of it as being responsible for making both a mission and the setting where it takes place.

Responsibilities:  

  • Working with the level design team to formulate a pitch and seeing it through the approval process
  • Building the barebones version of the setting. From the rough shape and placement of buildings and roads to any important natural landmarks and vegetation
  • Placing NPCs, enemies, and all the important gameplay-specific props necessary to pull off your vision of the experience
  • Scripting the experience using the studio’s proprietary visual scripting language (similar to Unreal’s Blueprints) to make sure it engages the player just the right way
  • Making the right adjustments based on feedback and thoroughly debugging your work until it’s ready to make its way into the hands of millions of players

Requirements:

  • Experience as a Game/Level Designer on a AAA title, ideally an open world game
  • Experience tuning gameplay in a fighting or action/adventure game
  • Ability to analyse and understand how existing games are constructed
  • Strong knowledge of game design fundamentals
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Experience working with game editors such as Unreal/Hammer
  • Scripting experience/knowledge (Python, LUA or equal)

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