  • Elicit, offer, prioritise, and integrate feedback


  • Extensive technical or game design experience
  • Shipped (at least) one title as Technical Game Designer (or equivalent role)
  • Experience developing large-scale / open-world / sandbox games is a plus
  • Strong grasp of text-based scripting (C# or equivalent language)
  • Ability to decompose design goals into succinct implementation requirements
  • Familiarity with scripting in a multiplayer environment is beneficial
  • Ability to operate autonomously in a dynamic environment
  • Willingness to learn new technical skills and techniques
