Lead Game Designer

About the role

We are looking to hire our Lead Game Designer (Unreal Engine 5) to join our humble start-up team. We have an ambitious yet realistic project ahead of us, and this is a critical role for us to bring our vision of interoperable gaming to life. We are well aware that this role will involve many unique and technical challenges that are not typically found in traditional game development. And we need a Lead Game Designer who is innovative, solutions focused and has a keen interest in solving unique challenges that come with interoperable characters, accessories, and other content.

If you are looking for something creatively challenging, fast-paced, and allows you to have a lot of creative ownership within a small team, then this opportunity to create a new gaming experience might be just for you.

We would love if you have

  • Experience working on shipped games from start to finish
  • Design experience with Player Expression, Cosmetic rewards, and Matchmaking
  • Interest in being a hands-on owner of our Walker World gameplay and game design
  • A player-first mentality with appreciation to the user experience and “finding the fun”
  • Designing around compelling gameplay loops, user retention and game economy
  • The ability to advise on methodologies, risks, scope and project needs for game design
  • Experience writing and maintaining Game Design Documents
  • Experience growing and empowering teams by leading with example
  • Strong English communication skills with a proactive and collaborative team attitude

At Walker Labs, we put value in our team. We offer very competitive salaries, encourage collaboration and entrust our employees with creative agency and ownership. We also pride ourselves in having a healthy work-life balance, and offer flexibility with family commitments and other personal matters where possible. . We invite you to join our team to venture into the unknown to bring new and exciting experiences to gamers.

Walker Labs is committed to inclusion and diversity. We ensure we give equal opportunities to all of our employees and provide a safe workplace where everyone is valued and heard — without regard to race, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or other characteristics.

If this role doesn’t quite match what you’re looking for we would still love to hear from you and how you feel you can bring value to our team and project. Feel free to apply to us via the contact form.
