Job Description:

Associate Technical Designer - High Moon Studios

Great Games Start with Great People! This is a significant time in our company's history - and one of the most exciting times to join us! We are seeking a talented, self-directed game designer with strong technical abilities and a passion for problem solving. Technical Designers are a vital connection between Design and Engineering, able to communicate and engage with both disciplines "in their language." Technical Designers should have experience with a wide variety of scripting languages and game engines and should be comfortable learning "on the fly." Technical Designers should be able to absorb a large scripting base quickly and use that knowledge to inform and empower other designers.

If that sounds like you, please apply to join our award-winning team. We can't wait to hear from you!

Your Mission:

  • Work closely with designers, engineers, and other content creators to create compelling gameplay systems

  • Solve complicated problems creatively while considering design needs versus production realities

  • Drive gameplay systems from paper concepts all the way to shippable products

  • Rapidly prototype and iterate on experimental gameplay in order to "find the fun"

  • Act autonomously to track down issues or improvement areas and implement novel solutions

  • Help develop and maintain a robust set of scripting solutions that empower content designers

Player Profile:

  • Experience with several different scripting languages (Python, Java, C#, Lua)

  • 1+ years game industry experience

  • Solid understanding of gameplay mechanics and the game design process

  • Passion for designing systems, mechanics, and meta-game loops

  • Excellent written, verbal, and electronic communication skills

Bonus Points:

  • Technical degree or work experience in a technical design role

  • Experience with the Call of Duty engine (Radiant) or scripting language (GSC)

  • Experience with multiple game engines

  • Ability to read and understand C++

  • Experience developing a networked multiplayer game

  • Experience scripting complex animated sequences
