Salary on application

Do you have game design experience, and are you seeking a new job in Canada? Skillsearch is helping a gaming company find a Game Designer, and the role comes with an attractive salary and benefits package.  

As a Game Designer, you will be responsible for creating new game content and features while iterating on current gameplay mechanics. 

To give you an idea of how this flexible role would look and feel, here are some of the things you could expect to do: 

  • Transform ideas from the Product Owner into detailed and clear designs, communicated through documentation, spreadsheets and flows 
  • Develop features for the core gameplay, owning the balance and progression of the game 
  • Create epic game experiences and progression, using rewards and monetization as driving factors 
  • Provide actionable recommendations and work directly with programmers and artists to ensure game design mechanics and user experiences are correctly implemented. 

The ideal candidate will understand the value of metrics-driven design, approaching game design with retention and engagement in mind. You will be familiar with all the top mobile titles, specifically in the casual, f2p space. You will also need experience in projects at all stages of development, from prototyping, through production, to live ops. 

In return for your skills, you will be rewarded with an excellent salary and benefits package, including comprehensive health, dental and vision benefits, continuous education and access to the technology you need to do great things (hardware and software, PLUS an extra spend to use on your home office set up).
