We Want You A new world and a new journey await you. It is a world different from any other Blizzard has created. If you’re a passionate game developer, and, well, a good human being, then we’d love to talk to you. We have a new AAA survival game in the works, set in a new IP for PC/Console. It’s going to be amazing, and we’d love to bring you along for the ride. Together, we’ll build something big, bold, and beautiful. As a Senior UX UI designer on the team, you will be working closely with our UX lead, game designers, engineers, and art leads to create outstanding gameplay experiences through clean, intuitive, and accessible UI. You will be an advocate of the players, championing usability and setting a high bar for Blizzard quality user experiences.
We believe our team is good. Really good. Granted, we’re obviously biased. But we also believe there are lots of designers out there who can make us even better. You could be one of those people. If you’re looking for a team where inclusion, thoughtfulness, empathy, professionalism, and collaboration are all seen as critically important, we believe our team could be a phenomenal fit for you.
