Bungie
๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Bellevue, WA

Are you always finding yourself thinking about how to do things more efficiently and in a more cost-effective way? Are you constantly sharing how-toโ€™s, fix-itโ€™s, tips, and hacks with other people? Have you found yourself being an advocate for good collaboration practices? Are you drawn to game design? Do you seek an opportunity where you can combine your programming experience with your game design talent to solve challenging and interesting problems? If so, we have the job for you! Bungie is looking for a passionate, creative, and hard-working Senior Technical Designer for our Destiny team.

With the uncertainty and rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, most positions at Bungie are expected to onboard and work from home for a significant portion of 2021. In 2022, most Bungie employees will adopt a flexible schedule working from home part time (outside of positions identified as either 100% onsite or fully remote in WA & CA). Currently only a select range of positions are available for full-time remote work in WA & CA (please review location for details). Prospective employees located outside of CA & WA will need to establish WA state residency within 45 days of a start date. Bungieโ€™s work from home, flexible work schedule, and remote policy is subject to change at the companyโ€™s discretion.

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Help designers build workflows and systemize bespoke constructs, while providing an engineering minded perspective to ensure sustainable development
  • Drive collaborations with other disciplines (engineering, etc.) to ensure alignment on goals
  • Be the primary โ€œgo-toโ€ person for implementation of complex content that stretches the capability of existing systems and projects that require heavy design/engineer interactions
  • Willingness to dive into the not-so-well documented spaces between teams to understand the limitations and find creative solutions to align disciplines
  • Skillfully revise design specs to meet engineering constraints while maintaining the defined experience goals
  • This is primarily a workflow design role, but if needed you must be able to perform the duties of a software engineer. You will spend most of your time on scripted components, but for specific projects, some of your time may be dedicated to programming

REQUIRED SKILLS

  • Good design instincts and an understanding of designer tools UX
  • A willingness to take design and engineering feedback when it is offered and collaborate with team members from different disciplines
  • A strong desire for solving design problems; you are sociable and an information sharer
  • Be a leader within the department for cleanly implementing content with our designer tools and scripting language and solve creative/technical problems with design and engineering
  • Be able to define and maintain production pipeline, process, and workflow
  • Ability to drive tracking down problems in current systems, predicting problems in developing systems, producing test cases, and implementing fixes in systems and tools
  • Multiple programming languages: one of C/C++/C#/Java to a reasonable knowledge required
  • Experience with object-oriented programming

NICE-TO-HAVE SKILLS

  • Technical Degree (CS, IT, SE, CE, or equivalent work experience)
  • Experience in a non-design development role (artist, animator, audio, engineer, etc.)
  • Experience managing/leading a team of designers
  • Experience working on games as a service
