Gameloft

Senior Mobile Game Designer

${ timestamp }} · 
Gameloft
🇭🇺 Budapest

What will you do here?

  • This is a position requiring a mix of strong economy and marketing knowledge with passion for analytical game design and the emerging free-to-play business model.
  • As a senior game designer your responsibility is to understand how a 'game as a service' works from a user standpoint, how do they behave in it, so you can provide constant recommendation on improving the service.
  • To do this, pre-release, you’re able to improve the design of the main features a game will offer, define metrics that allow you to individually measure their impact in a given title, and work closely with the development team.
  • Once the game is launched, you’re able to analyze the collected data and report which are the performing / underperforming aspects of the game, find the reasons of why, and then provide suggestions for further improvements / solutions to problems.

How are you going to work and when can you start?

  • You will work full time, 8 hours a day, with a declared employment contract.
  • You can arrive by 9 in the morning, but if that’s too early, no one will mention anything if you arrive before 10:30
  • Your direct lead will be the producer of the project, and the colleagues you work most closely with will be: 2D Artists, 3D Artists, Designers and Animators.
  • The sooner you can start, the better! Of course, if you have a notice period, we will wait for you

What will happen to you on the first day and in the first 3 months?

  • On your first day, we will introduce you to everyone on the team. The game’s producer will tell you more details you about the game you will be working on, while the designers will tell you what the designer team is currently working on
  • Also on the first day you will receive your onboarding plan, which gives you details about the things you will be doing and what’s expected of you over the next 3 months
  • Right from the start you will also find out who will be your assigned buddy, the colleague who will help you during your first few months to have a great time here. You can ask him anything at any time, be it things about the project or about what’s the best place to eat at in the area (there are many cool places to eat at nearby)
  • During your trial period, we will continue to support you and give you feedback on your work. And of course, we’d love it if you also shared your opinion and suggestions with us

Qualifications

What are the qualifications I need for this position?

  • At least 4 years of experience as a Game Designer (on the mobile game market)

  • Ability to set up a game design architecture, create the backbone of a complete game in terms of game design, maintain product vision
  • Strong sensitivity to gameplay and game design, understanding how to build needs and emotions in the context of a game
  • Strong analytical and formal thinking, able to break problems down in their key variables and identify the relations between them
  • Statistic knowledge, able to formulate ratios and indexes specific to each game, identifying specific weaknesses and strengths in its economy design

Additional Information

What will happen when you apply?

You can apply with your English CV and with your portfolio. We will look at what you have created so far.
Please note that our system can't handle files that exceed 10 MB, so if your portfolio exceed the file limit, please upload it to eg. Google Drive or Dropbox and send us an access link.
No cover letter is required. But if you usually play mobile, you can write down what :-)

At Gameloft, we believe in diversity, so no applicant will be discriminated against based on criteria such as gender, age, gender identity, religion, nationality, etc.

Your CV will be reviewed by our Studio Manager and our Lead Game Designers and if they find it relevant, one of our colleagues from HR will contact you.

Next there will be a home test, followed by a chat with one of our HR colleagues and later with our Studio Manager and one of our Lead Game Designers. They will give you specific details about the job and you can ask them anything you are interested in knowing about working here. As you will be in our studio, you will have a chance to look into the Gameloft environment and atmosphere as well.

The whole process usually takes 2-3 weeks, but in the current global situation it could be slightly longer.

If the test fails, we will notify you within 2-3 days. You will certainly receive feedback from us about the process, but you can also track the status of your application through our application system.
