Sharkmob wants to expand its Game Design team with a Senior Game Designer at our studio in Malmö, Sweden. In this role, you will design, own, and iterate on features in our upcoming unannounced AAA open-world action game.

We are looking for people who want to have fun at work, share ownership, and make smart decisions; responsible people who have a positive attitude, are passionate, and value professionalism. The games we are making, and the level of ambition we have, require a wide range of backgrounds and expertise. It takes lots of different people and we would love for you to be one of them!

At Sharkmob, we value teamwork, trust, motivation, and setting colleagues up for success, all of which are key to making great games and creating a healthy work environment. We strive to empower developers, and there will be plenty of opportunities to make your mark and impact the way we work.

"Our Game Design team is looking to bring on board another senior who can share their expertise to help level up our colleagues, and shape a (hopefully) industry-defining AAA Multiplayer Shooter. We're a pretty broad team with diverse experience, and you will get to work with a diverse set of culturally and skill-wise designers! The person who joins us will join a compassionate, creative, and bold team, and I want them to reflect those values as well" - Gustav Stigenius, Lead Game Designer on our second project.

Rundown of desired skills and experience:

  • Senior Designer with several years of professional experience in AAA games (approx. 10 but preferably more)

  • Can take ownership of an area or areas of the game

  • Expertise in one or several fields of game design

  • Can provide leadership to and develop others in the team

  • Make smart, well-informed choices when it comes to design

  • Work in a structured way

  • Be bold, creative, and compassionate

  • Driven by making a kick-ass AAA Multiplayer Shooter

As a candidate, you are:

Good at communicating and collaborating with directors, other designers, and developers from various disciplines. You like to find creative solutions and don’t mind thinking big and ambitious while keeping production realities in mind. You have a firm grasp of both hard and soft values involved in making the player experience as fun as possible. Quality and a focus on detail come naturally to you, and you know how to motivate and explain your designs and ideas. Feedback is core to your work, and you are good at both giving, receiving, and acting upon it.
