We’re looking for a Technical Designer to work with our beloved Star Stable Online. Join our talented, multidisciplinary team to conceptualize and implement memorable experiences for our players in the magical world of Jorvik.

As a Technical Game Designer at Star Stable Entertainment ...

  • You work with Systems Designers and Engineers to build rapid prototypes for mechanics, story, gameplay, or systems, testing the feasibility of the designs and ensuring we as a team validate our gameplay hypothesis.
  • You actively collaborate with Designers, Artists, and Animators to help implement content, scripting, documentation, and balancing associated with the designs.
  • You identify opportunities and find solutions to help our players have the best possible experience.
  • In time, you take on the more advanced implementation and scripting needed on the team and provide guidelines and support for less experienced scripters.
  • In time, you actively contribute to improving peer-reviewing culture, as well as our tools, workflows, and pipelines.

To thrive in this role, we believe that ...

  • You understand what it means to work on a live product and will find ways to improve the game incrementally with careful brush strokes.
  • You’re user-focused, curious, and solutions-oriented.
  • You have experience as a Technical Designer or Design Generalist with a broad skill set, and a positive, self-driven mindset.
  • You are used to working with proprietary (non-commercial) game engines or tools.
  • You’re fluent in one or more text-based scripting or programming languages.
  • You also have experience with commercial scripting languages, and you strive for continuous learning and sharing of knowledge (as we want to learn from you, too).
  • You know how to test and debug your own creations, and you are used to being responsible for the quality of what you deliver.
  • You are used to seeking out feedback and iterating on designs based on insights from players, stakeholders, and team members.

 

 Currently, a lot of our employees and hiring teams are on their summer vacations, therefore it might take a bit longer than usual for us to review your application.
