- Collaborating with cross discipline teams on gameplay, world building, storytelling, and creating exciting, innovative and engaging levels

- Using player feedback to iterate and improve the gameplay experience

- Working closely with the Lead Designer and the project team on creating an unforgettable player experience.
  • We think you'll do great if you have:

- Strong creative skills and ability to analyse gameplay systems with critical judgement.

- Relevant experience designing avatar-centric 3D levels and gameplay.

- Task driven with a problem-solving attitude and capable of working on your own initiative.

- A creative, agile and player-first mindset, demonstrating you understand and can act as a champion for our audience, developing ideas with their needs in mind

- Excellent verbal and written communication skills

**Nice to have:**

- An understanding of The Sandbox and the metaverse
