Game Designer

Description

We are looking for an experienced and talented Game Designer who is self-motivated, goal-oriented and a strong team player to join our team at TinyBytes. If you are someone who has a tremendous amount of innovative game concept ideas that you would like to work with a world-class team to develop, in a culture that emphasizes independence and learning, in the world's largest gaming market, then this is a perfect role for you.You take pride in your work, and know what it means to take responsibility and deliver quality-focused games. We work in a dynamic and agile environment – meaning we don't have long development cycles but instead we release new features, events and improvements to the game multiple times a year. We don't have strict processes that we need to follow but instead we create the process and deadlines independently as a team.

We are the creators of Massive Warfare, the ultimate multiplayer multi-vehicle war shooter mobile game with over 20 million downloads and Top 30 Grossing Action Game on Google Play. At TinyBytes currently no one has the title of "Game Designer". This is because most of the design decisions are made as a group effort. Everyone in the team is responsible for delivering the best possible experience. So whether you're an artist, programmer or community manager, you can contribute to the design. While decisions are made like this, it's still important to have someone who can lead and drive the overall vision and makes sure that every system in the game is tuned and plays well together with the rest. This person is the go-to whenever there is a question about a new feature, existing design or an event going on in the game, including level design, economy design, retention features and monetization features.

TinyBytes stands out for a culture of healthy and creative work, where you can develop and feel fulfilled by your achievements whilst you experience teamwork with colleagues of significant international experience in different areas of video game development. You will launch games for the global mobile market with specific objectives in terms of delivery times, quality, number of downloads, active users, player retention and revenue.

We work remotely, establishing clear responsibilities, delegating tasks, giving and expecting work autonomy, continuous communication, support in different tools and flexible hours. This is a home office opportunity, so you can work from your home or a local coworking space.

We have a stellar team. We have a creative, innovative environment, with first-class professionals. We offer great benefits such as competitive market salary, incentives for performance and results, vacations, health coverage, worker insurance, flexible hours and remote work.

If you have the requirements and want to progress professionally in the video game industry, apply now! Join TinyBytes and become part of the first line team that will be a leader in the development of mobile video games worldwide.
