As a Game Designer on Victoria 3 you will be focused on designing engaging game content and meaningful player experiences for our Grand Strategy fans all around the world! Your work will have a direct and influential impact on the quality and feel of the game.

Narrative Focus
While all Game Designers at the Victoria 3 team work with designing and implementing features, mechanics and systems, for this role we are looking for someone with a special interest in narrative and content design.

At Paradox it’s important that you enjoy working in a team where everyone supports each other, and also that you are motivated by having the freedom and responsibility to take charge of a task and deliver. You thrive in a creative environment where people around you love their jobs and the games we make.

An interest in Paradox Grand Strategy Games is a great advantage, though we are mainly open to applicants with a couple of years of games industry experience.


  • Designing and implementing short narratives as well as other types of content for various gameplay systems

  • Writing text for in-game content in (American) English that thematically fits within the game

  • Engaging in research on related topics to find inspiration for crafting entertaining content that creates memorable gaming experiences

Required Qualifications

  • Fluent in English with an excellent command of written American English.

  • Experience with or interest in code-based scripting.

Desirable Qualifications

Actively collaborating with the people around you is key to this role. It’s important that you aren’t afraid to raise issues, and that you continuously look for improvement and try to inspire your colleagues. Since we are a fast-paced company, curiosity and an ability to get into things quickly are two important abilities.
