Are you eager to shape the stories and legends of an entirely new gaming world? Do you have the skills to lead and inspire a team of Narrative Designers to craft compelling tales in an exciting and intricate new universe? If you’re nodding yes, then you can’t afford to miss out on this!

We are searching for a creative and detail-oriented Narrative Lead to join our team. You’ll play a pivotal role in defining the world, lore, and backstory of our fresh game IP. With Ubisoft Scalar’s power, the game will tap into nearly limitless computing resources, pushing the boundaries of your creativity to develop dynamic and immersive narratives for the gaming landscapes of the future.

What you will be doing:

Narrative Ownership

  • Develop and own the Narrative vision of the game following the over-arching vision set by our Creative Director.
  • Ensure the narrative elements are clear and consistent throughout all aspects of the game.
  • Work with our programming teams to make sure we have the narrative tools and systems needed to effectively communicate our narrative to the players.


  • Craft a strategy to effectively communicate the narrative, history, and lore of the world.
  • Collaborate with our World Team to create a cohesive visual language that narrates our world’s story.

Narrative Leadership

  • Grow a small Narrative team over the course of the project and set the standards for our narrative and writing quality.
  • Represent Narrative in cross-discipline planning throughout all phases of the project.

We embrace diversity and want you to grow with us on this journey. So please don’t hold back from joining us, even if you feel you don’t match every requirement. We are offering you larger questions to answer and new areas to investigate. Here, you’ll find a welcoming environment where your contributions are appreciated and your enthusiasm for your role and the industry is shared and celebrated.

We would love if you:

  • Are a team-oriented Narrative Lead with experience of leading and managing Narrative Designers.
  • Understand the full game dev cycle, what to anticipate and what it means to ship a major game title.
  • Have experience with implementation in visual scripting systems.
  • Can seamlessly integrate Narrative elements throughout the world and its systems.
  • Can clearly communicate your team’s needs and goals to the wider development team

This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join a leading organization in developing more interesting game worlds. You will be part of a passionate and collaborative team and receive market-based compensation while having the opportunity to grow and develop your skills and career. If you are ready to take this on, send us your CV together with your portfolio and tell us how you are a perfect match for our role.

Apply to make it yours

Making good games takes effort, making great games takes a different type of thinking and is the key to unlocking our collective potential. We also want to ensure our developers reflect our players, so even if you don’t tick all the boxes above but you have a willingness to learn, we're eager to hear how you can contribute. We’re located at Fenix Stockholm, a re-imagined modern office block in the inner city district of Hagastaden.
