We’re collaborating with Disney and Lucasfilm Games on a new story-driven open-world video game set in the beloved Star Wars galaxy. This is a lore we love and want to do justice with a game and story that bring both new and lifelong fans on an immersive and outstanding journey that will stay with them for years.

We're looking for an experienced Game Designer focused on AI to help us create a wide range of enemies and non-hostile NPCs for our latest project.

You'll join an experienced international team, work closely with an experienced team of designers and multiple other disciplines as part of our unannounced project. In this position, you're going to have a major impact on the quality, design, and overall fun-factor of our game.

This is a permanent position based in Malmö Sweden and requires working onsite. We kindly ask you to apply with your CV and message to the hiring manager in English. Applications will be reviewed whilst the job ad is posted. 

What you'll do:

  • Designing enemy archetypes as well as creatures and non-hostile characters
  • Collaborating with developers to define and realize the combat core loop
  • Taking NPCs from design to release quality and implementation
  • You'll work in-engine; tweaking, scripting, and tuning features, and helping define what tools you need to do so
  • Maintaining and evolving the overall gameplay vision together with the Game Director, Lead Game Designer, and the rest of the Design Team.

What you'll bring:

You are passionate about games, game-dev, and the craft of game design. You're proactive and offer creative solutions in the pursuit of your clearly defined goals. You should also be comfortable working within a multidisciplinary team, where you are expected to contribute with your expertise to achieve the highest quality possible. You have high standards in everything you do, and a devotion to creating the best possible player experience.

Besides the above we’re looking for someone aligned with our core values and the following skills and experience:

  • Experience working with enemy AI/NPCs in a story-driven open-world game;
  • Several years proven work experience with major titles credited to your name;
  • As a Senior you should also have experience mentoring your junior colleagues and driving the development of features designated to you;
  • Absolute passion for playing and making games, especially RPG and Action-Adventure games;
  • Knowledge of an iterative development process and rapid prototyping;
  • Knowledge of node-based tools/engines and/or programming/scripting.
