The ability to create experiences is magical… but everyone should be able to do it! We have the ambition to realize this dream by creating exciting games, communities, and building empowering technologies and tools. If you are passionate about our mission, bring your expertise, enthusiasm and ridiculous ideas. Everyone at Embark contributes as game makers and culture creators. Your willingness to strive for the unexpected, to succeed, fail, learn, and enjoy it, is essential to our success.
As Design Director, your focus is on enabling the design team to consistently perform at their best by providing clear, precise direction with enough guided wiggle room to maximize autonomy and creativity, leading to a cohesive and elegant player experience. You empower designers to perform and surprise, ensuring our design culture is based around trust, innovation, iteration, learning, collaboration and sharing.
As a manager, you inspire, guide and mentor a team of designers, nurturing a work environment where they can thrive and grow both individually and as a team. We believe that you’re an excellent collaborator with many years of experience working with multiple game crafts, and have a deep understanding of the specific challenges each craft strives to meet. This makes you a pragmatic designer that can evaluate, adapt, compromise, and positively work towards solving problems across multiple axis. In addition to working on a project, you’re also an evangelist for game design across the company with an ambition to improve the design culture, process and thinking among all of our game makers.
