Job Description

mustardVIZ is partnered with one of the UK's most quirky, BAFTA award-winning indie gaming studios, who are looking to bring in a new Design Director to their team of 80. The team are known as the immensely talented people behind several critically acclaimed hits, many of which have become an integral part of gaming culture. They are looking for an entrepreneurial spirit to kick start the proceedings with 2 brand new unannounced titles, driving the concept alongside the studios quirky brand.

As a DD, help lead this effort and collaborate with the product teams, game designers, and other stakeholders to reach levels of award-winning excellence and create the next big hit. You are a veteran games designer leader, with a proven track record of building game design teams to deliver critical and commercially successful games. You'll have a deep understanding of design mechanics and systems, as well as game direction and vision - being able to lead and own the studio's creative strategy and capabilities (including idea generation and all-company game jams). 

In return, you'll be part of a movement, working fully remotely with the option to work within the London studio if you desire. You'll be offered a comprehensive benefits package alongside the ability to lead and coordinate potentially huge titles - who knows, it could be your name in flashing lights at the BAFTAs!

If this has peaked your interest, then call me for a confidential chat about your situation - it's never been a better time to negotiate a new role within such an exciting company. I'll be by the phone.
