As a Level Designer at Embark, you will be responsible for creating the levels for a unique and innovative high quality 3D game. You will be working closely together with the artists, game designers and the rest of the game team to make great playgrounds for our game to take place. From concept, through paper design, greyboxing and final implementation you will be iterating on the levels to create the best canvas for varied and interesting gameplay, using the full range of the gameplay mechanics in our toolbox, including destruction, vehicles, character abilities, weapons and items, as well as the game modes, their rules and game objectives.

As a designer you are curious and eager to embrace novel ideas and concepts (your own and others’), and you enjoy working out how a new mechanic or player experience can be incorporated into your levels for emphasis and player volition. At the same time you are able to  leverage your experience on “what works” for player navigation, player vs. player flow, chokeholds and map control as well as how it is being presented to players. And you are an expert at analyzing, articulating and solving problems in level layouts, to achieve the best playing levels.

  • Be the gameplay champion for your levels
  • Widen the pool of player/world interactivity from a level design perspective
  • Design, present, mock-up and iterate on levels and ideas for levels
  • Work closely with the artists and tech to drive the aesthetics and performance of your levels
  • Some amount of scripting and setting up game modes on your levels
  • Responsive to player feedback, telemetry and live data to refine and hone the player experience and balance on your levels

We would love if you have

  • Passion for and experience with high quality hands-on 3D game building
  • Proficiency with the Unreal Engine 4, level building and some blueprint/scripting experience
