Bungie is seeking a highly technical, creative, and team-oriented Combat Design Lead who is excited to build our next great IP.

Do you obsessively replay great combat encounters in the latest action-adventure game? Do you spend hours hitting the combat dummies in MMOs with every ability in your spellbook? Are you at pinnacle skill ranking in your favorite competitive game? Is "TTK" written obsessively in your notebooks?

You are part sandbox designer, part level designer, and part systems designer. There is nothing that you are unwilling to learn and prototype in the ultimate pursuit of top-tier combat design. But you also understand that engaging combat is the result of multiple disciplines effectively working in tandem, so your soft skills are just as sharp as your design skills.

In addition to starting off as an individual contributor, you'll eventually be responsible for leading a small team of designers and artists, each responsible for a different piece of the combat systems pie. You bring out the best work in your reports, inspire them, and act as a force multiplier for their productivity.

The Combat Systems Team will be a machine the likes of which this industry has never seen. A machine that runs on the drama of engaging combat along with the adrenaline rush of barely defeating your opponent or escaping with your life. And you'll be at the head of it.

Does this sound like you? If so, join us and put a dent in universe!

About Bungie

Bungie was founded in 1991 with two simple goals: Develop kick ass games that combine state-of-the-art technology with uncompromising art, captivating storytelling, and deep gameplay. Sell enough copies of those games to fund our ongoing quest for total World Domination. Now located in bustling downtown Bellevue, Washington, Bungie has spent the last decade forging the Halo series into an award-winning global entertainment phenomenon. But our pedigree goes back further than Halo. Over the past twenty years we also created a bunch of other fun games, including the Marathon Trilogy and the first two Myth games, hailed as classics by critics, gamers, and our parents alike. We were just getting warmed up. Now we find ourselves at the beginning of a bold and ambitious new adventure. Armed with the best talent, state-of-the-art technology, and the finest community on the planet, we’re preparing to unleash our newest creation upon the world. Be brave.
