Junior Game Designer

Dots, New York City

We're creating games people love to play.


Dots is a young gaming company with three mobile hits so far (Dot, TwoDots, and Dots & Co), and over 100 million installs. We're a young studio staffed by multi-talented game-makers - passionate about games, committed to beautiful design and dedicated to growing and supporting our staff.

For this role we're looking for a junior game designer with a passion for puzzle games and a strong desire to pursue a career in game design. This role is full-time and based in our NYC office.

The ideal candidate has experience designing and playtesting game levels or content, and is familiar with current mobile game mechanics and systems. Familiarity with Unity or other game creation software is beneficial but not essential - we're primarily looking for strong design insight and a hunger for learning.

The junior game designer will perform general level design tasks, manage level testing, and help manage content updates and player feedback.

To apply for this job, please send a pen-and-paper level design for a Two Dots level, with an accompanying description of what makes it good to play. Please design your level around existing Two Dots game rules and mechanics only. Don't invent anything new!

Key Responsibilities

  • Building levels and events for Two Dots and other games as needed
  • Writing specs for new mechanics, as required by the Lead Game Designer/Game Director
  • Managing playtesting sessions and collating feedback
  • Monitoring playtest data and player feedback

Requirements

  • Strong passion and knowledge of video games, particularly puzzle games and current mobile free-to-play titles.
  • Good sense for what makes a game or level fun to play and the ability to articulate that to others
  • Strong written, verbal and visual communication skills
  • Excellent time management and organizational skills
  • Ability to take direction and work well in a team environment
  • United States work visa
