We are looking for an exceptional mid level visual designer to join our creative team. Are you a User Interface designer with an obsession for precision, and a desire to work on the most beautiful mobile games in the world? Are you as comfortable in the Creative Cloud, as you are in Sketch, Figma, and Unity? Are you the best designer you know, but not a jerk about it? Are you always hunting for cool designs and animations, and want to collaborate with people who share your passion? If so, we should chat.
