Lead Gameplay Designer - Edinburgh
Gameplay is at the heart of everything we do, and this role involves working closely with our Design Director to design and implement the gameplay systems, levels, and features that define the project. Working closely with art, animation, physics, audio, and just about all other departments, you will be combining all the elements of the game into a complete experience.

You will be joining the studio at an exciting time, as we scale up to develop an ambitious and groundbreaking open-world game. The role brings with it great scope for career growth and the satisfaction of making a significant personal contribution to a high-profile project.
We believe in iterative development, and you will need to be comfortable working in a fluid environment with competing demands. We also believe the best games are made by diverse teams, and we welcome and encourage applicants of all backgrounds.
