Lead Game Designer

  • Location: Paris, France
  • Salary/rate: DOE
  • Date posted: 02/01/20
  • Job reference: 7542
  • Permanent

We're partnered with a well backed and growing Start-Up based in Paris, France. They're located in District 13, near 'Station F', the biggest tech and start-up incubator in Europe. The founders and small team are developing a Football game which is managerial and tactical in nature. It is based on mobile platforms and is free to play; it's been in Soft-Launch since 2018 and the feedback and KPI's have been superb. They're now looking to take it to another level with an eye on a global launch. 

They are looking for a Lead Game Designer to lead the team in all things Design. Although the core game-loop is there, there is still huge scope for creative input on this project. So much of the meta-game and wider off-pitch tactics are still yet to be determined. They are ideally looking for someone who sees their game as a great foundation for building a much bigger game. You'd be reporting directly to the founders of the studio and have full over-sight of the project. We expect your team to grow to 3-5 people once you've joined. They see this role growing along with the studio and success of the game.

To be considered, we'd love to see:

  • Strong Free2Play game design experience
  • You've worked on shipped Free2Play games from start to finish
  • Interest in Football
  • Collaborative leadership and communication style
  • Ability to focus on singular mechanics then pull back and look at the meta-game

This is a great opportunity to join a thriving start-up who are already VC backed and have a marketable product. The role is based full-time and on site in beautiful Paris. They have generous benefits and salary offer, which is open to negotiation. For base salary they are thinking somewhere between €50,000 - €70,000.
