Team responsibilities:

The design, creation, ownership and championing of features, mechanics, missions, maps, game modes, systems, etc as necessary.
Equally capable of working independently, collaborating with peers or guiding more junior designers.
Maintaining a strong communication with other departments in which you must be comfortable being an advocate for “the player”.
Working closely with the Engineering and System Design to improve AI, gameplay, mechanics, tools, etc.
Working with Environment Art and Level Design to ensure a perfect balance between gameplay setup and visual direction.
Working with Narrative to build engaging stories for mission and locations.
