Middle Game Designer (AI) Hot Job


Dragons Lake







Mid-Senior Level

Permanent | Full Time


Dragons Lake is a top-of-its-class, multi-genre game development studio, providing advanced tech and design solutions for AAA/AA+ projects on PC & Consoles. It functions in association with Room 8 Group. We unite game dev professionals worldwide, working on high-end titles, co-developing, and porting with leading AAA publishers and developers in the industry.

Join this phenomenal team of professionals delivering creative and tech services, and bring games to the next level with Dragons Lake.

We are looking for a Game Designer to extend the team for the crucial project. You will work with the AI developers on AI bots (enemy bots, not NPCs).

The game is a session multiplayer extraction shooter, a 4x4km map with a lot of vertical elements and underground. Your team of four players will fight for resources in the center with three other teams. Some of the teams can be fully composed of bots, for which we need a Game Designer to help implement.

Expectations are clear:

  • Strong design skills and understanding of player experience;
  • Proven experience building AI in previous AAA projects (shooters, or even better - AI for shooter games);
  • In-depth knowledge of Behavior Trees, State Machines, and other AI models;
  • Good grasp of FPS design principles;
  • Excellent communication skills in English;
  • Iterative approach to design and a willingness to accept feedback.

You're a rockstar if you have:
  • Unreal Engine editor experience;
  • Shooter games experience;
  • AI for shooter games experience;
  • AI programming background is a plus.

Becoming one of the Dragons you will:
  • Playtest the game on a daily basis, always considering user experience;
  • Make daily decisions about the bot's behavior and configuration, and sync high-level courses with their game designers.

Grow with us, we've got you covered:
  • Competitive financial reward (yes, we are fair enough);
  • Challenges to raise your XP score (professional training and conferences, internal mentorships, and English courses);
  • Private medical care, paid vacation, and sick leave;
  • A culture of diversity and inclusion that unites the most outstanding talents;
  • A community of people who understand and share your passion for games.

Join Dragons Lake and take on challenges you've always dreamed of.

Keep Calm and waka waka...
