SR. GAME DESIGNER – LIFE SIMULATION (m/f)


Who we are

At MegaZebra we craft category-leading games. We develop our own original titles, and develop games based on “Hollywood”-IP such as Desperate Housewives - The Game. By combining technology, game-design, art, analytics, and bringing together passionate people from around the globe we have repeatedly been able to produce hit games.

We develop all our games in small and vibrant teams. Each team has a high degree of responsibility for their game, and is committed to creating something outstanding. We are now looking for an experienced Senior Game Designer – Life Sims with in-depth experience in shaping and steering the development of casual games on mobile and web-platforms to join our talented crew.

What you'll be doing


  • You will primarily work on a high-profile title based on a very popular “Hollywood” IP. This entails being primarily responsible for all design-related concerns for this game, from feature, balance, and economy design to story, and social/multiplayer development

  • You will innovate in the narrative-heavy free-to-play segment. We strive to integrate episodic narrative and free-to-play game-mechanics in new and unique ways

  • You will manage a game-design team consisting of junior game-designers, writers, and content managers

  • You will also develop concepts for our upcoming games as well as lend your support to our current roster

  • You'll be leading the design process on these titles from the first idea to post-launch optimizations


Your profile


  • You have several years of experience in shaping and steering the development of casual-style games

  • You were involved in at least one successful game in a high-ranking position

  • You have gained hands-on leadership experience in the gaming industry, preferably working with small but agile teams

  • You have preferably gained in-depth knowledge of releasing games on mobile devices

  • You are familiar with social game mechanics

  • You are familiar with the current games market and consumer expectations

  • You demonstrate the right mix between creativity and technical aptitude

  • You have an eye for detail and are able to emphasise with the user

  • You know and use scripting languages

  • You are comfortable with having a variety of personalities and nationalities in your team

  • You are open-minded, flexible and self-motivated

  • You have excellent English language skills (German is no necessary. We are an English-speaking company)


What we offer


  • Become part of the company which develops category-leading, cross-platform games on mobile and Facebook

  • Develop games that are among the fastest growing apps on mobile and Facebook

  • Work in a highly creative environment with a super-flat hierarchy

  • Receive a competitive salary and benefit from one of the best health care systems worldwide

  • Enjoy our centrally located rooftop studio right beside the river

  • Enjoy a free supply of the famous Club-Mate, Bavarian beer, sweets and fruit in our break room with panoramic view

  

If that sounds like you and you are willing to relocate to Munich to become a part of our team, please apply in English with a cover letter, CV and suitable work samples.
