Designer (World) - Destiny
Vicarious Visions is looking for a talented World Designer to create cutting edge experiences for Destiny. If you're interested in jumping in and working with some of the most talented developers in the industry, apply today!
You will be part of a team of designers building compelling worlds and encounters. You will design layouts, script events, tuning AI encounters, 2D design documentation and all things gameplay-related while working alongside other designers, artists, animators and engineers to create environments that are incredibly fun, look great and run well.
You will work within established level design metrics and utilize the game systems to create formidable AI encounters, interesting puzzle scenarios and unique moments, but you will also have the opportunity to pitch new ideas and game concepts to your peers and the design leadership.
You must have 3 -5 years of experience as a designer, having been through multiple complete game ship cycles, and including previous experience working on levels, encounters and missions/quests.
You will need a good sense of spatial and layout design as well as a competency in 3D editors/game engines.
In 2016, Vicarious Visions celebrated its 25th year in the industry. We have made hundreds of games, in every genre, on every conceivable game platform in the known universe. We are a studio that is built to last, and now we are embarking on a brand new chapter.
We are currently partnering with Bungie to further expand the award winning Destiny universe.
Our philosophy of combining cutting-edge tech with creative innovation is evidenced in all of our products – from Skylanders to Crash Bandicoot, and including our recent contributions to 2016’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. We apply the same dedication to excellence to every video game franchise we’ve worked on over the years and we are bringing that same philosophy to the Destiny franchise.
We foster a culture of collaboration, respect and fun. We have built a welcoming and relaxed workplace that invites creativity and encourages individual voices. We not only give our developers a safe and warm place to incubate and grow their ideas but the tools and support necessary to turn those ideas into impactful and memorable experiences.
Our studio is located in Albany, NY, a thriving northeastern city with an abundance of professional theatre, music, dance, and sports attractions, as well as a backyard full of recreational activities. (That’s a metaphorical backyard. The studio’s backyard has a patio and grill though…with seasonal awning.) And for those looking for more adventures, we’re located less than three hours from NYC, Boston, and Montreal.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
