Kabam designers are focused on making incredible experiences for millions of players (and counting!) We are looking for designers who are eager to work with some of the best IPs in the business in a studio that values intentional design thinking.

As a Kabam Designer, you see the world of gaming as so much more than a hobby. Your passion for action RPG games fosters the need to know how they're made. You find yourself dissecting the progression, monetization, and gameplay systems and are intrigued by seeing how modifications can change the way people play.

    • Design rules and parameters for features and systems, implement and tune game systems, economies, and progression lines
    • Communicate design functionality and vision
  • Level-up our Design presence that is felt studio-wide;
      • Exercise production skills to set and deliver on priorities
      • Take a holistic approach to design rules and experiences with input and consideration from a multi-faceted team of contributors, including Live Operations, UX, Art disciplines
    • Combine passion, skill and expertise to continually raise the design bar.

    Your background includes:

    • Experience designing systems, characters and/or economies on at least one shipped title
    • Intellectual curiosity and logical thinking
    • Rock-solid organizational and project management skills with the ability to juggle multiple priorities
    • Bonus if you have raw technical skills including;
      • Scripting experience
      • Strong math skills
      • Spreadsheet wizardry
    • A hunger for new, different and exciting design challenges
