  • Participating in critiquing your work and the work of other designers; mentoring and inspiring a high standard for level design, pushing quality to the next level and exceeding expectation.
  • Working closely with our Lead Level Designer to plan your work, manage your effort and deliver your work in time.

  • A true team player, able to work collaboratively as part of a multidiscipline team and with the aptitude to effectively critique their own and others work, respectfully.
