Position Title: Game Designer I
We are DICE
We entertain millions of people across the globe with the most amazing and immersive interactive software in the industry. To do this, we employ the most creative, passionate people.
DICE (EA Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment), the award-winning developer based in Stockholm, Sweden, is best known for creating the phenomenally successful Battlefield and Star Wars Battlefront franchises.
The DICE Design team creates the layer between fiction and reality. Our relentless mission to immerse players makes DICE UI technology challenging and fun. Challenges are given by UX design, but also rendering performance and implementing our world-class art direction. At DICE, nothing is impossible and if a feature makes the experience better for our players we will make it work.
As an Experience Designer at DICE, you will be working closely with other coders, artists, game designers and producers in cross-disciplinary feature teams. You will often be the spider in the web tying features together. You like to get things up and running quickly to test it, and then iterate and redo until features are fun and feels right. Pushing boundaries is not just something we say we do, it will be your job.
We are currently expanding our Design team and we need an experienced Experience designer with front-end knowledge to join our team. What this means is that you will work mainly in Frostbite’s editor building the game. Iterate on new in game ideas with other team members. You love to simplify and challenge existing ideas, but you are not afraid to use what someone else has built to achieve your goals. You need to have a sense for visuals and UX but at the same time be structured and understand the importance of using best practices for collaboration in large teams.
