Our Ethos: We value how ideas take shape - in a conversation, a prototype, a dream. Inspiration flows through our studio, homes, and minds. With one drop of inspiration, the idea begins to spread and the smallest idea quickly grows to something bigger than us. That's by design. As with our games, we are advancing the industry - one idea at a time. We are Ripple Effect.

Our Values: We believe in an honest and transparent environment, where developers grow in our crafts. We value bold risk-taking followed by excellence through iteration. We seek developers with diverse experiences who will enrich our studio creativity.

  • Collaborate closely with other designers and engineers, to understand and define UX goals for new and evolving features
  • Independently design solutions: concepts, wireframes, and prototypes while iterating based on your research, team feedback, and user feedback
  • Create process flows, wireframes, and visual design mockups to effectively conceptualize and communicate detailed interaction behaviors for multiple environments and audiences
  • Work within Frostbite engine to implement your work through iterative prototyping, ensuring they make for the best possible player experience
  • Document and drive awareness of UX standards, and push to improve UX design workflow processes

 

Requirements:

  • 5+ years of experience in UI/UX design, at least 2 years in games
  • At least one shipped game as a UI/UX designer; AAA development experience is a plus
  • Passion for games and user-centered design and a fascination for understanding how users experience a product

  • Advanced knowledge of digital tools for creating UX and IxD deliverables
  • Understand the importance of documentation and teaching others
  • Enjoy problem-solving with a creative team

  • Degree in Interaction Design, Psychology, Human Factors, Industrial Engineering or related HCI discipline

Benefits:

We are proud of the great perks we offer like comprehensive health and benefit packages, tuition reimbursement, 401k with company match and, of course, free video games.
