Join us in driving the next revolution in games.

We are looking for a Level Design Director. You will drive the game's overall level and quest vision, being a unifying point for game content and player experience. The Level Design Director will use their creative, technical, and RPG expertise to guide the larger picture, ensuring every mission, location, set piece, hub, layout, and player choice combine into an exciting, player-directed journey.

What the Level Design Director will do at BioWare:


  • Work with design leadership to develop the narrative, gameplay and experiential vision.
  • Meet with the team to brainstorm ideas, set quality benchmarks, and identify technology gaps.
  • Work with partners to outline the gameplay experience (landmarks, encounters, flow rhythm, tension, pacing, variety, exploration).
  • Participate in prototyping, experimenting with design features to identify opportunities and determine best practices.
  • Guide and inspire the team to create unique spaces. Spaces where gameplay flow, visual composition, and narrative context form iconic, memorable experiences.
  • Meet with the team to mentor and motivate the design vision.
  • Work with production to identify asset dependencies, scope, and delivery schedules.
  • Review content and provide feedback.
  • Work with artists and the Art Director to balance technical, aesthetic, gameplay and narrative constraints.
  • Using external player feedback, iterate and find solutions to identified friction points.


  • 8+ years of level design experience with lead level design experience on at least one AAA title.
  • Experience developing Single Player and Multiplayer level design vision.
  • Drive experiential and narrative flow through a gameplay area, creating evocative spaces and iconic moments.
  • Experience with nonlinear, self directed level design.
  • Experience with spatial design and scripting logic.
  • Guide and mentor level designers at all levels of experience.
  • Experience working with Creative and Technical leads to identify pipeline and design requirements.
