We are looking for a Game Designer to join our growing team in Madrid, Spain. This is an opportunity for a current junior Game Designer with some experience in the industry.
At aheartfulofgames we value independence and flexibility on a mostly horizontal organizational structure. We develop several projects at the same time and this position will at first be in charge of part of the design of IRONSKINS, an in-house developed Turn Based Tactics game. The project is scheduled to have a year left in-production once the position is filled, and afterwards you will work on other projects within the company. We are looking for a permanent hire that can further expand and strengthen our design team.
As a Game Designer you will work alongside the existing Design Coordinators to tune and polish the game, both the visuals and gameplay, and make sure the experience is engaging for its intended audience. You will also advocate for and help integrate design modifications and final features.
Because of our size, structure and ethics, we are looking for a very hands-on Game Designer that is not afraid of a technically complex project, who can learn and research tools and processes as needed. But most importantly we want somebody who can work with the whole team to ensure the game stays true to its vision and remains tightly knit.
