We believe in the beauty and strength of diversity, in both the makeup of the studio and the nature of our thinking.  Our focus on open communication and overall well-being allows each of us to strive for excellence in our work, and happiness in our lives.

Oh, almost forgot to mention that we’re currently making the next BioShock!! I know, right? Our passion and love for this iconic franchise is what brought us together. The thrill and responsibility of creating the next iteration of such a beloved game is what keeps us going.

Someone who is excited to work closely with engineering, animation, modeling and level design departments to ensure that the player character’s controls harmonize with the overall project design goals. Proven ability to define and utilize tools and tuning systems required to achieve desired results.

Minimum Requirements:

  • 3Cs experience on at least two successful AAA titles

What You Will Do:

  • Create and maintain a living design document that keeps pace with the project's schedule and accurately conveys all necessary information to related disciplines.

If all of this sounds as exciting to you as it is to us, we’d love to meet you. Join us in creating worlds that move people.
