Senior Mission Designer

We’re looking for a Senior Mission Designer to design and implement missions as part of a historically-based story campaign, focusing on the player’s emotional engagement and detailed authenticity. On our team, Mission Designers have a hybrid role, requiring both creative vision and the technical proficiency to bring that vision to life.

Responsibilities
  • Work with the Creative Director to establish the overall arc and pacing of each mission
  • Thoroughly plan and document missions in detail
  • Set up objectives and encounters, script mission events, and assemble all mission assets
  • Evaluate and iterate on missions based on playtest feedback
Requirements
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • 5+ years’ experience in a Mission Design role
  • Familiarity with Unreal Engine 4 required
Benefits
  • Highwire is built on mutual trust and respect. As a team, we value honesty, authenticity, and professionalism. We are committed to building an ethical, trustworthy company, and we expect the same high standards from everyone we work with.
  • Hybrid Culture. Our team is already working remotely across 8 different states. And, if Seattle is your home, for most roles, you’re free to work at home or in the studio.
  • 401K, Medical, Dental and Vision coverage for you and your family.
  • Sustainable Development. Even before the pandemic, we’ve prioritized flexibility and balance for our team, encouraging responsible self-regulation, working remotely part- or full-time, reasonable production demands, and disciplined, transparent leadership.
  • Flexible PTO. We don’t limit our team to a set number of days off. If your work is getting done, you’ll get flexibility in determining your schedule and vacation days.
  • Equitable Profit-sharing Program. When the game makes money, the team makes money, without drawn-out vesting schedules or steep seniority tiers.
  • Impact. Our mid-sized team and highly visible products mean your work will make a big difference in games that millions of players all over the world will experience.
