• Represent EGP and the EGP Design Team to partners and developers and build strong, positive and supportive relationships
• Use your game title knowledge to identify competitors, provide examples and set quality bars
• Help to assess and provide due diligence on potential new projects
• Help out with wider Epic design and project initiatives when appropriate

What we're looking for
• 5+ years game design experience within a studio environment, on PC or console
• Someone who has taken multiple games from inception to release
• Beyond organized, with proven systems for capturing, prioritizing and executing tasks across multiple projects
• The best communicator

• Proactive, with a strong eye for detail and an incredible ability to multitask
• Self-motivated and able to work both independently and in teams
• Comfortable adjusting to unpredictable deadlines and schedules
