Epic Games' Fortnite Ecosystem team is looking for a versatile Gameplay Designer. In this role you will help design systems and workflows that bridge the divide between projects and products.

Our ideal candidate has experience in systems and gameplay design and brings a passion for creative empowerment for both players and developers alike.

In this role, you will

• Be the primary point of contact for triage of open issues related to your feature
• Help develop new features and processes within the design team

What we're looking for
• 3-6+ years of experience in building UI and experiences in game engines and across multiple platforms (mobile, web, pc, consoles). Or similar experiences that have transferable years of experience
• 2+ years of experience shipping updates and new features to a user base on a regular cadence. Or similar experiences that have transferable years of experience
• Professional experience using Figma or Adobe Suite (especially Photoshop, Illustrator a plus), have engine experience (Custom engine, Unity, UE4, Lumberyard, Snowdrop, etc.), and an understanding of game industry 3D-package experience (3D Studio, Maya, etc.)
• You have an eye for pixel perfect UI, translating and spotting various potential issues with mockups as you help see the designs into the engine
• You are a logical problem solver who pays a lot of attention to detail and has excellent written and communication skills
• You can ''translate'' communication across departments (i.e talk to engineering about UI art needs, summarize technical issues, etc), but also have empathy for non technical team members and the ability to empower others on your team
