Technical Designer - High Moon Studios
Great Games Start with Great People! This is a significant time in our company's history - and one of the most exciting times to join us! We are seeking a talented, self-directed game designer with strong technical abilities and a passion for problem solving. Technical Designers are a vital connection between Design and Engineering, able to communicate and engage with both disciplines ''in their language.''
A Technical Designer should have experience with a wide variety of scripting languages and game engines and should be comfortable learning ''on the fly.'' Technical Designers should be able to absorb a large scripting base quickly and use that knowledge to inform and empower other designers.
If that sounds like you, please apply to join our award-winning team. We can't wait to hear from you!
