|Job Title||Game Designer|
|Job Category||Game Design|
|Job Description||Are you a creative and dedicated game designer with experience in converting high level design goals into implementable systems? Or maybe a talented, experienced modder for Paradox Development Studio games and you want to contribute directly to our games? Are you interested in Paradox Development Studio and our brands and with a desire to help us bring them to the next level? Then you may be the one we’re looking for!
As a Game Designer at the development studio in Umeå, you will be an on-site project team member where you will be involved in designing gameplay features and systems under the guidance of the Game Director and Project Lead. You will have a direct and influential impact on the quality and feel of the game. We make games in the strategy, simulation/management and RPG genres. This means you will have a strong focus on mechanics, systems and balancing. Since Arctic is a small studio we expect people to have a broad set of skills. All our designers must be able to do both game design tasks and content design tasks.
We are seeking a game designer that is driven and hungry for learning more. You should enjoy working in a team but also be independent and able to take charge of a task and deliver beyond expectations. We care about quality and are motivated by the idea of our many fans around the world praising your work after release. You will thrive in a modern, creative environment where people working with you love their jobs and the games we make.
As a person we think you are a passionate team player, willing to go that extra mile. At the same time you are time conscious, able to make smart choices and “get shit done” when it's needed. You are open-minded, prestige-less and you see failures as opportunities to learn. You actively participate in design discussions and are not afraid to speak your mind. You are solution oriented and good at both giving and receiving feedback. You are a positive influence and support other team members.
We would like your application to include any relevant work samples and/or a link to your portfolio if you have one or any Paradox game mods you have released publicly. We are especially interested in game design samples and any other content that you have produced for games or other media.
Scope: Full-time and permanent
Reports to: Studio Manager
If you think that this description matches your background, we highly encourage you to apply as soon as possible as we will interview candidates continuously for this position. In your application, please show us why your previous experiences and skills would work for this role and why you are interested in working with Paradox.

Since we strive for an even gender distribution, we highly encourage women to apply for this role.
Paradox is a multicultural studio and we use English as our official language. Submit your Cover Letter, CV, and all included documents in English. Thank you.
