Job Title UX Designer - AAA Games - Sweden
Job Category Art / Animation
Job Description Our client is looking for a smart, driven and creative UX designer. When gamers talk about their games, they talk about over-the-top-action in massive open worlds. After they hire you, the fans will talk about something else, too a memorable player experience driven by beautiful and appealing user interfaces.

Visual and interaction design are your obsession, and creating a smooth, accessible and meaningful player experience is your mission. Your speciality is to simplify complex ideas while inventing new ways to solve problems with design. You have a significant game culture and a comprehensive understanding of the current state of UX in videogames. You are technically savvy with a deep background in Flash, a flair for motion graphics, and a secret interest in procedural effects like particle systems.

They want you to join them in Stockholm to conceive, push and design the entire user-interface chain for their next AAA console and PC games. They want you with a knack for innovation: your work is going to need to look and feel innovative into the future. To pull this off, you'll work closely with dedicated UI programmers and artists, and more broadly with the entire all-star development in Stockholm.

Required Qualifications:
  • UX / UI design experience on at least one published console game
  • Strong Photoshop and Flash skills
  • The ability to conceive a user interface that isn't just a glorified list of buttons and the wisdom to know when that inventiveness is appropriate
  • An abiding love of open-world action games

Desired Qualifications:
  • Familiarity with Scaleform
  • A fair bit of 3D modeling experience
  • Some background in animation
  • A great eye for typography
  • An appreciation for dynamic effects like particle systems or procedural modeling (maybe you don't have the scripting chops to develop a chaotic system on your own, but you can produce strong concepts in collaboration with a UI programmer)
  • At least a bit of scripting ability, preferably in ActionScript or Python
