Game designer for the Fortune 500

Here's something different for a game design pro. Some games-industry veterans from Xbox and EA got together with some ad-industry pros and started creating campaigns with game mechanics. It's strategic gamification. Sometimes our projects look like a game, and sometimes we bury those game mechanics deep. This experiment is working. We've made millions for clients like Expedia, Showtime, Hyatt, Virgin and MGM and grew 50% last year.

And now we need you.

We need a game designer with enough swagger to apply what you've mastered in mobile and social games to the world of business. We need you to help us with acquisition, education and engagement gamification for the world's best companies. You'll jump onto a new learning curve that takes all you know and adds business strategy and big agency creative. The projects go to market in 3-6 months, so it's fast and fun.

Here's what we'd like you to do each day:

-Own the game design from concept to post-launch optimization
-Build inventive game play systems that drive specific consumer behaviors (like clicking on things, watching videos, etc)
-Create Game Design Documents, flows and wire frames
-Work with UI/UX designers, developers, writers and strategists to bring your vision to life
-Study the metrics and user feedback to optimize the game until it delivers against our client's objectives

And these are our ideal qualifications:

-5+ years of mobile and/or social game design experience with credits on at least two titles shipped
-The creativity to come up with unexpected game design ideas that solve client problems
-Strong quantitative thinking for game balancing and economies
-The ability to get energized in a collaborative team environment and lead by persuasion
-Knowledge of dominant mobile and social games platforms
-Strong writing ability and the confidence to present your ideas to an exec
-Rich history of playing games and a passion for figuring out what makes them great

Reasons why this job could be great:

-If you've been lucky enough to be in the games industry for a while, you may be looking for a break from the cyclical grind. This will challenge you.
-We're growing, but have a 10-year history so there is stability and the excitement of a startup.
-If you live in a coastal city, this job is near Scottsdale, AZ where you could possibly pick up a nice-sized house (with a pool) compared to what you're in now.
-You will have a seismic impact on the world beyond entertainment. Millions will see and play the games you develop here, and in many ways you'll make their lives better for it.
