Blue Frog Gaming | Akron OH 44333 USA | Full Time | Posted: 10/16/2012
Our first product, Draftmix, was a fantasy football website. We were the first on the net to offer short season, live drafts for real money.
In the offseason, we began working on Football Tycoon, a side project that took on a life of its own. After getting tens of thousands of users in just a few short months, we expanded our offerings to include Baseball Tycoon and later introduced Samurai Warrior, our first non-sports concept game.
After the Tycoon Series, we decided to start fresh and built a science fiction game called Starfleet Commander. Now our flagship game, Starfleet has over 350,000 monthly users and is the largest virtual universe on Facebook.
At Blue Frog Gaming, we look for people with a strong ability to get things done. Our designers are responsible for more than just game design. Their ideas help shape both our products and our processes. We aren't looking for someone to just fill in spreadsheets, we want someone who can also learn from us the things we know, and teach us some of the many we don't.
Our company builds games on Facebook and web platforms. As an employee, you would work on a small and dynamic team to produce multiple games per year. Our organizational structure is very flat, and there is no bureaucracy. We move fast and use iterative development.
As our primary game designer you will be responsible for all aspects of game design from start to finish. You would be responsible for working with our team to make our games better. You will work on general game balance, leveling curves, completing unfinished systems, designing new mechanics, as well as play-testing works in progress.
We offer competitive salary and vacation, stock options, and full health coverage.

Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
Strong problem solving skills.
