Senior Game Designer (Feature)

Wooga

We are proud to belong to the TOP 1% of all employers in Germany 2021 & 2022!


Our Story

At Wooga, we are very proud of the diverse, creative and friendly environment we have established and we believe you will enjoy working with some of the best people in the industry. Each of our Woogas plays an important role in our success as a company and in shaping our culture. We really value our razor-sharp focus on story-driven casual games, excellent craftsmanship, and the truly collaborative way of working. We create joyful experiences that awaken our players’ desire to see what happens next. Based in the heart of Berlin, with over 280 employees from around the world, we work together to create high-quality casual games with engaging stories at the core of the experience.

We are currently looking for a Senior Feature Designer to work on either June’s Journey, a narrative puzzle game that will be launching soon, or a new hidden object adventure that is due to launch next year. Do you want to work in a stable, friendly, environment that strives for and recognises excellence, and where values like diversity, integrity, and innovation are more than just words on a page? If so then we would love to hear from you!

 

About the role

  • Conceive exciting new features and write specs that communicate your vision to other team disciplines, including Engineers, Writers, and Artists
  • Get to know our players, and use that knowledge to create features that delight and entertain them
  • Manage the entire feature lifecycle from exploration to live iteration
  • Use your analytical skills to review feedback and KPIs; then make decisions to improve feature engagement, monetization, and retention
  • Contribute to a genre-defining narrative world by creating features that support the complex story
  • Make sure new features integrate effectively with the narrative experience, game systems, economy, events, and monetization initiatives
  • Understand the casual market to ensure that your features are competitive and engaging. Our players are everything to us!
  • Remain current on the hidden object market and competitive titles

About you

  • You have F2P game design experience
  • Your profile includes at least two multi-platform mobile F2P games, ideally in the casual space. Live ops experience is a major plus!
  • You are comfortable analyzing data, and adept at making KPI-driven feature and game experience improvements
  • You work with an agile mindset and are familiar with the various stages of game production, and live game releases
  • You consistently strive to grow your design skills, improve yourself professionally, and increase team creativity and productivity
  • Organization is one of your skills, you have a keen eye for details, and you understand the importance of setting goals and meeting deadlines
  • You are an excellent communicator (in English), and comfortable speaking in front of people
  • You can present your ideas in a clear and comprehensive way using spreadsheets, slideshows, and visual prototyping tools
  • You stay current on emerging game trends, new mechanics, and innovative monetization techniques
  • You are an excellent team player, who fits into our multinational and very friendly team of highly-motivated professionals

Please note: Research has shown that some under-represented groups in the gaming industry (eg: women) tend to apply only if they meet every single requirement. Here at Wooga, the desire to learn and the willingness to solve problems are more important to us than your experience on paper. We encourage you to apply even if you do not think that you tick all the boxes - thinking outside of such boxes and embracing the diversity of mindsets and backgrounds is what we believe makes our teams thrive.

  • Shape the future! Challenge the status quo and team up with a diverse group of experts (over 50 nationalities!) working on crafting the world’s best games.
  • Located in Europe’s most creative city with low cost of living and high quality of life. We offer a generous relocation package and home search support if you are not already located in Berlin. Did we mention that we also cooperate with Kindergartens?
  • Make use of a significant education budget and extra days off for self-development. Join our meet-ups, talks, brown bag lunches, internal trainings, workshops and many others.
  • Enjoy the yoga, mindfulness app, sports and transport subsidies. And a Purpose Day to donate your time to a worthy cause!
  • Participate in the company’s success - we offer a quarterly bonus scheme!
  • Did you know that German is the third most commonly taught language worldwide? Learn it too! We offer German language classes for you and your significant other.
  • Choose your own equipment and be set up for success! We also provide you with a work-from-home budget, which you can invest in a well-functioning home office setup. We got your back!

Be yourself, we like you that way!
