Assistant Game Director – Assassin's Creed

Job Description

As an Associate Game Director, you’ll have the important mission to support the game director, who must ensure that the game systems properly convey the creative vision and that the vision remains an integral part of the target player experience.

You will also assist the game director in reaching the strategic design objectives set out for a project by guiding conceptual application in the game. While your designers focus on their areas of ownership, you’ll pay attention to the larger picture, overseeing the game’s overall outcome: progression, pace, balance, and – of course – quality.

You will ensure that all elements related to design work together cohesively to fit the intended experience and make it rich and fun.

What you’ll do

  • Work with the game director to ensure that the game design meets the vision that was set out.
  • In collaboration with the director, help define best design methods for the project and inform the design team.
  • Communicate quality and content expectations to the design team on a regular basis so that the systems take constraints onto account in order to ultimately create the optimum user experience for target players.
  • Coordinate first-level validations for the elements that are produced based on the game designer’s vision and/or follow up on and validate the data to guide the development of game systems and levels based on the game designer’s vision.
  • Translate the rational game design elements into elements that can be used by the level designer.
  • Support the level design director in translating and deploying the game design elements into operable elements for the level designer.
  • For multi-studio projects, harmonize design across all sites and help carry out tasks assigned to other design teams whenever applicable.

Qualifications

What you bring

  • A college diploma (AEC) in video game design and production or equivalent
  • At least three (3) years’ experience as a game designer or any other relevant experience
  • Experience in supervising a team of game designers (an asset)
  • Client/user focus
  • Tons of creativity
  • Influence and positive leadership
  • Openness and ability to build consensus
  • Solid communication and interpersonal skills
  • Ability to communicate a vision

What to send our way

  • Your CV highlighting your education, experience, skills, and any games shipped
  • Samples of your work (attach files or send us a link to your demo reel or online portfolio)
