Open Position – Senior Game Designer

Position Duties

Passtech Games is looking for a Senior Game Designer to join our team and take charge of the Live Ops Game Design for our game “RAVENSWATCH”, currently in Early Access. Ravenswatch is a 3D game in a top-down view, with a strong, stylized art direction in a Dark Fantasy universe. For Live Ops we want to continue offering content to Ravenswatch players after its 1.0 release. To this end, we plan to provide both free and paid updates in the years following the game’s release.

  • Define and communicate Ravenswatch’s Live Ops vision to the rest of the studio.
  • Write design documents to guide the technical and artistic teams.
  • Oversee and participate in the implementation of new content in our game engine.

The scale of our productions allows for easy dialogue between the different members of the studio: everyone’s opinions are invaluable! We value a healthy and inclusive working environment so that we can develop our games in the best possible conditions. This position is to be filled at our offices in Villeurbanne, two metro stations from the Part Dieu train station.
