The $100 billion gaming industry is on the verge of revolution.
For decades, gamers have suffered under the pretense of ownership: purchasing digital assets to which they hold but negligible rights. Now, with the advent of blockchain technology, comes the opportunity to empower gamers with true ownership. Our mission is to lead this revolution and transform the space as social and mobile platforms did years ago.
With a small but exceptional team of artists, designers and engineers we are building a AAA trading card game where players have complete control over their assets. As we approach launch, we need the help of other talented professionals to help bring our game to the world.

That's where you come in...
We are looking for a talented game designer who wants to create the next generation of games. You have experience working on AAA titles and proven time and again that you produce game experiences that players love.
Be a thought-leader in blockchain-game design
Blockchain has opened up new realms of possibility in game design. Not sure what blockchain is or why it matters for games? That’s OK, we can teach you. We need somebody with game design expertise, imagination and an aptitude for critical thinking to analyse, hypothesise and innovate new game genres and concepts.

We have some exciting plans for using blockchain; you will bring the passion for engineering fun and captivating games. The space is still in its infancy and this is an opportunity for you to influence the direction it evolves.

Help us create a player-first future
We want to show the world that players should own the items they buy, including being free to sell or trade them to others. We want to reward players for time invested into our games. You will make this vision a reality by designing highly engaging, player focussed games.
Coach and grow a talented team:

  • You will join our growing game team, and they will benefit greatly from your experience and in return your leadership skills with grow.
  • Working with the other department leads you will encourage a positive environment for collaboration and problem solving to shepherd your ideas from concept to implementation.

You will:

  • Find unique solutions to hard game design problems leveraging features of blockchain
  • Propose new game modes that result in higher engagement
  • Define quality work procedures and improve the function of the team
  • Generate concepts for future Games titles
  • A prior interest in gaming or blockchain: so long as you’re curious to learn what the fuss is about

How we work

  • Collaborative quarterly goal setting: see how you work ties into the company's goals and help define what success looks like
  • Sponsored learning: if you want to learn from the best educator in your field, we’ll find a way to make it happen. People in our team have had masterclasses from NYT bestsellers, Lead Designers of the largest games in the world, and more.
  • Regular feedback: at the team and individual level. How can you improve without feedback?
  • Small, agile scrum teams: running on 1 to 2 week cycles
  • Transparency around strategy: with a clear process for raising ideas and issues: Everyone’s thoughts and opinions are valued, and anyone, from intern to executive, can tell us how to do things better

As a small startup we can offer you a unique benefit: growth. You will be joining on the ground floor which means you can grow with us - leadership positions, roles many levels above your current experience and the opportunity to make a significant contribution. It's yours for the taking.
