An Associate Mission Designer at The Gearbox Entertainment Company is an entry-level development role focused on creating missions and narrative activities that breathe life into the worlds we build. This position is for recent college graduates looking to get a start in the industry.
An Associate Mission Designer is responsible for owning the player’s moment-to-moment experience when exploring the worlds we build. Candidates should have strong visual scripting skills, working knowledge of basic level design skills, and a strong feel for storytelling. Job duties will include pitching missions, working with the writing team to develop narrative moments, scripting narrative events, and owning the technical implementation of all mission objectives.
This role will work with a small worldbuilding group involving other level designers, level artists, mission designers, and lighting artists to holistically bring life to the worlds our players explore. Associate Mission Designers report to the Lead Mission Designer on their project and will receive additional mentorship and training from other more experienced Mission and Level Designers. This role requires a familiarity with visual scripting, Borderlands-style FPS missions, as well as mission and activity design from a wide variety of game genres. Successful candidates will show a passion for interconnecting narrative and gameplay, strong communication skills, and the ability to work in teams.
***Due to uncertainty around Covid-19, this role will start off as a full-time work-from-home job. Equipment will be provided by Gearbox. When it is safe to reopen our physical office, this job will be required to be on-site at our Frisco, TX studio.***
