Do you want to be part of creating a multiplayer digital playground for kids to hang out in and play together?
As the Game Economy Designer here at Toca Boca you’ll be part of a growing game team in delivering our most ambitious project yet - a friendly multiplayer world for children where they can feel safe, creative and be able to express themselves.
It’ll be your job to design and build fun, playful systems for progression and the economy. It’s very important that these systems are built on our creative principles; the power of play, taking the kids perspective and celebrating the everyday.
What you’ll be doing
You’ll lead the design work for a feature team focusing on content and progression. You’ll design fun (and balanced) ways to drive retention and create a sense of progression that holds up over time! You’ll keep the game’s overall retention in mind when it comes to short term and long term goals for our audience.
You’ll conduct and react to play tests focusing on the economy and progression design with our target audience, kids. You’ll champion the kids’ perspective within the various feature teams.
You’ll work closely together with our lead Play Designer and Data scientists, to ensure the game vision is clear to the team and upheld throughout development as we improve the experience for kids. You’ll be part of a team of Play Designers, all working on various features.
You’ll become the obvious go-to person when anyone within the company has questions about the economy systems in the project or for any future projects at Toca Boca.
Is this you?
You’re an experienced Game Designer who has worked with game currencies in multiplayer games before. As this is a new field to us, we want you to bring all your knowledge and create an awesome game economy system that is both fair and fun.
You’re interested in working with kids as the target audience. You believe in the power of play.
