id Software, part of the ZeniMax Media Inc. family of companies, is seeking a Gameplay Designer to join our team. This is a full-time, on-site position in our development studio located in Richardson, TX (just outside of Dallas).

Do you obsess over how long the telegraph on an AI attack should be? Do you fire a weapon in a game and break down why it feels so good to shoot? Do you play the latest game modes and think about why they work or why they don’t? If you are the type of person who lives and breathes how it feels to play games, then you’ve come to the right place.

We are seeking a talented Gameplay Designer to come help us make industry-leading weapons, AI, bosses, progression systems, and player mechanics for AAA single-player action-FPS games. You will work closely with Game Directors, fellow Designers, and multi-discipline feature teams to help plan, prototype, and build systems that players will enjoy for years to come.
