We’re ArenaNet—we’ve created a studio that builds online worlds infused with innovation, hand-crafted excellence, and creative passion. We're not the only ones who share this passion; gamers made Guild Wars 2 the fastest selling MMO in the West with more than 3 million copies sold in its first 9 months, and players and press have consistently called it one of the best games of all time.

We cherish our relationship with gamers. For over 10 years, we've been building trust with our players by delivering a series of consistently good experiences over time. We engage. We listen. We design for them.


ArenaNet is seeking a creative, technical, and team-oriented Lead Combat Designer for an unannounced 3 rd -person fantasy action console title.

As the Lead Combat Designer, you will work closely with project leadership to ensure alignment in direction, and then lead and champion your team’s efforts to deliver a compelling moment-to-moment experience.

You will inspire passion and creativity in those around you. You will bring hands-on expertise to empower the combat team. You will find innovative ways to improve the experience while preserving scope. You will help us shape the product from an early stage and help drive the implementation of that vision into a reality.



An ideal Lead Combat Designer is an inspirational collaborator. They are deeply and personally invested in their work. They embrace challenge and are excited by the opportunity to compete against other AAA titles. They can thrive and be fulfilled within a previously determined context while still finding ways to leave their mark on our game, our team, our company, and our industry.


This is a full-time, on-site position at our studio in Bellevue, Washington. A casual, friendly work environment, comprehensive benefits package, competitive salary, and more are all part of what makes ArenaNet a great place to work.
