We Want You

A new world and a new journey await you. It is a world different from any other Blizzard has created. If you’re a passionate game developer, and, well, a good human being, then we’d love to talk to you. We have a new AAA survival game in the works, set in a new IP for
PC/Console. It’s going to be amazing, and we’d love to bring you along for the ride.
Together, we’ll build something big, bold, and beautiful.
As lead core systems designer, you will drive accountability for a dedicated team of developers responsible for delivering best in class systems design, both internally for other developers, and for players. You and your team will establish clear pipelines, parameters, guidelines, rule sets, and tooling proposals to support and empower the wider game team to realize a broad range of player fantasies while guarding against unnecessary complexity.
In the end, your team’s work will glue together many components of the game and deliver marquee features, affecting the experience in innumerable ways.

We need your help with:

You’re good at:

Pitching game design concepts in a clear, detailed manner,
through strong written and verbal skills.
Advocating for developers not directly on your team,
understanding them as clients who must rely on your systems to
succeed at their objectives
Predicting and mitigating consequences of interacting system
designs, engaging with feature owners and design leads to
identify such effects and generate proposals that are deeply
informed by the context of the game at large.
