We create ambitious games in a quietly awesome culture.

That simple statement is at the heart of what we do here at Possibility Space. Founded by a diverse and experienced team of game and media industry veterans, we are built from the ground up as a distributed studio, allowing developers to live and work where they are happiest. We strive to create an environment where we can do our best work regardless of what we look like, who we love, or how we identify.

We’re searching for a game designer to take ownership of our moment-to-moment game feel across all player-facing systems in our game, focusing on 3Cs design (character, camera, controls). This person is someone who enjoys the tiny adjustments that make a camera’s motion feel just right, finds just the perfect level of feedback for an explosion to give, or knowing the right way to leverage an asset library to create a flavor-loaded ability. In this role, you’ll be primarily responsible for game feel focusing on camera and control schemes across multiple game modes as well as constructing visual feedback to reinforce the player’s actions through gameplay. This person reports to the Gameplay Director and will collaborate extensively with other disciplines to create the right degree of feedback for the player’s experience.

We're looking for someone who has an eye for good moment-to-moment feedback for players, and can use touchpoints like X-Com, The Sims, or Animal Crossing when looking at how to make a game feel satisfying to play. This role is open to designers who can self-direct through the responsibilities of the position. You will also act as a mentor to others in the fields of expertise you oversee.
