We’re looking for a skilled single player level designer to join our team. This is a key role, as you will be responsible for large sections of the world and how the player experiences it. You will collaborate closely with our design director and artists to formulate player experience, tell in-world story and create memorable levels. The ideal candidate has strong level design fundamentals and the ability to prototype ideas quickly in order to get team buy-in.
While this is a fully remote position, applicants will need to be available for core hours from 10am to 2pm ET in order to collaborate with coworkers.
How to Apply
Please send us an email with your resume (or linkedin) and a link to your portfolio with the title of the job you are applying for in the subject line.
We look forward to connecting with you!
Afterburner Studios was formed in the summer of 2018 by three veteran game devs who were feeling burned out in more traditional development. Our debut title, Dreamscaper, an action roguelike with a lucid dreaming twist, launched in 2021. Since then it has gone on to reach over 600,000 players with an 89% positive rating on Steam.
Our next project is a larger, more ambitious title in the AA space – a science fantasy 3D action / adventure blending classic elements with new twists. We’re looking to expand our team with motivated individuals that are excited to work in a small, fast-paced indie studio, in order to make a big impact on our next game.
Join the Afterburners
With a wealth of knowledge from more traditional development, we set out to start a studio that allowed us to make games that are fun, player-first, and punch above our weight class. If you’re excited by multidisciplinary collaboration on a highly motivated, small team of crafts people, check out our open roles.
Join us as we break into the AA space and push the quality of indie games with our latest project.
