Level Design exists at the crux between gaming psychology and art, representing the delicate balance between gameplay needs, narrative elements, intuitive world logic, and constant immersion.

We're looking for a senior LD who has walked the walk, and is looking to embrace the challenge of balancing our unique gameplay mechanics with the freedom of building levels within the mind.

Much of the work involves overhauling prototype levels where opportunities for improvement and inspiration for change are both in ample supply. Great ideas can still impact the overall game flow and narrative, so it's important to embrace design fundamentals but shed any tendency for adhering too closely to realism for realism's sake.

We're looking for an experienced designer who can hit the ground running and show their prowess through expert blocking and the organic extension of our aesthetics, themes, and in-world metaphors.

Our goal is to blend narrative-heavy moments with action-oriented exploration.

Strong candidates will receive additional materials to provide deeper context and a clearer picture of what is desired from this role.

Unity is our chosen engine, but experience in Unreal is also welcome. We'd prefer that you've shipped at least one title in the 3rd-person action adventure or action-platformer genre, but would consider a candidate with strong evidence of world-building in their portfolio. We look forward to hearing from you!



The role is remote in nature, available inside or outside the US, and begins with a 1-month contract of 10-20 hours per week to ascertain quality and output.

Please visit our website or social channels for more information on the studio and its culture. We look forward to hearing from you.


  • Immerse yourself in the game's world
  • Review prototype levels for context
  • Receive briefing on high-level objectives & mechanics
  • Work to overhaul specific levels/scenes as necessary
  • Provide high-level block-outs and rough terrain topography to support them
  • Work in tandem with the Game Director and other team members to iterate on the level design(s)
  • Respect the balance between gameplay needs and narrative ambitions
  • Communicate and collaborate with the Game Director or other team members respectfully and in a timely manner



  • A portfolio that shows relevant LD experience, creative design, and mastery of design fundamentals
  • Ample experience with Unity and/or Unreal and relevant tools
  • Equal parts professionalism and passion



Hourly rates are negotiable depending on experience.


  • 1-Month Probationary period consisting of 10-20 hours per week
  • Starting date is March 2023

It was always INEVITABLE...

Many moons ago, unforeseen events led to a premature studio closure, scattering my many talented colleagues across the industry,

As an American working on a work VISA in Canada at the time, I was unable to create a new home for us, but felt it was inevitable that we'd all come together someday to create something amazing.

Today, Inevitable Studios is the culmination of that dream: a collective of veterans who have patiently awaited a long overdue collaboration, and the chance to create our best work, together.

Our collective goal is to build games that are familiar yet defy convention, craft intangible worlds brimming with possibility, and tell stories that respect the player's intelligence and enrich their lives with fun & meaning.

My name is Cord Smith. I've been a gamer for as long as I remember, and a contributor to this industry for more than two decades.

This unique game studio was founded to support remote work, sustain a healthy life balance, and thrive on unbridled creative collaboration.

We pride ourselves on our passions, strive for genuine & transparent communication, and aspire to build content of which we can be forever proud.

We hope you'll enjoy our creations for many years to come.

Featured Game

Always in Mind is a blend of action and puzzle-solving within an unpredictable & surreal world. With a story focused on the importance of family and building connections, the game is being crafted as a bright spot in today's ever-darkening world.
