Nexus Studios Los Angeles is looking for an experienced Game Designer to join an upcoming project exploring VR and AR.


Nexus is a BAFTA winning and Academy Award nominated independent production studio working in film, animation and immersive storytelling. Based in London, Los Angeles and Sydney, we create meaningful, heartfelt stories that positively add to the cultural conversation.

The Studio has successfully been working on a similar project with the same client.

We are looking for a client-facing Game Designer who will join our creative team and help us design levels, missions, new elements and mechanics that best serve the narrative and world within the IP universe and the chosen XR platform.


  • Experience with level and gameplay design
  • Prototyping experience
  • Worked in previous VR games
  • Ability to communicate gameplay concepts to client in a clear manner
  • Extreme attention to detail
  • Excellent communication and planning skills
  • Ability to iterate quickly
  • Conscientious and self-motivated


If you want to be part of Nexus Studios and make your best work please send a short covering letter, portfolio and your CV to, with “Game Designer (LA Office)” in the subject line.
