  • Shipped at least 2 titles as part of a cross disciplinary team
  • Experience with tools like Figma, Adobe Creative, Sketch or any of the other common tools
  • Collaborative - you’re able, willing, and excited to take feedback from others in the pursuit of arriving at the best outcome for our players
  • Current - you stay up to date on what’s going on in the market, playing around with the latest games and apps to find inspiration for your own designs.
  • A passion for multiplayer PvP games.

  • A passion and love for games
  • Willing to relocate to Ontario, Canada*

*Our team is working remotely on a temporary basis with the expectation that everyone will relocate to Ontario when it is safe and reasonable to do so.

Nice to haves:

  • Visual Design skills
  • Technical Implementation skills
  • Experience in a small, scrappy team startup environment.
  • Experience in cross platform design and development

Benefits:

  • Dental/Vision/Pharmacare coverage. Canada has universal health care, so you and your family will be covered by OHIP.
  • Open paid-time-off policy with 2 week minimum enforced by the company. We trust you to take time off when you need it.
  • Competitive salaries (benchmarked to Canada) that value your experience and dedication.
  • Stock options in an early stage startup. We want you to be motivated to stick with us for the long haul.
  • Annual game stipend. We can all learn so much from new games coming out.
  • Relocation assistance, and immigration where applicable.

About Us

Odyssey Interactive is a Canadian Game Development studio formed around the mantra of building "Games you Live". We believe that the best games are the ones you think about long after you put them down, that help you feel like you're a part of something bigger than yourself, and that you believe you can invest in for years to come.

We're on a mission to build games with the same emotional potential as the games we fell in love with growing up, but designing them with a mobile first mindset. We believe the next generation of gamers is going to be the most connected, the most diverse, and the most relentlessly driven generation this world has ever seen - and for them phones aren't just a tool, they're an extension of their body. We believe they deserve the same quality of games that we fell in love with so many years ago.

The founding team is comprised of 4 former leads from Riot Games where we led teams such as a the League of Legends Balance Team, the League of Legends Champion Design team, and the development of Teamfight Tactics - and are excited to try to build a highly innovative, played obsessed studio with an awesome team...a team that you could be a part of!
