  • Before lunch, you catch up with your lead, whiteboard out some of the service work the team will be focusing on over the next month and hash out priorities, as well as, who should be working on what.  
  • Lunch time!  You grab a couple teammates, and head down to Bellevue to grab food - or maybe you pick up lunch and then hang out with the team to play some video games while you take a breather.
  • After lunch you block out some time to start prototyping one of the services you are working on.   You've got the initial prototype working so you spin up some cloud resources to test out deployment.  
  • In the afternoon you meet with one of the studio engineering leads to chat about some improvements to one of the internal services/systems that are used across the studios.   Your brainstorming session results in some cool new features that will help the studios isolate engine issues faster and make them even more productive.

Writing

Jobs
Location

Our dynamic team of game makers is looking for a Contract Writer who loves building new locations and characters, finds the humor and humanity in everything we create (and in other people), and is flexible and adaptable as we continue to raise the bar for ourselves and develop this brand-new IP. We’re looking for someone who can go to interesting, dynamic, funny, boundary-pushing places, creatively, and has the interpersonal skills to do all that while still having a friendly and collaborative report with the team. We are looking for an individual who is excited to create worlds and characters that appeal to a wide swath of potential players and who isn’t daunted by ideas that feel new and different.

 

WHO YOU ARE:

  • You are passionate about writing and fictional world-building, in games and beyond. You have a diverse array of things that inspire you and make you laugh.
  • You are an accomplished writer with a solid portfolio of shipped work, at least some of it in games. Your work is creative, easy-to-read and funny. You care about grammar; you wonder if that semi-colon is necessary.
  • You believe that creative passion and common decency can and should exist harmoniously. You model that every day, using clear, direct, kind communication, both verbal and written.
  • You are adaptable to changes within a project and you know that asking the right questions can help teams focus. As a writer, you pride yourself in your ability to work through unexpected pivots and still deliver interesting work that adds depth and fun to the IP.
  • You understand and can balance the different needs of non-fiction departments. You speak all the languages/wear lots of hats/appreciate mixed metaphors.
  • You thrive in a fast-paced creative environment. You can exist happily in the messiness but also feel a lot of satisfaction when you can “solve it” and make it organized.
  • Weird, funny ideas come to your brain all the time and you aren’t afraid to try them, even if they don’t work perfectly the first time… you’re a big believer in versioning.
  • When you don’t have something to do, you don’t sit on your hands. There is so much world to build; you’re never idle.

WHAT YOUR DAY MIGHT LOOK LIKE:

  • Meeting with the Fiction Lead and Game Director to discuss the game's tone and questions that have emerged in the ongoing IP exploration. Then some solo time, expanding the worlds and history based on larger thematic's.
  • Working with a concept artist on a new character.
  • Meeting with a level designer to come up with creative fictional plusses for a map.
  • Brainstorming game-play ideas with the game-play team, finding the right language to convey exciting power fantasies.
  • Writing dialogue for characters in game, as well as additional scenes to find the voice and how they interact with others.
  • Participating in a play test, because actually playing your own game is pretty darn fun.
