Designer Role Description
Our current dev team consists of thirteen people, the team is experienced and have worked together for a long time. We’re looking for a down to earth, nice person to join our team.
As a designer at Coffee Stain North you will be tasked with designing and populating the game world. Primarily you will be implementing scripted and unscripted events and objects in the game world. Your tasks can also be anything from working with NPC navigation, level design for platforming, designing mechanics and game systems, balancing, level optimization etc.
As an ideal candidate, you are effective at executing and iterating on the proposed design and you enjoy being a part of the creative process and come up with ideas and improvements of your own. As we are a small-ish studio, you will be expected to be able to work with people across all disciplines within game development.
Ideally you have already worked at least a couple of years in the games industry. You are familiar and comfortable with agile development. As we’re working in Unreal Engine 4 we’re requiring you to have some experience in Blueprint or visual scripting in another game engine. Experience working with online multiplayer is a big plus.
About Coffee Stain North
We are still a small-ish studio, and we’d like to stay that way. The games we make are the games we want to play. We strongly believe in staying independent so that we can continue on our own path. We like to work in smaller, more focused teams where everyone matters. Micromanaging is not our style, so everyone needs to take responsibility over their own work.
Coffee Stain North is located in Stockholm, Sweden, one of the most gamer-centric cities in the country.
We believe diversity is a good thing and that creativity thrives when different backgrounds and perspectives are brought to the table. So if you’re any sort of minority in the game industry then we definitely encourage you to apply. Diversity is something we are constantly striving for.
Perks of being a Coffee Stainer
We offer competitive salaries with excellent benefits. We have a really nice insurance program which you will benefit from, payments to your pension fund as well as getting time off to work out.
You will get a chance to have a big influence over your own work and taking initiative is encouraged. This goes for both the projects we work in or life at the office in general. Besides all that you get to work with an amazing team in an amazing office.

(that's "thank you" for all you non-scandinavians like me out there who, when joining, was inundated with crazy new words like semla and sjuksköterska. but it's ok, you get used to it after a while)
