About Coffee Stain Studios
Coffee Stain Studios is the biggest development team under the Coffee Stain brand and it's where it all started back in 2010. For the last five years we've been developing Satisfactory. The game has been quite the success in Early Access but there are still things we want to add and finalize before the final release.
Micromanaging is not our style, so everyone needs to take responsibility over their own work. We want everyone to feel like they’re contributing to the end product and thrive towards always becoming better at what they do.
Diversity is something we encourage and support. Not only does creativity thrive when different backgrounds and perspectives are brought together, we also grow as people. Coffee Stain Studios has grown more diverse over the recent years, but we still believe we can improve more.
As a Game Designer on Satisfactory you will be responsible for a lot of things. It's important that you have a good understanding of where the game is today and where we want to take it. Since the game is still in Early Access a lot of things will change and evolve. We are looking for a (technical) game designer that can help out where needed. Integrating content, editing existing blueprint and testing/prototyping are things you are required to manage by yourself. You will be expected to both come up with new ideas yourself and refine others.
Day to day tasks include but are not limited to
- Integrate and tweak content
- Rapid prototyping and testing of your own and others ideas
- Systems design
- General gameplay balancing
- Level gameplay design- and integration
- Professional experience in a game design role or equivalent
- Good understanding of general, multi-disciplinary, design principles
- An eye for quality and attention to detail
- The ability to take responsibility, work independently, and communicate effectively within an interdisciplinary team
Qualifications that are a plus
- Experience with other fields of game development
- Experience with UE4 and Blueprints
- Scripting/programming experience
Even if you don't fit the description 100% you're more than welcome to apply!
