About Coffee Stain Malmö

As the latest Coffee Stain office, founded last year, we are looking to build our new studio WITH our new hires, not just for them. That’s why we are on the lookout for the best and brightest in mobile games development and production. We offer the chance to build our Malmö studio from the foundations, with the backing of one of the hottest indie games studios and publishers in the world.

We are a small, but rapidly growing, team of developers and publishers who care deeply for every game we make, not just the one closest to release or the one that’s the most successful right now. As part of the wider Coffee Stain family, we share their values, and helping each other out is important to us. We believe that people are at their best when they’re supported and trusted.

As a Level designer at Coffee Stain Malmö, you’ll be responsible for making engaging levels. You will be collaborating with other disciplines within your team and create new game play experiences based on feedback and playtests. You will maintain your own level documentation and create your own level prototypes with the use of visual scripting.

Therefore, it is important that you have both high organizational and communicative skills with the ability to work independently.

These are things you’ll do on the job 

  • Be responsible for designing high-quality engaging levels
  • Creating and maintaining clear level documentation
  • Work across multi-disciplinary teams to create exciting and engaging gameplay experiences
  • Manage the design of levels through the full cycle of production from conception to finalization

  • 3+ years of experience with level design or a similar role
  • At least 1 relevant title shipped for mobile as a Level Designer
  • Excellent English written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong interpersonal and organisational skills

Bonus if you also have

  • Proficiency with visual scripting
  • High organizational skills


Perks of being a Coffee Stainer

We frequently engage with each other around the games we're working on and playtests are a natural part of our day-to-day regardless of the role we have. We’re firmly against micromanaging, we trust our colleagues with the expertise and work ethic they bring to the table.

We can be flexible to accommodate your individual needs to make sure you have the right prerequisites to do your job and we allow for a healthy balance of working from home and working from the office, even outside of the consequences of the pandemic. We do however like to see each other in the office in person the majority of the week.

We offer competitive salaries with excellent benefits. We try to follow the Collective Agreement as close as we can, which means payments to your pension fund and insurances. We also believe that a healthy body leads to a healthy mind, so on top of the wellness grant, you get some paid time off to work out.

Practical info 

The position is permanent, full-time, 40 hours per week, in Malmö. 

Apart from us, the Coffee Stain group consists of COFFEE STAIN STUDIOS in Skövde (Sanctum, Goat Simulator, Satisfactory), COFFEE STAIN PUBLISHING (Stockholm) EASY TRIGGER (Huntdown), and COFFEE STAIN NORTH (Goat Simulator 3), COFFEE STAIN GBG (Welcome to Bloxburg), LAVAPOTION (Songs of Conquest) and BOX DRAGON (working on an unannounced title)
