Join us in forming a new team

Jump on this exciting creative opportunity as Coffee Stain North is branching out with a new autonomous team, working from a separate location.

Take this unique chance to be a part of a small core group of key people, laying the groundwork and mapping out the direction as the team grows.

It’s the best of both worlds – the creative freedom of a startup, leaning comfortably on the safety of an established organisation.

We’re looking for people with an enterprising, creative mindset who thrive on a smaller team.

As part of this core team, we’re currently looking for an experienced Game Designer, Programmer, and Art Generalist respectively.

 

These are things you’ll do on the job 

  • Brainstorm and execute on fresh and exciting ideas, adding to a playful concept

  • Carry ideas from conceptualization, through prototyping, to detailed design and implementation 

  • Work in Blueprint with in-engine content creation and feature implementation 

  • Test, evaluate, tweak, and balance features

Should-haves

  • Professional experience with prototyping and creative design in Unreal Engine / Blueprint

  • The ability to take an existing idea and propel it to new heights

  • An intuitive feel for what makes up good level design and satisfying gameplay

Nice-to-haves

  • Some familiarity with C++, for tinkering and looking “under the hood”

  • Understanding of other areas of game development

  • An interest in the “philosophical” aspects of game design – what makes a game tick, what makes it special, worth playing?

  • Experience working on multiplayer or co-op style game

 

Practical info 

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

You will spend the majority of your work-time at our spacious offices on Kungsholmen, by Fridhemsplan. There will still be the option of working some days from home, if you prefer.

Perks of working with us

  • We offer competitive salaries and excellent benefits that go beyond a generous insurance plan and the usual payments to your pension fund
  •  We 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
  •  And, of course, you will be part of a wonderful team of colleagues working on an exciting high-profile project

We look forward to hearing from you!
