About Theorycraft Games

We’re a new game studio on a mission to make deep, 10,000-hour games that are just better when played with friends. We are a small team with big ambitions. We are hungry and want to win. We want to stay small, move fast, and ship early (while we’re still embarrassed). Whenever possible we opt to buy vs. build and we view game development as our craft - not our specialized sub-disciplines. We’re looking for people who thrive with a lot of freedom and responsibility; who wear a lot of different hats comfortably; and who are always, always acting on behalf of the player.

Job Description

As a UX Designer, you’ll be designing delightful and useful game interfaces for the core gameplay and meta game systems on Project Loki. You’ll do competitive analysis, building wireframes, prototypes, and other design components to communicate design ideas.

If you’re a UX Designer who wants to help us build faster and think our culture sounds good, we would love to hear from you!

Ideally, you have:

  • 3+ Years of experience
  • High familiarity and expertise of action-game genres - in particular MOBAs, Hero Shooters, and Battle Royales
  • Comfortable working in Figma

Bonus points for:

  • Familiarity working in Unreal
  • Strong understanding how to make cross-disciplinary tradeoffs between game design, art, and engineering
  • Great visual design skills
  • Expertise in building design components or libraries
