Toys For Bob - Associate Level Designer
Novato, CA - Temp position 

Toys for Bob is seeking a creative, highly motivated temporary Associate Level Designer.  We are looking for someone who loves collaborating with a team to create engaging level environments and gameplay. 

To succeed in the role, you will:

Collaborate closely with fellow designers, level artists, programmers, animators, visual effects artists, sound designers and producers to create memorable, imaginative levels that are fun to play. 
Create engaging gameplay that utilizes the characters and environments in a manner that complements overall game design. 
Become an expert at the tools we are using to build the game. 
Push to exceed our audience’s expectations – show a passion to elevate the fun factor to new heights 
Tirelessly polish, debug, and tune gameplay – the final 10% is where the magic lies.
Model first-pass level geometry, terrain, and props for game environments. 

Requirements for this role may include:

2+ years of game design experience
1+ year(s) experience with Unreal (or similar toolset)
Experience developing and shipping AAA console games
You’ve played and created enough games that you have a deep understanding of what’s fun and what’s not fun – and why.
You have experience scripting and/or programming languages to craft gameplay.  And you enjoyed yourself.
You communicate effectively when both writing and speaking.
You’ve proven your passion for creating great games by having made something that you’re proud of – and you can explain why.

You will really get our attention if you demonstrate:

Excellence in communication and collaboration (clarity, flexibility, understanding, accuracy, receptiveness, reasonableness)
A desire and the proficiency to become an expert at the toolset
Passion for creating excellent gameplay (understanding of fun, willingness to hear critical feedback, love of iteration, player first)
Energy, enthusiasm, and optimism to overcome tough challenges and make things better

Toys for Bob is a team of inventors, makers, and magicians who have been developing whimsical AAA console games for over 25 years. We play and work in a former Air Force hangar that’s been converted into a colorful, tiki-themed, dog-friendly studio just 20 minutes north of the San Francisco Golden Gate bridge. Best known for inventing the “Toys to Life” genre (Skylanders), we are a team of out-of-the-box thinkers who are driven to create memorable experiences that inspire joy through levity and play. If you love games, are great at what you do, and don’t take yourself too seriously, we’d love to talk to you.
