What do we expect from you?

Since all NAPNOK GAMES projects are design driven, you are the key driver of the project interfacing with all other disciplines. Together with Chief Creative Officer and the Producer, the Lead Game Designer holds the crucial role of delivering fantastic game experiences on time and within budget.

You will lead and manage the Design team (5+ designers) of a major console production, providing feedback and planning tasks in order to meet deadlines. We expect you to lead by example and through practical hands on design set a high pace and an excellent quality standard. Write design documentation and pitch material that clearly communicates ideas and design. Being a lead in NAPNOK GAMES is not a 9 to 5 job. We don’t believe in excessive crunch, but we do expect our leaders to carry the torch when an important milestone needs to be delivered or production requires it. Any leading position may also require travel (4-6 weeks per year), when necessary, to our office in Skopje.


Successful applicants have:

  • Minimum 4 years of experience, having shipped at least one console title on a multi disciplinary team, with multiple largely positive game reviews.
  • Experience with all aspects of game design, such as system design, narrative design, level design, user experience and interface design, game testing, analytics, and QA.
  • Excellent verbal and written English language communication skills and the ability to communicate designs and ideas effectively.
  • Broad interest in games and play culture, everything from esoteric board games to casual mobile games, from interactive fiction to electronic toys.
  • Experience with industry standard game editors such as Unity or Unreal Engine and ability to quickly learn and adapt to new tools. Basic understanding of programming as well as art.
