JOB TITLE: Lead UX Designer
LOCATION: Brighton, UK
REPORTS TO: Game Director
What We Need:
We see UX designers as the glue that holds all the parts of great video games together. Everything we build from a game design perspective you get your hands on; from systems to mechanics, from the HUD and menus to control schemes, from usability testing to player advocacy, you make sure that at all times, the player experience is at the forefront of your mind, and on the minds of the Directors, Leads, and Implementers responsible for putting our game together. We can’t create a great game without you.
As the Lead UX Designer, you’re the glue-master. In addition to working with the Game Director to set the overall vision and direction for user experience, you are a master communicator; capable of ensuring that UX design is on the same page not only with each other, but with the UI artists and other team members that both rely upon and request help from the UX team.

Located just 45 minutes via train from London, Brighton is one of the UK’s most diverse and downright interesting cities. Sat right on the south coast of England, the city is home to a vibrant creative community and is known as an easy-going and tolerant place to live and work. Brighton is home to Victorian piers and palaces, brightly coloured stucco homes and a 5-mile long shingle beach which becomes a post-work social hub during the summer months.
Onsite amenities inside our state-of-the-art Brighton studio include a fully equipped kitchen, games room, gym (with showers) and our very own bar. We’re a 30 second walk from Brighton station.
