Level designer - Gothenburg

Come work with us at our Gothenburg office or from the comfort of your own home!

Annons thunderful

With roots in the award-winning SteamWorld series, known for its frequent genre-hopping and inclusive design, we have an experienced team working on The Gunk; a new original IP that lets you explore strange new planets and see what treasures you can find beneath the sticky surface.

Starting as a part of our well established team working on the Gunk we would love to see that you enjoy the entire spectrum of level design, from concept & blockout to full implementation. In this position you will design encounters, puzzles and visually appealing levels. The content you create will have to adapt to fit well with the game’s vision and you will work closely with programmers & artists to implement the best solutions possible.

If you love working in a team of smaller teams (20-30 people) and being a part of shaping the levels & the process of making them this might be the place for you.

The role includes

  • Create top down layouts and communicate the vision to the rest of the team
  • Block out new levels, populate existing ones
  • Script events
  • Conceptualize & implement clever puzzles using the game mechanics
  • Communicate the design with the rest of the team to ensure it's in line with the overall vision
  • Gathering feedback through internal & external testing and iterate based on the feedback
  • Manage and prioritize tasks related to your levels


  • Professional experience working as a level designer in Unreal Engine
  • Ability to work both theoretically with the design as well as more hands on in the engine
  • Excellent verbal and written communications skills (English)

Bonus points

  • Extensive experience with blueprint
  • Living in or around Gothenburg
  • A passion for environment art & lighting

Our bonus points

  • Nice people
  • Collective agreement (Tekniktjänsteavtalet)
  • Flex hours
  • Wellness allowance (friskvårdsbidrag)
  • Crunch free development culture
