  • Do You Appreciate the Flexibility of Working From Home?

VHS is seeking a Senior UI Game Designer to work alongside a global and talented team of engineers, 3D artists, and UX designers! You are a multifaceted creative, who can perfectly balance conceptual with practical and know when to turn up the volume of either depending on the project.

The right person is a problem solver that loves a challenge, passionate and experienced in the world of design and a big picture thinker.

Key Tasks

  • The ability to turn feedback, conceptual and abstract thinking into design solutions for our customers;
  • A craftsperson who is obsessed with the details and has an innate understanding of aesthetics (composition, colour, typography, components etc.);
  • Develop concepts for gameplay for use throughout the player lifecycle to maximise engagement and retention;
  • Quickly prototype design ideas in-game and rapidly iterate via play testing;
  • Execute all visual design stages from initial concept to pixel perfect final hand-off;
  • Manage the continued optimisation of our Design System;
  • Demonstrate ability to present and communicate your design thinking;
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to execute company objectives;
  • Track insights to continuously improve the efficiency and impact of design components so solutions are simple to follow and understand;
  • Promote design best practices and standards;
  • Be up to date with the latest design trends.

Selection Criteria

  • Use Figma at the highest level. We’re talking plugins, libraries, components, symbols, automation...all the ‘smarter not harder’ things;
  • Able to leverage aftereffects and other motion tools to help communicate interactions and intention of designs you build;
  • Work collaboratively with engineers & don’t think of yourself as separate teams;
  • Visual design is the focus here but you will have solid UX principles behind you;
  • Come to work loaded with inspiration and enthusiasm for all things related to digital experiences;
  • Work with and continue to develop and influence our design system;
  • Identify and conduct the highest impact research projects for the design team;
  • Ability to develop creative, flexible and rapid approaches to user experience problems;
  • Multi-task across in-house projects and studies and working with outside vendors where required to conduct research;
  • Strong organisational skills, able to act independently and able to switch quickly between different projects, even within a day;
  • A thirst for constant growth and improvement both for yourself and our products;
  • Familiar with Agile development methodologies.
