Undead Labs is looking for a Principal Systems Designer to join our State of Decay 3 team. We’re searching for a passionate designer who relishes our open-world, systems-based gameplay to lead the progression and economy systems of our game. Our ideal candidate is comfortable building their designs on a foundation of empathy towards our player base while simultaneously working on the most minute details of interdependent systems. Skills in economy design, LiveOps experience, and balancing interconnected systems, as well as documenting design practices, are core requirements for success. You'll work in a multidisciplinary environment to deliver flexible, deep, yet accessible systems to provide our range of players with rich and expressive gameplay and progression into the hundreds, if not thousands, of hours.
At Undead Labs, we work in highly collaborative, cross-discipline teams because we understand that the best ideas are ones we generate together. We operate this way independently, as part of a network of first-party Microsoft studios. With our rich history of entrepreneurship and empowerment, and the millions of players supporting our survival-fantasy games, you'll collaborate with us as we reach new levels of quality, ambition, and polish.
