Narrative Designer

As a narrative designer at Squanchtendo, you are in charge of making the translation of design concepts into high quality VR execution. You love thinking about how to bring great character driven narrative to life via methods other than cutscenes. Timing and dialogue is extremely important to you and you have great ideas on how to utilize the VR headset to make this even more impactful and funny.

You are:

  • An experienced narrative designer. Shipped a title or two: You've worked in a design roll focused on narrative systems and/or scripting interactive narrative scenes.  Bonus points if you’ve made the step into VR interactive experience design.
  • Curious and passionate: You read and/or play games most days. You know what’s going on in the world of VR and can’t wait to talk to others about it.
  • Collaborative and humble: You know that the best work comes from a team who trusts and respects each other. You strive to collaborate with others and don’t care whose ideas win. Best ideas win.
  • Tech-friendly: Regardless of whether your tech background includes programming, scripting, or working in engine editors, we need folks who are flexible and willing to dive in and make changes when necessary. No paper-only designers, please.
  • A lover of VR and the potential of the platform: You may fancy yourself a bit of a futurist. You know what the latest excellent ways are to interact with the world and what experiences blow people’s minds and you can’t wait to make more of them.

You will:

  • Work within a design team to conceptualize, document, and execute a fantastic VR game
  • Feel very confident creating narrative driven experiences. Bonus if you've done things to make people laugh. 
  • Be a great communicator of your design: Using whatever methods necessary to ensure that everyone gets it.
  • Seek feedback and adjust as necessary, communicating along the way
  • Be OK with some structure and process. Documentation doesn’t scare you, in fact, it makes you stronger.
  • Play to your strengths and not be afraid to admit your weaknesses

Bonus Points:

  • Unreal Engine 4 experience
