Senior Combat Designer

Game Design Irvine, CA


We Need You


The Diablo Immortal team is looking for a proven veteran designer with a passion for engaging combat and gameplay. You are experienced in multiple areas of design including skills, monster spawning and boss encounters.

You are comfortable flexing both technical and aesthetic. One moment you are working with an engineer to optimize a skill so it behaves well under high latency conditions, the next you’re choosing the monsters that will form the ecology for a new dungeon.

The ideal candidate will have proven experience in game design, a passion for all things multi-player, outstanding people skills, a strong aptitude for critical thinking and analysis, boundless creativity, extensive knowledge of Diablo games, and a longstanding passion for playing video games. We are helping to pioneer the creation of epic Blizzard games for our core community and new players – join us!
