The Role 

UI Designers at Splash Damage turn concepts and systems into intuitive and engaging experiences that enable players to interact with our game worlds and each other.

Applying user-centred design methodologies, UI Designers take ownership of UI features and drive them to completion. They create user flows, wireframes, interactive prototypes, and effectively apply colour theory and design principles to craft visual designs with a high degree of polish. After delivering mock-ups and design specs, they review the implementation to ensure it matches their vision, and use feedback from user testing to push iteration as needed.

UI Designers are collaborative by nature and enjoy working with others to develop concepts and ideas. They see challenges as opportunities to develop their own skills and are enthusiastic about honing their technical ability and expertise. UI Designers are selfless individuals who never lose sight of who they’re ultimately designing for – our players.

We believe that levelling up our skills is an essential part of the job and offer regular training opportunities and mentorship to all our UI Designers.

You Have:

  • A solid background in UI design; you’ve worked on at least one commercial product for a significant period of its development
  • Fluency in current design and typographical trends, with a keen eye for composition, clarity and usability
  • A can-do attitude and strong interpersonal skills; you love collaborating with others to craft solutions and can provide constructive feedback when asked
  • Great time management and organisational skills; you can support others in getting the job done without supervision
  • Good communication and presentation skills; you’re able to present ideas clearly to audiences of all experience levels
  • A real enthusiasm for game UI

Bonus Points for:

  • Experience working with UMG
  • Knowledge of game accessibility best practices

Splash Damage is an equal opportunity employer. We believe our teams create better work when they have a range of perspectives to draw from, and we are committed to creating an inclusive working environment that celebrates diversity.
