Junior Combat Designer (m/f/d)

Sandbox Interactive is an ambitious game development studio located in the heart of Berlin. Since 2012, we have been developing the game Albion Online, which has already established itself as the first truly cross-platform MMO for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. With its sandbox nature and core features including a player-driven economy, classless character customization, and full-loot PvP fights, it has enjoyed broad success since its official launch in July 2017. In May 2018, the Albion player base grew further with its launch on Steam.

To support our lead combat designer, we’re looking for a Junior Game Designer to assist with analysis of game balance, combat ability design and balancing.

  • You’re comfortable with data manipulation (Excel, XML, ideally some scripting experience)
  • You’re self-organized and independent
  • You’re already familiar with Albion’s combat or highly enthusiastic about learning everything about it by yourself
