Lead Game Designer

The goal at XR Games is to be the best developer of VR titles in the world. 


Due to the success and critical acclaim of our previous projects such as Zombieland: Headshot Fever and Angry Birds Under Pressure our team is now working on numerous major projects with recognisable IP’s throughout 2022 and 2023.


Having won ‘Best small studio’ at the 2021 TIGA awards our team is growing in all areas of game development as we transition from a small start-up studio to an established multi-disciplined games studio specialising in full-scale immersive extended reality games. Led by a team with big game experience at studios such as Rockstar, EA, Codemasters, Playground, Dubit and Sumo we have created games for some of the world’s biggest brands such as Sony, Rovio, Dreamworks and Lego.


The Role


We’re looking for a Lead Designer who can take the lead on a new major project. Candidates for this role must demonstrate a passion for the gaming industry and have the ability and knowledge to be involved in every stage of the production pipeline.

Core Responsibilities:

  • Define and support the vision for a specific project


  • Work in Unity to define level design philosophy


  • Lead XR’s design team to efficiently produce gameplay content


  • Document and track projects as required


  • Be creative and have fun with a strong team 


  • Communicate project vision to the team


  • Build an efficient pipeline for content creation


  • Ensure play quality within that pipeline


Are you the right person?

The right person for this role will have a proven history in games design and development over many years. You will have a broad and in-depth understanding of the gaming industry with multiple shipped titles to your name.


Your leadership experience will be underpinned by excellent interpersonal and relationship management skills as you will already be leading multi-disciplined project teams.


Our studio is based in Leeds with a hybrid-working setup as standard. Our preference will always be to have people based in the office for part of the week, this will aid with your personal development as well as fully ingraining you within our team's culture and fun activities. However we do accommodate fully remote team members if we need to and will assist financially with relocation for those looking to do so.
