 XR Games is an award-nominated games studio based in Leeds, UK. We make console and mobile games, have a specialism in VR / AR game production, and make non-VR games too. Our core business involves licensing existing IP, specifically movie brands, but we also make original product in-house on a work-for-hire basis. 


We require a senior game designer who will report to the Head of Game Design. The role involves significant responsibility in design and production. It is a creative role.

Plusses include:

  • Experience in dialogue script writing

  • Experience in game balance via system variables

  • An understanding of games-playing audiences, including children, boys and girls

This is a client-facing role which may require the applicant to take calls out of core hours. User testing will inform iterative development, and will require work with children. 


The role requires the applicant to live in / relocate to Leeds, or within commuting distance. You must be eligible to work within the UK.
