Relic Entertainment, a wholly owned studio of SEGA, is the award winning RTS developer of Homeworld, Dawn of War, Company of Heroes and Age of Empires, and we’re on the hunt for a permanent full-time Mission Designerat our HQ in Vancouver, Canada. As a studio, our role is to create a workplace where people are energized and empowered to not only do their best work but to continually surpass their best. We’ll push you out of your comfort zone to become the best version of you by giving you the ownership and creative freedom to solve our most challenging problems.

The Mission Designer will design and implement gameplay by utilizing mission design, scripting, and level layout abilities as part of a group dedicated to making top quality RTS experiences.

As a Mission Designer you will…

  • Write game scripts and design documents, and develop prototypes at a level that meets and exceeds direction by leads
  • Communicate ideas with various project development personnel to solicit feedback and ensure support
  • Work collaboratively with level artists and narrative designers to deliver the best campaign experience
  • Demonstrate high levels of ownership over your own work and ability to work independently
  • Utilize independent judgment when determining course of action, based on past experience

  • Experience creating high quality, single player missions, with an understanding of pacing and narrative and staging elements

It’s a bonus if you have… 

  • Experience mentoring or instructing designers
  • A degree or certificate in Game Design or equivalent
  • Experience with programming or scripting languages (Lua, C#, JavaScript, C++)

You will become part of the SEGA family (in addition to Relic, it includes Creative Assembly, Sports Interactive, Hardlight Studio, and Amplitude Studios) which means you’ll have an opportunity to work on AAA games and learn a ton. We also offer top-notch benefits and perks, including an extensive extended health benefits plan, retirement savings plan, and support for any required relocation or immigration efforts.
