Would you like to be the feature owner for AI – combat and non-combat NPCs in the game – and contribute significantly to the second-to-second and hour-to-hour game loop? 


In this role, you will work with some of the best AI tools in the industry, having a lot of autonomy and creative control over every aspect of the game’s NPCs.

At the same time, you will have the support of a solid and experienced team.  

What you get to do:

  • You’ll get to design and prototype AI features with the support and direction of the Lead Gameplay Designer and the Game Director. 
  • You will be pitching new enemy archetypes and boss fights that fit the vision, gameplay and creative pillars of the game. You will write creative and technical design specs, and prototype enemy behaviours and abilities.  
  • During the production stage, you will be creating and maintaining behaviour trees, finite state machines, environment queries and Lua scripts from early prototypes all the way through final implementation and polish.  
  • You will work closely with programmers, character and VFX artists, animators and audio designers to bring the vision to final quality, evangelizing AI features to level designers and environment artists. 

What you bring to the role:

  • You have a good understanding of rational game design principles and the role of AI in gameplay loops. 
  • You can drive core game features from concept to release, you are experienced with AI systems and have shipped one or more titles in a similar role. 
  • Your technical capabilities allow you to understand complex concepts and create first-pass technical implementations of features yourself.  
  • You can give and take constructive feedback while interacting with leads, publishers and other team members, using it to improve the product. 

We work in an environment that values both individual and teamwork, ensuring that everyone’s voice is heard & workload stays sensible. We believe in and support work-life balance. Happy people work better! 
  
We offer an extensive set of employee benefits and an annual bonus system as well as opportunities for you to develop your skills further. On top of this, in Finland and Sweden, you get up to 5 weeks of paid vacation, in addition to public holidays and other special occasions.
