Senior Gameplay Scripter

Company: Hangar 13
Location: Novato
Posted on: September 13, 2020

Job Description:

What We Need:

We are looking for a world class game scripter who combines a strong background in mechanics design with an incredible aptitude for scripting. A designer who has a passion for driving the creative design that brings unique and diverse player & enemy abilities to life. The ideal candidate also has the ability to script using LUA and visual script, ensuring abilities are brought to life in the way that designer envisions.

This role is a senior level design and/or technical design position focused primarily on delivering the vision and in-game script/assets for our newest title. You will work directly with the combat, player, and enemy design leads, as well as gameplay engineers to ensure the abilities you deliver match the ultimate vision for the game we’re developing together. The abilities you create will enable players to succeed in wondrous fashion, or enable the game’s enemies to defeat the players with ease.

Creating the high level designs for player and enemy abilities

Collaborate with the combat, player, and enemy design leads to create cohesive characters and enemies

Communicate with gameplay engineers on the building of an underlying system for the rapid creation and iteration of player and enemy abilities

Scripting, using both LUA and Visual Script (C++ could be substituted for LUA)

Determine the best way to prototype, and plan the transition of script to code later in development

Who We Think Will Be A Good Fit:

While mastery of craft, demonstrated experience, and a quintessential ability to communicate well are all essential aspects of the position, we value a number of other elements as well; creative, technical, and cultural:

Scripting experience in previously shipped games using LUA + Visual Scripting. Ideally you have shipped at least 2 AAA console games within a scripting or technical design role

A keen sense for gameplay mechanics, particularly if you’ve shipped games with responsibility for their delivery

A strong understanding of design tool frameworks, and how both script and visual script co-exist

Ability to work independently in a team environment

Ability to communicate and collaborate across multiple locations effectively

A true love of gaming. We find time at work and at home to engage in titles across the spectrum of gaming, from the newest AAA releases to the novelist of indie titles, and the most obscure mobile games

A huge appetite for entertainment in general. Great stories, great interactions, great experiences, and great creativity can be observed in nearly every form of entertainment, whether that be a local play, the newest movie, a hit series on Netflix, or a book you simply can’t put down. We’re voracious consumers of entertainment, taking inspiration from anything and everything we can

Positive by nature. While we’re quick to give feedback and hold each other accountable to an incredibly high bar for quality, we’re supportive of each other and the game we’re making

Who We Are:

Hangar 13 is the internal 2K development studio behind the award-winning Mafia III. The studio is comprised of industry veterans drawn from a diverse range of studios, who have collectively shipped hundreds of titles across a wide variety of genres. Though we hail from all over the world, and our backgrounds are wildly different, one thing binds us all together – the belief that “Every Player’s Story is Unique.”

Hangar 13 is based in four locations: Novato (California), Brighton (UK), and Brno & Prague (Czech Republic).

We work collaboratively across our 4 locations to develop games as one global team. Each of our locations provides the opportunity to work on big-budget, AAA console in a diverse and inclusive environment!

Located just 30 minutes north of San Francisco and 30 minutes south of Napa Valley wine country, Hangar 13’s Novato location has found its home within 2K’s headquarters in Northern California. Situated in Hamilton Landing inside a renovated United States Air Force base hangar, you will find our talented and passionate team within invigorating Marin County. You can walk out the door and explore famous hiking and mountain biking trails as well as the gorgeous coastline. In addition to working in an exceptional setting conducive to Hangar 13’s inclusive and creatively diverse work environment, the Bay Area also provides employees with access to vibrant nightlife, world-class cuisine, local farmers markets, great public schools, and cultural metropolitan experiences. Onsite amenities include fully equipped break areas, company sponsored food trucks and raffle prizes, new state of the art gym, subsidized fitness classes and massage therapy, electric car charging stations and much more! We are only 5 minutes off of highway 101 and a 15-minute walk from the nearest SMART station.
