About Mythical Games

We are Mythical Games, a next-generation game technology studio. We believe that true ownership of digital assets, verifiable scarcity, and integrated secondary markets will spawn a new generation of games. These new economies, based on digital ownership, will bring players, developers, and content creators closer to the games they love.

Job Description

We are currently looking for an experienced, creative, and artistically talented User Experience Designer to join our growing Creative Team based in Seattle, WA. The UX Designer will work collaboratively with art, design, engineering, and production to rally around a consistent vision for user experience and UI.

Our Seattle office is located in the heart of quirky, creative Ballard. When we’re not making awesome games, we’re out sampling the delicious food Ballard has to offer; we’re sipping coffee (or tea) at our favorite coffee shops, or we’re engrossed in epic table-top battles at Cafe Mox. We’re passionate about creating a tight-knit work environment that feels like you’re hanging out with your friends.

COVID-19 Hiring Update: We’ve transitioned to a work-from-home model and were continuing to interview and hire during this time. This role is expected to begin as a remote position. We understand each person’s circumstances may be unique and will work with you to explore possible interim options.

  • Help steer strategic creative decisions and ensure consistency of vision with all efforts related to the project.
  • Coordinate with developers to architect technical requirements for features and ongoing design iterations
  • Manage the necessary user-experience between all aspects of the game via cross-team collaboration, such as; audio, accessibility, UI design, development, etc
  • Work with PM to define user stories and journey maps,
  • Manage user-research and user-testing

Requirements:

  • Experience working as a UX designer in gaming, marketplace, and/or an interactive design field.

  • Exceptional ability to conceptualize, pitch, and implement game concepts using various tools, technology, and visual language.
  • Positive attitude and the ability to receive and provide objective feedback.

Pluses:

  • Ability to create interactive walkthroughs in InVision, Adobe XD (or any walkthrough tool) to present the flow of screens
  • Proficient in multiple design tools (Adobe Creative Suite (XD, Photoshop, Illustrator), Sketch, Framer, Principle, Zeplin, or Flinto).
