Game Director

We're looking to build a world-class team of game-makers: folks bursting with creativity, who balance candor with compassion, and always, always, always hold themselves and their peers accountable to what's best for players.

Many things make Believers who we are, but our defining characteristic is an unwavering dedication to the player experience. We believe that player-first development is critical for games, esports, and all forms of media that allow us to engage with our favorite worlds and heroes. We are not just a game company, we are a company for Gamers. We believe that collaboration and diverse thought drive innovation, and we foster a development culture around that principle.

As a Game Director, you will work closely with leadership and all disciplines to champion the most resonant game for our Players. You’ll shape the product vision and find ways to help the team translate it to product completion. You will report to the Chief Product Officer.

What you'll do:

  • Drive the creation, curation and oversight of implementation of a multi-year audience-focused strategy that will delight the product’s players

  • Work with studio leadership and players to update and chaperone the goals the product must meet for its audience

  • Hire, place and oversee product owners for longer-term feature and content teams

  • Provide clear goals, direction, and approach to empower the team at all levels to make effective decisions and translate them into tangible work products

You are a great fit if:

  • 10+ years of applied experience as a leader (3 to 100+ people) in game development

  • Proven track record of team scaling and leadership development

  • Deep understanding of player motivations for online PvE games

  • Experience shipping a game from prototype

Please note - research shows that certain groups of candidates may not apply to jobs unless they meet every single requirement. If you see yourself at Believer but don't check every single requirement, we would still love to be in touch with you for current and future opportunities.

What we offer:

Annual salary range: $222,000-$306,000

Making great games is hard, so we do our best to make the other parts less hard.

  • Great compensation package and equity

  • Medical, dental, vision, short-term disability, long-term disability, and life insurance. Believer pays 100% of monthly costs for these plans

  • 401(k) with 100% employer matching up to 6% of salary

  • Access to Rightway service to help you navigate health insurance

  • Spring Health mental health services

  • 10 observed holidays + 10 days for Winter Break and "Take What You Need" PTO policy

  • Remote-friendly team #LI-Remote

  • We are committed to continuing to expand our benefits and perks to support all Believers

About The Believer Company

Believer is a global games company with developers all over the world, headquartered in Los Angeles, California.

We've built our lives around creating and serving games we're proud of — from Words With Friends to League of Legends, from Destiny to Plants vs. Zombies. We hope you've enjoyed them, and if our wishes have come true, you're still playing them today.

We still think this is just the beginning.

We are Believers, bonded together by a deep love for players, and a commitment to put them at the center of the games we create, the worlds we build, the stories we tell, and the business we run to keep the fun going for as long as players keep believing.
