Game Designer

Want to build war games?

As a game designer at Battlehouse you’re shipping content and features for browser-based real-time strategy games serving millions of hours of play in over 80 countries.

You’re working with startup co-founders on a leading-edge HTML5 game engine with an exceptional team from Lucasfilm and Disney. Your check-ins ship regularly to production servers and shape the future of the company.

What you create today builds the foundation of new browser-based and mobile titles that will become landmarks in the game industry.

We’re based in Canada with a distributed team, similar to Github, WordPress, and open source projects. Team members have freedom to work wherever they choose thanks to video conferencing and online collaboration tools. Past and current contributors travel the world while at Battlehouse, working out of Madrid, San Francisco, Seoul, Dallas, Banff, Toronto and Waterloo.
