Summary

We are looking for a talented mobile games UI Designer to help us raise the bar for our new genre-bending social casino app being built in Unity. You will be working with internal teams, as well as external partners, to create compelling UI visuals that leverage your expertise in mobile user interaction, motion design, and user-centered design principles. The candidate will collaborate closely with UX, Art, Game Design, Engineering, and Product. The ability to distill complex problems into simple, elegant solutions is key to success in this role.

  • Visual Comps and Animatics - Including but not limited to storyboards, user flows, motion comps, and related FX.
  • Understand platform requirements (e.g. Unity/Cocos) and mobile-specific requirements (portrait vs landscape for cross-platform design).
  • Collaborate and communicate with art directors, UX designers, game designers, producers & tech artists in the creation and implementation of the game UI.
  • Push boundaries - Explore the latest design trends to continue growing and contributing to the growth of those around you.
  • Adapt visual styles as needed while maintaining creative, technical, and brand standards universally

  • Extensive experience with Adobe Creative Suite, (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects) and wireframing software (Figma, Principle, Miro).
  • A highly collaborative team player, open to critiques from many disciplines.
  • Motivated and proactive. Independent, organized yet flexible, and able to prioritize effectively with the big picture in mind.
  • Relentlessly curious - Continuously learning and seeking opportunities to experiment, fail fast, optimize workflows, and foster open communication.
