Primal Studios is the start-up team behind the award winning Jelly Jellies. In the studio we're looking for the most talented and ambitious yet humble game development professionals on the planet to build and expand Jelly Jellies, so we can help the world become a better place. We started developing the game with the thought in mind to raise awareness on the pollution of the ocean. We're a flat organization where you'll find honesty, candid feedback, a shared ambition to raise awareness on issues in the world and a drive to deliver amazing experiences to our players. A balance between work and personal life is very important to us.

We strongly support personal growth and motivate you to expand your awareness.

How do you succeed as a Level Designer at Primal Studios? We believe strongly that content is key, and our level designers are a crucial piece of that content. As a level designer you are responsible for crafting the definitive player touchpoint for our games. You will have control of the entirety of content design, including delivering top-notch levels, conceiving of new gameplay elements, and shaping level difficulty and progression while using data analysis obtained from key performance indexes, to adjust, optimize and perfect your work.

What you'll be responsible for:

  • Design and deliver levels and associated content in all its forms across the entire product lifecycle for our social puzzle games.
  • Use data and player feedback to continuously hone and maintain existing level content.
  • Work with other team members by collaborating on multiple areas of the development process to ensure the game's success and our mission to raise awareness.

  • You have at least 6 months of experience designing puzzle experiences in the puzzle genre and more specifically in sub genres like match 3, bubble shooter, etc.
  • You have a demonstrated track record of doing your job properly.
  • You have the passion and drive inside you to create the best content & player experiences you can develop for our products and challenge other products in the same genre.

  • Reviewing games from the players' experience and give constructive feedback to the team to help to refine the best possible content we can provide.
  • You are incredibly focused on top-quality and efficient content production.

We are looking for team members who bring their own creative vision and passion into everything they do. You are willing to work as part of a start-up which means that initially there is no money involved, but legal contracts can be set up to obtain company equity in return for services. If that describes you, this is a great opportunity to work, grow, and shine in a fun and creative environment with skilled coworkers, contribute to a captivating new product, and expose your work to a global audience.

What you get when you join us:
