We're an independent game studio working on an interesting range of games. If you would like to join a friendly team and have a real impact on our games and direction, see what we can offer below.


We’re hiring: games Designer

We’re currently looking to add a new Designer to our award-winning team.
About The Role
Starting in the very immediate future, you’ll hit the ground running and be leading the design on an exciting, long-term, currently unannounced strategy game project. You’ll also have the opportunity to collaborate with others in the design team on a number of smaller projects also in the works.  
About You
You're a Games Designer who has demonstrable experience of design. You’ll be expected to work on every element of the design for this title (level design, systems design, crafting multiplayer experiences, and so on), while reporting regularly to our Design and Production Director to ensure the overall vision for the game is maintained.
You’ll have experience working directly with Unity (and preferably other game engines).  You’ll also understand the importance of working effectively within teams, using source control, task tracking, keeping to deadlines, and making accurate predictions on design tasks. You’ll have the ability to clearly and articulately communicate your ideas in written documentation and in person. 
Ideally - but not essentially - you’ll be a keen fan of turn-based strategy games, familiar with everything from XCOM to Civilization to Shadowrun Returns and beyond. Being a fan of boardgames and pen and paper RPGs is also a big help!
About Auroch Digital

It has worked with an enviable list of partners on video game projects - including Steve Jackson Games, Games Workshop, the BBC, and others - as well as producing a number of well-received own-IP titles.

What We Offer
We are happy to offer a very attractive salary, within a steadily growing indie game studio, working on a startlingly enviable title. This role offers a good degree of creative freedom, while working within an established production structure towards well-defined goals.
We’re proud to say that we have a carefully picked team of awesome, friendly, highly talented developers, with a strong company work ethic and a culture centred on openness, job satisfaction, and opportunities for learning and growth. We work out of a professional production environment located at the hub of Bristol’s buzzing artistic and alternative quarter, Stokes Croft.
