Game Designers & Producers

The Tap Lab is a mobile gaming company based in Cambridge, MA. Our company mission is to bring daydreams to life through games that spark the imagination and seamlessly integrate with today’s fast-paced mobile lifestyle.

An ideal candidate for us would be someone who loves playing games, and beyond that, fully experiences and enjoys the design that went into them. When you play games (whether it's Angry Birds, Farmville, or StarCraft), you think about how the design decisions and architecture behind the scenes influence the player's happiness and satisfaction with their experience.

You'll be a part of a small but mighty team and be heavily involved in all parts of the business. We're looking to build the future of mobile gaming!

Roles & Responsibilities

You will be a product owner for our upcoming projects. You’ll be responsible for making key design decisions during pre-production, managing and continually improving the game post launch, and coordinating with the art and development teams.

  • Game Design - Creating and maintaining GDDs, flows, mockups, etc.
  • Product Management - Running live-ops on our games, you must be a dashboard junkie.
  • Production (Project Management) - Coordinating with art and dev teams to get things done.

Skills & Requirements

  • Deep knowledge and passion for free-to-play game design.
  • Experience designing, launching and managing free-to-play mobile games.
  • Experience running live-ops on multiple platforms (iOS, Android, etc.)
  • Show us that you pick up new things quickly. Being on the cutting edge of mobile gaming requires that we not only stay on top of the latest systems and mechanics, but are also consistently innovating.
  • You should have a ton of mobile games on your phone, be playing the games featured by the platforms each week, and understand why the top grossing games are succeeding.

Compensation

Compensation will be competitive and based on your experience. Now by experience, we mean quality, not quantity – 6 months of building a great mobile game is more important to us than 6 years building mobile apps.
