Epic Games is looking for Senior Technical Designers to join our team working on Fortnite. As a Senior Technical Designer, you’ll play a directing role in an initiative based cross-disciplinary team that improves the health and quality of Fortnite. Your expertise in game design and your exemplary technical skills will identify and help implement the most cost-effective technical solutions to problems that designers face. You’ll be supported by engineers and design leadership as you pick your own impact on the design group you’re assigned to. Much of your work will be informed by dogfooding periods of implementing industry shaping design content that ships with Fortnite. You’ll use that hands-on experience to inform choices about tech debt, new design creation, tools, human processes, and strategic goals in an environment that values your input and expects you to solve big problems that affect everyone in your design group. While most of Fortnite functions on a seasonal cadence, you’ll work closely with a producer to make sure your team is solving problems that are too big to fix the right way in a single season.
Tech Design is a broad discipline, and nearly every Technical Designer has a different specialization. You should check a lot of these boxes, but we don’t expect anyone to check them all. You might even have some of your own boxes to add to the list.
