About Splash Damage 
 

Come join us!  


We founded Splash Damage with a mission to create lifelong friendships for our players and our employees by building the world’s most engaging multiplayer experiences with world-leading partners. Our teams have just celebrated the launch of Gears Tactics and we’re currently working on several exciting unannounced titles.

 

Our people always come first, and we acted swiftly to ensure that we moved all our employees to a work from home model during the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, and this will continue for the foreseeable future. With our first-class virtual onboarding programme, we’re able to get you up and running from your home during this time and we’re maintaining our relaxed and welcoming culture with digital social events, daily company communications and much more. We will continue to monitor the situation in line with government advice, but we will expect you to come and work with us in our friendly studio in Bromley as and when it’s safe to do so.

 

We're advocates for work-life balance and offer flexible working arrangements to suit individual needs and a comprehensive benefits package which focuses on family and mental well-being. Together with this we’ve been running a formal Equality, Diversity and Inclusion programme for nearly two years and are committed to increasing diversity across our studio.



Job Overview

UI Designers at Splash Damage turn complicated concepts and systems into intuitive and engaging experiences that enable players to interact with our game worlds and each other.

Applying user-centred design methodologies, UI Designers take ownership of UI features and drive them to completion. They create user flows, wireframes, interactive prototypes, and effectively apply colour theory and design principles to craft visual designs with a high degree of polish. After delivering mock-ups and design specs, they review the implementation to ensure it matches their vision, and use feedback from user testing to drive iteration as needed.

UI Designers are collaborative by nature and enjoy working with others to develop concepts and ideas. They see new challenges as opportunities to develop their own skills and are keen to keep honing their technical ability and expertise. UI Designers are selfless individuals who never lose sight of who they’re ultimately designing for – our players.

We believe that leveling up our skills is an essential part of the job and offer regular training opportunities and mentorship to all our UI designers.

You Have:

  • A solid background in UI design; you’ve worked on at least one commercial product for a significant period of its development and are comfortable working in Photoshop and Illustrator
  • Fluency in current design and typographical trends, with a keen eye for composition, clarity and usability
  • A can-do attitude and strong interpersonal skills; you love collaborating with others to craft solutions and can provide constructive feedback when asked
  • Solid time management and organisational skills; you can get the job done without close supervision
  • Good communication and presentation skills; you’re able to present ideas clearly and confidently both internally and to external partners
  • A real passion for UI and clear enthusiasm for games

Bonus Points for:

  • Prior game development experience
  • Experience with UI prototyping tools such as Adobe XD, Axure, Invision, or similar
  • Experience visualising UI animations in AfterEffects or Flash


Splash Damage is an equal opportunity employer. We believe our teams create better work when they have a range of perspectives to draw from, and we are committed to creating an inclusive working environment that celebrates diversity.
