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

Splash Damage's Senior UI Designers bring the user experience vision for our projects to life by applying their substantial experience and technical expertise.

Senior UI Designers are well-versed in user-centred design methodologies and make a major impact at all stages of the UI design workflow. They establish the visual design direction for our interfaces, craft both static designs and animations with the highest degree of polish, and work closely with our UI engineers to get the best out of our technology.

Senior UI Designers can work autonomously and make smart decisions with the information at hand. They effectively communicate their team’s solutions both verbally and visually, and can represent their team both internally as well as to external partners. They always look for ways to push themselves and their projects further, and regularly pass their experience on to other members of their team.

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

  • Strong background in UI design for video games; you’ve worked on at least 1 commercial project from inception to delivery and know Photoshop and Illustrator like the back of your hand

  • Exceptional fluency in current and upcoming design as well as typographical trends, with a keen eye for composition, clarity and usability
  • Solid understanding of animation principles and the ability to visualise UI animations in AfterEffects or Flash
  • A can-do attitude and strong teamwork skills; you love working with others to craft solutions and can provide direction and feedback to other designers when needed
  • Great time management and organisational skills; you can plan projects at both roadmap and sprint-level and get the job done without close supervision
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills; you’re able to present ideas clearly and confidently to audiences of all experience levels
