The Role 

Splash Damage's Senior UI Designers bring the project UI user experience vision to life by applying their 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. Together with the UI Design Lead, they establish the design direction for our interfaces; crafting designs, prototypes, and animations with a high degree of polish while working closely with UI engineers to get the best out of our technology.  

We trust our Senior UI Designers to work autonomously and make intelligent decisions with the information at hand. They understand how to communicate the team’s solutions verbally and visually to stakeholders. They always look for ways to push themselves and their projects further and look for opportunities to share their experience with members of their team and the wider UI department. 

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

  • Demonstrable interest in UI design for games; you’ve worked on at least 1 commercial project from inception to delivery

  • Player-centred approach to UX design, with solid knowledge of design processes and methodologies
