Lead UI/UX Designer
Art/Design | Mountain View, CA, United States

Game Closure is looking for a Lead UI/UX Designer to help us build the world's best mobile game engine. We are 25-strong and growing (carefully). If you want to join a great team, develop cool games and cutting-edge technology and have an impact, then we want to talk to you.


Game Closure is democratizing mobile game development using HTML5, allowing developers to build a game once and launch seamlessly on a variety of mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.).

You will work with talented artists and producers, and the best engineers in the world -- we have top talent in every part of our stack, from server architecture to browser optimization to Android internals -- on the hardest problems in mobile and social gaming, and create beautiful, frictionless games.

A few other tidbits:
- Backed by top-tier investors, including Highland, Benchmark and Greylock.
- Located in Mountain View, right off Caltrain and in the heart of the Castro Street restaurant corridor.
- We offer truly meaningful equity -- we want you to feel like a partner in our business and share in its success -- and competitive pay and full benefits

Our Lead UI/UX Designer will create flows, wireframes and other UX documentation for all Game Closure products -- our game development framework AND internal mobile games. You will build and lead a team of talented designers, guiding the development of best UI/UX practices and embedding them into all product teams. And you will offer creative input --- nurturing the future development of our platform and games.

We don't have an exhaustive list of criteria for this role -- we're still at the size where we can still fit the role around the individual and their interests (rather than the other way around). Simply put, we're looking for hands-on, experienced UI/UX designers, with experience successfully working with teams to build great games and technology products.

If this sounds like an interesting challenge, this role will be perfect for you.


In addition to a great work environment and solid compensation and benefits, Game Closure offers:

- Ownership: We're a small team, and we empower our people to pursue novel approaches.
- Challenge(s): What we're doing isn't easy. We're working every day to solve the hardest problems in mobile game development.
- Skills: There's zero stagnation here. We use the latest tools and technologies every day. You can touch everything and see your influence on real, shipping products
- Creative input: Ideas are valued from all corners of Game Closure, and we work fast -- that idea can go from concept to live in short order.
- Community. Closures hang together. We take care of our people and believe it makes us stronger as a company. We enjoy working together and relaxing together.
