As a Content Design Manager at our development studio in Stockholm, you will be functional manager of all Content Designers and Technical Scripters with the overall responsibility for making sure our project managers have access to the best Content Designer or Technical Scripter for the game project at hand. You will not work directly with creating content for the games but rather lead, coach and influence your guild as well as making sure the rest of the company uses their skills in the best possible way.
Content Designers implement scripted game content such as narrative stories, game events or certain game features and also do research and manage the game?s databases.

*Gather information from Project Leads and continuously evaluate and give feedback to Content Designers
*Assume Personnel Responsibility, handling employee issues affecting the work of employees ensuring a good work environment and that legal requirements are met
*Occasionally, assist in writing text content for games and implementing by scripting triggers and events using our in-house scripting language
*3+ years of games industry experience in a content design/quest design/writing role or similar. Other content design/writing experience (movies, RPGs, literary) might make up for this.
*Fluent in English, both written and spoken
*Previous experience in a manager or mentoring role is required
*Technical scripting ability, or programming experience, will be considered an advantage, as will basic experience with any scripting language (Lua, Python, html, php etc)
*Familiarity with and/or interest in Paradox Interactive?s games and brands
