Job Description

Homa is a gaming technology lab that gives game creators the data-driven tools and human expertise needed to turn their creative ideas into commercial hits. The technology we create is used by game creators around the world to create games that hit players' sweet spot, and the commercial jackpot.

Our “Homa Lab” platform gives game creators a comprehensive set of tools and solutions that lets them keep their eyes on new trends and ideas, execute real-time A/B testing of all their game's features through a no-code SDK, and distribute and monetize their games as well. It's a full end-to-end digital ecosystem that ensures developers are focused on the right idea, building games with every feature optimized, and distributing them at the right time, to people eager to play them, worldwide.

Does it work? Yep. Apps powered by our tech have been downloaded more than 1 billion times. And a lot of that is because we don't just sell our platform to clients and wish them well. We partner with them long-term, we make one hit, then we make some more. Homa is 50% a technology platform and 50% a collaborative, transparent partnership.

As a team, we're over 160 people and 34+ nationalities strong. Some of us are artists, some of us are business developers, engineers, entrepreneurs or former strategy consultants – but we're all here for the same thing: to take over the gaming industry by giving creators the data to transform their ideas into games played and money made.

Since inception, Homa raised a total of $165M to achieve this mission, with the participation of Headline, Northzone, Eurazeo, Singular, Quadrille Capital, Fabric Ventures and Bpifrance - along with renowned business angels, including King and FuboTV founders, and Spotify founder Daniel Ek’s family office.

Homa is looking for an experienced Lead Game Designer to lead a team working on a brand new game and IP. As a Lead Game Designer, you will manage the team in charge of designing and optimizing the player experience. Your player insight, knowledge of F2P engagement and monetization best-practices, and creativity will be essential to create great experiences for the players.

We are building games in the mid-core segment, specifically built around RPG, city-building and battling / shooting features. We are also introducing new web3 features enabled by the blockchain technology. Designing those games, you will work closely with other designers, engineers, and artists to create and iterate on a variety of features ranging from meta, systems, and economy design to content or level design. The ideal candidate can wear many hats and collaborate on every aspect of the games. Flexibility and the ability to adapt will be crucial to your success.

We work as a small and new team in a dynamic and agile environment – this requires comfort operating in an ambiguous environment where goals and constraints are mostly team driven and where change, big and small, is a critical part of the development process.
