Posted on Monday, February 5, 2024
At Improbable, we’ve been venturing into unexplored territory for over a decade, seeking new ways to connect people and amplify their lives. We’re shaping virtual worlds of unprecedented scale for the gaming, web3, and related sectors, creating world-changing technology from Morpheus to M2. With us, you’ll tackle questions that no one else is asking and find answers that define the future.
We’re leading the way in defining what the metaverse can be. This is where you get to explore interconnected, immersive, exciting worlds that have never been seen before and where you decide what the future looks like. Are you ready?
Improbable is creating innovative online events and experiences that support 1000s of simultaneous players. Check out some of our examples here! We want to further explore the possibilities of massive live events across a wide variety of fields including sports, education, music and art - all supported on any device.
Consider global sports fans gathering in virtual arenas, interactive live concerts, and mass-participation games - bridging geographical gaps, creating new jobs for hosts and content creators and bringing people together. We want you to help us build the next generation of massively multiplayer live experiences!

Your Opportunity:

  • Lead a team of technical designers in creating, expanding and utilising game systems, design new workflows, and collaborate regularly with other disciplines.
  • Develop the skills of more junior technical designers, give regular and high quality feedback
  • Offer valuable insights and feedback on the overall quality of the user experience, drawing from your unique perspective
  • Be accountable for large systems in our experiences, crossing multiple features and gameplay areas.
  • Provide support for specific aspects of projects, such as interactive spaces, quests, social interactions, dynamic events, balance, and more, as part of broader development efforts.

Why You're Made for This:

  • Unreal Engine Expertise: You are an expert in Unreal blueprints and in many aspects of the engine.
  • Growth mindset: A desire to grow and develop a team, considering each individual's well-being and differing needs.
  • Prioritisation: Ability to prioritise and manage end-to-end design projects across the team, interfacing with different disciplines.
  • Embrace Exploration: You're open-minded with the willingness to explore uncharted territory, shaping unique social experiences in virtual spaces.
  • Broad interests: You have experience in creating interactive environments, social interactions, virtual economies, or in emergent storytelling.
  • Real-time Expertise: You grasp the significance of real-time interactions, persistent world mechanics, and their impact on user engagement, accessibility, and long-term involvement.
This role is available as remote, hybrid or in-office. We have a great office space in Spitalfields in London but are equally happy if you'd prefer to work from home some, or all of the time. We are 'Flexa' certified, meaning our entire employee experience is anchored around flexibility and autonomy.
While we think the above experience could be important, we’re keen to hear from people that believe they have valuable experience to bring to the role. If you identify with the team and mission, but not all of our requirements, then please still apply.
