About the role


UI/UX Designer Role:

We're looking for a talented UI/UX Designer to bring our mobile turn-based tactics game to life with distinctive flair! If you love games like Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy Tactics and are eager to help waifus and husbandos look their sharpest, hit us up!

What you’ll do:

  • Design and mock up the user interfaces of our games in your favorite design tool (figma, photoshop, origami studio, etc.), ensuring that they are visually appealing and easy to use.
  • Collaborate with game designers, artists, and developers to define and refine the game's user interface and user experience
  • Develop reusable UI components and libraries for use across multiple games and projects.

You might be a great fit if:

You love the art of user interfaces.

We’re looking for someone with ideally 3+ years of mobile game UI / UX experience, who is as comfortable with designing high-tech futuristic interfaces as they are minimalistic app designs.Our games boast unique gameplay mechanics with varying graphic / VFX assets, so the ability to envision and implement cohesive experiences is a must.

Your user empathy blossoms in both the stylistic and the functional.

If your goal as a designer is to create one of the most iconic but intuitive menu experiences in the mobile game industry, then Spellbrush is the right company to join! We pride our exploration of aesthetics while maintaining a high standard for usability.

The anime aesthetic resonates with you.

It's no secret – we're huge anime enthusiasts. A deep understanding of audiences who enjoy anime, mobile gacha games, and turn-based tactics games is critical to build the optimal designs for our audiences.

You're comfortable working on small, fast-paced, on-site teams

Working here will feel very much like a small indie studio: close-knit, with high ownership and flexibility. We’re also an in-person studio. Our games team is at our office in downtown San Francisco, CA, 3-4x a week!

And you're excited about the potential of Generative AI.

You'll also be working closely with some of the best AI researchers in the world: we develop all our own in-house models. You won’t be using Generative AI simply as a vehicle for producing cheap assets. (We simply don’t believe that is an effective workflow). You’ll be working with the research team to explore the frontier of what is possible at the intersection of machine learning, art, and games.

The base salary range for this position is $60,000 - $140,000. The final base salary is dependent upon location, experience, fit, and other factors. In addition, we offer a generous compensation package that includes equity, top-tier employer-sponsored health, dental, and vision insurance, and additional perks!

At Spellbrush, we value creativity, collaboration, and innovation. If you're excited about working with cutting-edge technology and passionate about anime, gaming, and design, we'd love to hear from you. Apply now to join our team as a Game UI / UX Designer!

To apply - please share your previous work experience/resume, portfolio, and any links to previous relevant works and the name of the best waifu or husbando in your message!
