A bit about the role/company:

Guild of Guardians needs focused expertise in two realms of game design. Monetization and Economy. Because the responsibilities of those two roles often overlap or require cooperation we believe a single individual can perform the required work to meet GoG’s goals.

Economy balance and data-driven monetization lie at the heart of every free-to-play game. There will be dozens of values to tweak that can change the player’s perception of the utility and profitability of a system. The actions we expect this designer to take will directly affect the rate at which our players and investors will engage with our NFT distribution systems and content. This person will learn the systems inside and out and be able to manage the flow of currency to increase profitability.

The Economy/Monetization Designer will be a pivotal role for meeting the product goals for Guild of Guardians. We expect this designer to be responsible for all aspects referenced above and to report to the Lead Game Designer.

This is an opportunity for any designer to interact with a new and cutting-edge company that is paving the way for blockchain-based gaming to become mainstream. The right applicant should have a passion for paving the way for crypto-based gaming economies and have experience with the traditional free-to-play gaming economies we’re looking to free players from.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Take a pre-existing high-level game economy design and improve it with monetization strategies and details to pre-existing features
  • Collaborate with the design team and developers to successfully implement and tune economic and monetization content into the product
  • Manage the economy and pricing of all content within the game with in-depth macroeconomic models
  • Manage the balance between player-generated vs developer generated content while keeping positive progression and play-and-earn philosophy at the core of your design
  • You’ll have:

  • 4+  years of experience with economy design or mobile game monetization
  • Expert level quantitative skills (e.g. the skill set to translate the design into numbers)
  • A basic understanding of the blockchain
