Seeking Legendary Hearthstone Mission Designer for Ludicrous Shenanigans

We are searching for a talented designer to join the ranks of our development team with a focus on designing single-player missions that flesh out the outrageous world of Hearthstone and highlight fun new mechanics.

We are seeking Designers who have in-depth knowledge of Hearthstone and working knowledge of card-game mechanics. Most importantly, the designer should have experience elegantly telling stories through gameplay and a deep understanding of recent games. Familiarity with the Warcraft universe is a definite plus.

  • Implement in-game missions using simple scripting languages.
  • Develop an in-depth understanding of Hearthstone’s tools, and contribute to the ongoing development of new tools for designers.
  • Continual iteration on mission design based on team feedback and playtests.

  • Absolute passion for playing and making video games, especially with Blizzard Entertainment products and the Warcraft universe.
