If you’re looking to make the best co-op games in the world, you’ve come to the right place. We're proud to have some of the best game makers and collaborators in the industry under our four walls. What's more, we're a fun bunch of game developers, who love to indulge in our passion for video games together. Our games are not for everyone. Are they for you?
We are now looking for a Monetization Designer!
The Monetization Designer plays a central role in Helldivers 2. At Arrowhead, our intention is to provide a live service to our players, not just a static game. That includes providing a treasure chest of toys that grows and grows over the life of the game.We do have items that can be gained by paying real money. However, we are adamantly not making a pay-to-win game, and neither are we pursuing a traditional FOMO-driven battle pass approach. We are modeling a different type of live service, and our monetization goals reflect those values. Are you an experienced Monetization Designer who is interested in working with these constraints? Are you interested in the challenge of designing and modifying a monetization plan over a lengthy live period? Are you conversant with the balance between in-game resources and paid products? Then please apply to this role, and let’s have a conversation!
