REMEDY ENTERTAINMENT, Finland/Espoo
Remedy Entertainment, the creator of Quantum Break® and Alan Wake®, and one of the leading independent game studios in the world is looking for a Senior Writer to help us craft the stories for the next generation of Remedy games.
What are we looking for?
As a Senior Writer, you will be a part of our writing team and create our new games with us – brainstorm story scenarios, create dialogue, characters, transmedia products, marketing materials, the works. As a part of our larger development team, you’ll work closely with other departments to implement and iterate the material you have created.
We take our storytelling and characters seriously, and want to push the boundaries of what interactive stories in games can do. Our writing team is small, tightly knit and appreciative of creative input – we’re looking for somebody to actively contribute and innovate, not just to write things to spec. At the same time, we need somebody with a firm grasp of production realities, schedules, and scope.
We enthusiastically welcome diverse viewpoints and backgrounds.
What we expect from you?
- Passion for playing games
- Excellent writer with an ear for characterization and dialogue
- Excellent verbal and written English, preferably native level
- Teamwork-oriented, able to give and take constructive criticism
- The ability to adapt yourself and your writing to changing circumstances and production realities
- Experience as a writer or narrative designer on a AAA game
Competences we appreciate but are not requirements:
- Film or TV work
- Experience of working with acting talent
So what’s in it for you then?
We offer you a chance to do something new and unique. Working as a member of our talented and experienced team with our world-class game technology means you have an excellent opportunity to develop yourself and take your career to new heights. We work hard but we also value a sane work-life balance, and we’re committed to providing our team a relaxed working environment.
The Remedy offices are situated in Espoo, Finland and relocation to the greater Helsinki area will be required. Should you be moving from abroad we are there for you every step of the way.
