Job Description

Little Red Dog Games is an established international remote studio that is seeking a Senior Game Designer to join our team and conceptualize gameplay features, systems, and game mechanics. Little Red Dog Games has been developing deceptively strategic video games that look and feel different for almost a decade.

What We’re Looking For From Applicants


  • 5+ years of commercial video game design experience that includes pointing to impressive systems in at least one shipped game that you were the author of.
  • A deep passion for strategy games, particularly strategy games made by small teams. You’ve got a favorite mech, a preferred civilization or a polished deck to talk about.
Nice to haves:
  • Experience working with distributed teams.
  • Experience working in Godot
  • If you have a dog, we invite them to attend teleconferences with you.

About the dogs

We are…

…the outsiders. We’re not interested in making the same game you’ve seen before with a new skin slapped on top of it. We’re innovating. We’re doing things you’ve never seen, or forgotten were possible, making weird and wonderful products that inspire conversation.
