As Glass Cannon Unplugged, we have a very straightforward mission. We choose video games that we believe have significantly influenced their genre and that just appeal to us in terms of translating them to the language of tabletop.

Recruitment – Senior Tabletop Roleplaying Game Designer

Welcome, traveler. Have a seat and take a moment to listen to my story.

We are Glass Cannon Unplugged. Over two years ago, we made some noise with our Kickstarter campaign for Frostpunk: The Board Game. Now, we are fulfilling our promise and delivering the game to the tables of our supporters. But that’s not all we have on board! We have already announced board game adaptations of Apex Legends and Dying Light… and that’s still not everything! More big news announcing new projects will soon echo across the Internet and every basement on the face of the Earth ;-).

Are you in?

Then keep reading.

  • Ability to create feedback based on playtests.
  • Independence.
  • Skill in implementing feedback from playtests into the game prototype.
  • Ability to translate project assumptions and documentation into results.
  • Setting realistic project delivery dates.
  • Flexibility in project implementation.
  • Ability to effectively search for industry information.

  • Proficiency in English enabling fluent communication and a vocabulary related specifically to roleplaying games both in speech and writing.

Nice to have:

  • Experience in organizing playtests.
  • Skill in translating RPG rules (we will check this!).
  • Familiarity with the portal.
  • Knowledge of crowdfunding (Kickstarter, Gamefound) in terms of roleplaying games.
  • Familiarity with Tabletop Simulator / Tabletopia environments.
  • Experience in game design (at least 1 published title).
  • Initiative and energy in project implementation.

What we offer:

  • Salary depending on experience + skills.
  • Employment contract or another convenient form of cooperation.
  • Open, friendly, and tolerant work environment.
  • Working with people who share your passions for very interesting projects.
  • Flexible working hours and option for home office.
  • Conveniently located office (at the intersection of Hallera and Powstańców Śląskich streets in Wrocław and remote work if you live elsewhere).
  • A huge collection of board games and roleplaying games in the office.
