ABOUT MEGAZEBRA

At MegaZebra we craft category-leading games. Based in Munich, Germany, and Montréal, Canada, we develop our own original titles and games based on “Hollywood”-IP such as the Desperate Housewives Game. By combining technology, game-design, art, analytics, and bringing together passionate people from around the globe we have repeatedly been able to produce hit games.

We develop all our games in small and vibrant teams. Each team enjoys a high degree of autonomy and is committed to creating something outstanding. We are now looking for an experienced Writer / Content Designer to join our office in Montréal.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Working closely with the game’s producer and game designer to define narrative storylines
  • Writing compelling dialogue with wit and humour
  • Working together with game designers to define quest lines and implement them in the game, using simple scripting logic within proprietary tools
  • Revising pre-written text as needed
  • Researching similar or relating media formats and their target group

YOUR PROFILE

  • Excellent creative writing skills in English (as native speaker)
  • Several years of experience as a writer/story developer or story editor
  • Good understanding of what style of writing works best in video games and how game quests work
  • A great sense of humor and the ability to deliver this in short text snippets
  • Understanding and living American culture
  • Interest in story-lines as seen in the top-charts for books / Kindle on Amazon
  • Ability to write compelling stories across genres
  • Background as a published writer of novels or short-stories is a plus
  • Experience with writing in American English
  • Ability to work with our internal tools to input story and quests into the game
  • Pro-active self-starter attitude
  • You like working in a high-power team and thrive doing so
  • You have the desire to create world-class story, dialogue and quests
  • Previous experience in writing for computer games is of great advantage

YOUR BENEFITS

  • Become part of the company which develops category-leading, cross-platform games on mobile and Facebook
  • Develop games that are among the fastest growing apps on mobile and Facebook
  • Work in a highly creative environment with a super-flat hierarchy
  • Join our new office in Montréal. Work with a very experienced and talented group of game-designers at our centrally located office. Experience start-up spirit and the ability to have significant impact
  • At the same time, you will be able to plug into our capabilities as a fully-fledged video-game development studio. MegaZebra has an eight-year track-record developing and publishing our own games. So, you get the best of both worlds
