We are Fatshark

We are a critically acclaimed Swedish game development studio with about 180 experienced and skilled employees. We are most well-known for developing the Warhammer: Vermintide franchise, but have also helped develop a number of AAA titles and we launched the highly anticipated game Warhammer 40,000: Darktide.

We have grown quite a bit over the last few years and are almost two-hundred “Sharks” now, but we still embrace the same values that we started with. Come into our world, a world known for our crazy internally designed socks, hackweeks, and Friday afternoons for studio-wide “social play” time. It all adds up to an approachable, fun, passion-driven yet communal environment for us to work in.

The role

We’re looking for a narrative designer of mid- to senior level experience to join our newest game team for a recently started project.

You’ll work in a close-knit team with other narrative professionals, artists and game designers to deliver a world-class entertainment experience.

At Fatshark, we work in a highly agile, collaborative and creative team environment, and you can expect to take on a wide variety of tasks which all have the same goal: creating strong narrative to match the ambitious goals of our project.

  • Work with level designers to implement level/mission narrative
  • Work with UI designers to ensure quality UI-narrative integration
  • Ensure items, objects and locations etc in the game world all have a logical and immersive narrative context
  • Design narrative features and systems
  • Understand and promote the narrative identity of the universe as well as the narrative experience in all aspects of the game
  • Maintain a holistic view of the project, always supporting colleagues and working to help the team succeed in its objectives
