Senior Systems Designer

Bungie is seeking a highly technical, creative, and team focused Designer for the Destiny team. This role will be a part of the Armor team responsible for the creative and technical implementation of Armor Rewards and improving our Build Crafting player experiences. 

As a Senior Systems Designer you are often the pioneer of new experiences and technology; working with a variety of different disciplines to initially prove out an experience and then turning the best ones into templates that we use to quickly propagate across Destiny. You will be a part of a small team to deliver those systems, as well as unblocking and empowering all members of the team.


  • Drive, coordinate, empower, and unblock the Systems teams in order to help them make amazing content
  • Ensure the Systems Team’s work is achievable by guiding them to appropriately adjust scope and ambition
  • Collaborate with other teams to ensure they understand what they can expect from how systems will change for their releases

Required Skills

  • Experience creating systems for a world class game
  • Technical experience; enough to write text-based scripts (scripting in a Lua, Python, or similar language)
  • Ability to communicate effectively across disciplines (written and verbal)
  • Desire to work as part of a large team; taking feedback and direction appropriately, and the motivation to work independently

Nice To Have Skills

  • Experience with systems design and/or development of procedural and systemic content
  • Experience working on shared world games
  • Experience in a non-design development role (artist, animator, audio, engineer, etc.)
