Incubation Social Systems Design Lead

Bungie is seeking a highly technical, creative, and team focused Designer for an unannounced project. This role will be responsible for the creative and technical implementation of Social Systems, the player’s sense of history as well as improving the player’s account value.

As a Systems Design Lead 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 build the social systems on this new project. You will lead a small team to deliver those systems, unblocking and empowering all members of the team and leading collaboration with partner teams.

During these uncertain times and rapidly changing environment surrounding COVID-19, all positions at Bungie are subject to onboarding and working virtually/remotely. Once the studio is fully reopened, most work is expected to be performed in-person at our main headquarters in Bellevue, Washington.


  • Drive, coordinate, empower, and unblock the Systems teams in order to help them make amazing systems
  • 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.)
