Reports to: CIO
thatgamecompany is best recognized for creating award-winning, enriching, and meaningful game titles such as Journey, Flower, and flOw. Our most recent game, Sky, is our most complex undertaking to date. It is a social network built around the values inherited from a powerful humanistic story. It is a live experience continuously evolving inside a global online theme park.
Sky has an amazing and vibrant community of socially minded players, and we are tirelessly working to ensure that players feel safe and supported. As with any online system, we are not immune to bad actors attempting to undermine our game ecosystem and platform. While we do not request identifiable information from our players and we make significant efforts to protect their privacy, we do track certain events in Sky in order to improve our player experience.
We are looking for a creative UX/UI product designer to to come up with a novel way to use, interpret, and/or visualize this data, potentially in the service of identifying player relationships, threats to player safety (negative behavior, harassment), or other bad actors (such as hackers or bots).
