Job posting for senior mobile designer reveals ambitions of casual studio's Eire team
It looks like PopCap is planning to develop new IP for mobile games platforms at its studio in Ireland.
According to a job posting on the Develop site, the firm is looking for a senior mobile designer at its Dublin-based studio.
Specifically, the firm - famous for hits like Bejewelled, Peggle and Plants vs Zombies, all of which were developed in Seattle - is looking for "an experienced game designer tasked with working with a small, professional development team, looking for the challenge of adapting existing titles and creating brand spin offs, with the ability of moving the studio to original IP development on a variety of handheld, mobile and social platforms".
The posting adds that the right candidate will have to "deliver innovative and engaging designs within the scope of the original IP, the technical limitations of the target platform and the constraints of the project schedule, all the while maintaining PopCap’s standard of quality".
