Are you passionate about creating a fun and educational experience for children? Do you love cooking and tasting recipes from different countries? Are you looking to enhance your experience working with children while being involved with a Silicon Valley Startup?

We are looking for a rockstar product/game designer with experience in creating educational games for elementary school students. We would love it if you have UX research, UI, and Graphic design skills. The lead game/product designer takes nebulous concepts jotted down in brainstorming sessions and fashions them into clear, concise design documentation for game locations, characters, rules, story, objects, interface, and modes.

To succeed in this role, you must be a creative visionary, have a solid knowledge of next-generation platforms, and have a strong foundation in 2-D and 3-D illustration software. Some skills are needed in programming—at least at the scripting level. You should familiarize yourself with Ruby, HAXE, Unity, and Java languages, as well as 3D Studio Max and Maya. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are a must, as is time management and effective leadership.

Duties & Responsibilities

Implement new game features/
Work with artists and sound designers to implement art and audio into the slot game through scripts and code
Contribute ideas to the design of new features games

Chef Koochooloo is a mobile + social + educational platform that teaches kids about math, science, and geography through cooking. We have been piloting our curriculum in various Silicon Valley schools and received exceptional feedback.

You can check out our current prototype on iTunes, we would need your help to improve this app and monetize it.
