Video Game Writer

Are you a skilled writer and do you enjoy playing video games? Are you a passionate storyteller who can help shape the narrative of a new game? And do you love the idea of bringing games - which can actually help people - to life? Then read on!

Who are we?

ELAUNCH offers a mobile learning platform and game-based learning projects to train staff from various companies in a fun and engaging way. Our clients include MediaMarkt Saturn, Samsung, Apple and Google. We’re looking for a Video Game Writer to bring our new game-based learning projects to life.

What will you do?

Together with our team you will work on new game-based learning projects.  Without your script, the games wouldn’t play well. There’d be no consistent plot or storyline, and the characters wouldn’t stay true to themselves. As our storyteller you will be able to leave your mark on all game-based learning projects. 

  • You’ll put all your creative writing skills and technical expertise to work.
  • You’ll help shaping gameplay to tell the desired story. Including pacing out the gameplay, writing mission dialogues and contributing to the narrative vision of the game. 
  • You'll do research, analyse games and brainstorm with our game designers for new microgame concepts
  • You’ll ensure the gameplay is a good fit for the target demographic. You’ll also look for inconsistencies in the script, story, and gameplay.
  • You’ll write blogs about our projects to keep our targeted audience informed. 
  • You’ll plan, execute, evaluate and document your work in an impressive way. 

    What do we offer?

    • 40 hours of fun each week! This is a super fun and interesting job at a company where creativity and technology come together and apps, games and beautiful content are developed. 
    • The opportunity to use all your creativity and writing skills to develop cool and effective end products
    • A wide range of tasks, incl. writing dialogue, creating characters and different story concepts. 
    • The opportunity to work for a scale-up with international customers and plans to expand to other countries
    • A professional but informal work environment, with great coffee, free icecream (fair use policy) and interesting brainstorming and pizza-sessions. 
    • An easily accessible office in Amstelveen, very close to Amsterdam
    • Good salary and benefits, including flexible working hours

    What do you offer?

    • You have great writing skills. You are able to write great content and ensure it’s ready for an audience to devour.
    • You’re passionate about games and are familiar with the industry. 
    • You’ll have at least five years of experience in writing video game content
    • You’re willing to do research for improving your skills to create engaging (and accurate) content for different type of games
    • You're a team player. You need to collaborate with other team members, so you’ll need to work effectively with them.
    • You go for quality, but you make sure you meet deadlines and keep pace. 
    • If you’re familiar with Unity then that’s a plus
    • You enjoy working for a scale-up, you feel at home in a professional but informal company culture.
    • You have a good sense of humor. Or at least you think you do.
