I worked on Jagex’s flagship MMORPG, RuneScape, for around 5 years:
- August 2008 – November 2009: Content Developer (scripter/designer/writer)
- August 2011 – January 2013: Senior Game Designer
- January 2013 – August 2015: Design Team Leader
- Including November 2013 – October 2014: Acting Monetisation Manager
In this time I had roles on countless updates (I didn’t keep a list and I haven’t succeeded in finding one since) as designer, writer, scripter, design reviewer or product owner.
As design team leader I also line managed the RS design team (all the designated designers; content developers filled two further teams), taking responsibility for their professional development and other management issues. As monetisation manager I oversaw a mixed-discipline group of around 20, working with their line managers to matrix-manage them.
