Curse's Design team is looking for a skilled and enthusiastic designer to work on some of the most popular gaming websites, reaching millions of users around the world.

We're looking for someone who loves games, gets psyched about the importance of clean, modern design, and is pumped about bringing that enthusiasm to Curse. Success in this role requires strong design chops, exceptional communication skills, a broad background, and a deep understanding of design and user experience principles.
