UI/UX DESIGNER (Reykjavik)

Join 1939 Games to work on KARDS – The World War II Card Game. 1939 Games was founded by CCP (EVE Online ) veterans, Ívar and Guðmundur Kristjánsson, brothers with over 30 years of games industry experience between them. With a shared interest in collectible card games and WWII, the duo wanted a game that combined their passions. When they could not find one, they set out to make it themselves.

KARDS is that game, a digital collectible card game set in World War II. Fusing traditional card game elements with WWII thematics and strategy, Kards is an elegant, action-packed experience that stands apart within the genre.

The company is well funded through its revenue from KARDS which is already released for PC on Steam and recent $5.3M funding to secure successful development and launch of the mobile version of KARDS and ongoing future development of the game. 

We are looking for an experienced UI/UX designer to work on KARDS.

Here is what you will be doing with us:

  • Work with programmers, game designers, and other UI/UX designers to create interfaces for Kards and future games.
  • Design of UI functionality.
  • Use engine/animation tools to bring the UI to life.
  • Implement Unreal Engine UI systems in Widgets and Blueprints.
  • Create functional and responsive UI systems.
  • Implement UI design assets in-game.
  • Creating wireframes, storyboards, user flows, and process flows.


  • Work closely with team members, communicating regularly.
  • Expert knowledge of Adobe Creative Cloud.
  • Solid time management and organizational skills; you can get the job done without close supervision.

Very much appreciated:

  • A can-do attitude and strong interpersonal skills; you love collaborating with others to implement systems.
  • Knowledge of Unreal/Unity user interface systems.

In return, we offer an exciting and interesting game concept to work within a highly skilled and relaxed team.
We can offer a competitive salary and location in downtown Reykjavík.

All applications must be in English and include a portfolio.
