About the role
You will support members of the Learning & Development team in transforming the way people learn. Games aren’t made just for kids! Gaming is a great way for people of all ages to learn. Gamification is the process of adding game logic in order to achieve better outcomes. Not to be confused with a video game designer, the gamification designer combines game logic with everyday activities, events, products, and services. As a gamification designer, you’ll work with technologists, designers and business people to make the world a more playfully challenging place.
By making otherwise boring or difficult activities into one of fun and (literally) games, the gamification designer can motivate people, help them heal, inspire better customer experiences, or make better habits.
Essential Job Functions
You day-to-day role will be to support the L&D team, with particular focus on:
Random acts of kindness make the workplace a better place so, go out of your way to be helpful, and give people reasons to smile
Life is complicated enough. Don’t make it harder for yourself, or for others. Sometimes the simplest approach works wonders.
Every great business started with a flash of inspiration. If you’ve got a great idea, don’t keep it to yourself.
At Octopus, we recognise the importance of embracing diversity in order to create a high-performance culture.
