Gameplay Programmer Wanted!
We are seeking a specialist in gameplay engineering with the desire and ability to help shape the technology of a new sci-fi adventure game.
As a Senior Gameplay Engineer, you’ll collaborate closely with other creatives on a multi-disciplinary team. You don’t just bring the technical skills for building complex tools and systems - you also have the experience and good judgment to build simple ones. You’re a generous mentor and creative partner, exchanging thoughtful and meaningful feedback with your colleagues.
As part of our small, experienced team, you will have the opportunity and the responsibility to push the game’s quality and iteration speed. Our project has ambitious visual and narrative elements - VFX, environment, character, dialog and ability systems that will interact in novel ways. This role will be foundational in defining not only the in-engine architecture for these elements, but how the team creates and iterates together more broadly.
Unreal Engine 5 offers a superb technical starting point with solutions for many of the problems that a modern creative team will encounter. We are seeking an engineer with strong technical & gameplay design sensibilities, who can judge when the engine’s in-built features are sufficient and when they must be extended or even replaced.
