  • Fluent English writer and speaker
  • Strong portfolio of prior work in game engine rendering any of: shaders, rendering pipelines, post-processing, complex lighting solutions, etc.
  • Out-of-the-box thinker; we're doing something very different, so conventional approaches sometimes won't work

  • Deep understanding of Unity's scriptable render pipeline
  • Expertise in both HLSL coding and Unity's Shadergraph
  • Expertise in particle effects
  • A love of Pixel Art style

Update: Brad Petry, the Project Lead behind One Lonely Outpost, will be hosting an AMA in the Work With Indies Discord on Thursday, May 27th at 12PM PT / 3PM ET. Join us for a conversation about the advantages of growing your farm on an alien planet, if we can pet the robo-cow, and their three open job positions.

About One Lonely Outpost:

Start a farming colony and grow it into a vibrant community. Choose from traditional animals and natural produce or opt for robo-cows and gene-spliced crops. You can take a break from farming by mining, socializing with colonists, finding a love interest, exploring alien ruins, and so much more!

We currently hiring programmers, technical artists, and a writer. You can view (and share) all of our openings here.
