You'll fearlessly help lead the development of a full-featured prototype, collaborating closely with us to bring many messed-up ideas to reality.

  • Experience shipping at least one title (AAA experience not required, but y’know, appreciated), with a demonstrated ability to tackle complex programming challenges.
  • Familiarity with advanced idle and simulation game mechanics, including minigames and more complex game systems
  • Ability to work efficiently and autonomously, taking ownership of technical aspects and contributing to overall project direction
  • Strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail, particularly in optimizing game performance and implementing advanced gameplay features
  • A portfolio or examples of relevant work 
  • Able to communicate clearly and efficiently in English



  • Develop and implement gameplay mechanics using Unreal Engine 5
  • Collaborate with designers and artists to integrate assets and features
  • Optimize game performance and ensure a seamless player experience
  • Iterate on gameplay features based on feedback and testing
  • Meet project milestones and deadlines outlined in the contract


Not Required but a Plus:

  • Dark sense of humor
  • Fondness for cute aesthetics
  • Love for music and sound design

  • Location: Remote (US)
  • Job Type: Contract
  • Salary: Competitive, based on experience
