UE4 Engineer (Quest VR Project) needed to architect new project features and provide technical expertise to a small team of multidisciplinary creatives. Your first task will be to turn items you can virtually snack on (pizzas, coffees, popsicles) from awkward to delightful, both for the player who eats them and anyone watching.

We are looking for an engineer to join our team and turn designs into working game features. This is a short term contract position that will support the development of a game by owning a specific feature set. You will work in small teams to implement gameplay, build and maintain core game architecture and mechanics, create performant and well-documented production ready code, and be a strong contributor to good engineering practices and standards. As an Unreal expert, you’ll also be supporting content creators by integrating their work into the game and providing technical feedback and support.

***THIS IS A MULTIPLAYER PROJECT FOR THE OCULUS QUEST. YOU MUST HAVE A QUEST TO BE ABLE TO WORK ON THIS PROJECT AND YOUR OCULUS ACCOUNT MUST BE LINKED TO A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT.***

We are an indie studio who believes the next generation of games will be social and immersive. Our remote team has built a culture that is highly collaborative, demonstrates a willingness to give and receive feedback, shares techniques and ideas, and is goal driven. While our games are often wacky -- we are serious about the work that goes into making the best games for friends to play together.

Requirements:

  • Knowledge of C++ as used in UE4 and Blueprint scripting applied to mobile, dedicated game console, or VR development
  • Experience developing game play systems in an iterative fashion in response to daily playtest feedback
  • Ability to quickly prototype features from verbal or written design concepts
  • Experience with version control software such as Git or Perforce
  • Great English written and verbal communication; able to collaborate with artists and designers
  • Ability to work effectively in a remote agile team

It is a plus if you:

  • Have shipped a UE4 mobile or VR title with a significant engineering contribution
  • Are familiar with content creation best-practices and hardware limitations of resource constrained devices
  • Have an understanding of UE4 multiplayer development
  • Have experience working with the Oculus Quest
  • Are able to provide code samples or share Git repositories of your work
  • Enjoy playing casual games on any platform; from Uno to Vacation Simulator

Benefits:

  • Health and Wellness - We offer a robust package that is flexible to meet both individual and family needs including Health Insurance, Dental & Vision Insurance, Health Savings Accounts (HSA), Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA), Short and Long Term Disability Insurance, Life Insurance, and 401(k).
  • Make an Impact - We are dedicated to building a highly talented diverse community, one where team members feel a sense of belonging, and are valued for their contributions and the perspectives they bring. Not only do you get to work with the best talent but you get to bring your authentic self.
  • Fun Perks - We encourage research and experimentation and believe ideas come from everywhere. That means everyone has a play fund, we play games on Fridays together, and there are learning and development opportunities year round.
  • Work and Life - We not only offer a competitive time off policy that includes paid maternity/paternity leave, holidays, and a long winter break but we have a flexible schedule and have been a fully remote team since the day we opened our virtual doors.
