Fire Hose Games is looking for an experienced Graphics Engineer to join the team on our latest game. This is a console + PC release featuring new and unannounced IP, and the ideal candidate will be familiar with (and excited about) factory/automation games.
As our Graphics Engineer you’ll be responsible for programming VFX, optimizing the visuals of the game, and managing the graphics performance budget for a Unity-based game. You’ll work closely with artists, designers, and other engineers to implement the artistic vision of the game while maintaining performance. You will evaluate potential middleware, implement new shaders, design and optimize systems to reduce batch calls, and help create tools and pipelines so that the content which our artists and designers create fits within your graphics performance budget.
Our team is currently remote, so great communication is a must. Successful candidates must be able to work fully in sync with a team based in the U.S. Eastern time zone. Preference may be given to candidates in the greater Boston area, or who are willing to relocate.
If you’re excited about helping us deliver our most ambitious project yet, then we’re eager to hear from you!
All your information will be kept confidential according to EEO guidelines.
Fire Hose Games is the Boston-based (but currently fully-remote) independent game development studio behind titles such as Go Home Dinosaurs, Catlateral Damage, and 20XX. We pay good salaries and our generous benefits package includes health care, dental, unlimited vacation/sick time, 401(k) with matching, excellent maternity/paternity leave, flexible work hours, and relocation reimbursement. Fire Hose hasn’t crunched in years and we don’t intend to start. Our company culture is inclusive, supportive, and fun. We strongly encourage applicants with diverse backgrounds and voices to apply, and consider relevant experience in all its forms. We hope to hear from you!
We're also hiring a Game Programmer and a Level Designer. You can view (and share) all of our current openings here.
