We're looking to add a mid/senior programmer to our highly experienced, professional, and pragmatic engineering team. All of our engineers are passionate about games and contribute both creatively and technically to our projects. This is a permanent full-time role and could be remote for the right person but preference will be given to candidates who are based locally in Melbourne.
Just because we’re calling out for a generalist, doesn’t mean we aren’t extremely interested in hearing about any particular interests you have that may contribute positively to our studio!
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
We offer flexible working conditions, a lovely light-filled office right near Flinders Street Station (don’t worry, we also have blinds if darkness is more your thing), and training and development opportunities. Team happiness and fulfillment is essential for our business to be successful, and we know that means a respectful work/life balance.
We are an equal opportunity employer and encourage diverse applications.
If you can tick most of the requirements for a role but not all, please do contact us. We are always interested to see candidates who could grow into an advertised role. Don't let the list of attributes scare you off if you feel a role is really you.
