Full Time


We’ve made Nidhogg 1+2, Flywrench, and now we are starting a brand-spanking-new project and we want to work with YOU! We work hard but we are anti-crunch. Join us, and let’s create some ✨magic✨ together! 🙂

We are looking for an experienced programmer to join our small team making a top-secret open world 3D game in Unity. We are an experienced team and looking for a highly motivated, creative builder. We work hard but do not believe in crunch.

You will find there is work to do in a variety of departments and will have to prioritize and schedule with the other departments as well as external partners. You love building new experiences and solving code problems across departments. Your superpower is your ability to work collaboratively and communicate efficiently. You are excellent at giving time estimates for your work, and happy to communicate about shifting priorities as they arise.

We are looking for someone who has shipped a game as a programmer on a console title (or three!). This position is a full time remote work position, but ideally you will be able to work somewhere between US East and West coast business hours.


  • Must have some experience with some kind of multithreading / Unity Jobs System / Burst Compiler


  • Experience with Houdini and the HAPI
  • Experience with procedural mesh generation/manipulation
  • Experience with compute shaders/GPGPU
  • Experience with custom physics sims
  • Shipped a game with Unity on consoles


Please send your resume and portfolio to We can't wait to meet you!


Messhof is a video game development studio founded in 2013 by Mark Essen and Kristy Norindr and located in Venice, California.


Nidhogg is the epic award-winning fencing tug-of-war, full of graceful acrobatics and clumsy stabs. IRL yelling and excitement may occur, in this ultimate two-player showdown of fast-paced fencing and melee attacks. Beware, advantages in Nidhogg are often fleeting, as new opponents continually spawn in your way.

The rules are simple in Nidhogg 2. Reach the other side and kill anyone that stands in your way. Deftly parry and rend their throats, riddle their bowels with arrows, or squish their brains between your toes. The wurm cares not for chivalry.

Flywrench is a frenetic action game from the makers of Nidhogg about piloting an aerobatic ship through the depths of space.
