Full Time

The role of a gameplay engineer switches from creating experimental prototypes to hardening systems for the reliability, scalability and performance required when millions of gamers are playing online together. Gameplay engineers breathe life into fragile design notions and add their own ideas and improvements.

We're looking for someone who enjoys the range of tasks required to bring a game to life, from client-side engineering (graphics, resource management and user-interface) to game-server engineering (game systems creation, online services and player state-management). We seek someone who cares about providing the best possible experience for players.

At our studio you'll have be involved in the entire life-cycle of feature development, from design & architecture to implementation & operationalization, and from game client to game services.

We're interested in folks with good software engineering skills and a player-first approach to development. We don't expect candidates to know everything, and so provide training and an educational stipend. What we don't know, we can learn together.

While we've already started on the game there is more we aim to accomplish together -- come join us!

We're hiring for a full-time position, with flexible days/hours. Our studio is located in Seattle, Washington, USA, but we are open to fully-remote staff members, US or international. We prefer a candidate near the Pacific Time zone to make meetings with the team more convenient, but if you're open to late-night or early-morning calls we can make it work.

Compensation and Benefits

  • Equitable salaries
  • Stock options in a venture-funded, early-stage company
  • Fully-remote work and flexible work week/telecommuting
  • Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision benefits (100% paid for employees / 50% paid for dependents)
  • Two months parental leave after one year of employment (one month the first year)
  • Long-term Disability insurance -- for life
  • Life insurance
  • Self-managed personal time off (guideline: 4 weeks annually) plus 12 holidays
  • Trade-show attendance
  • Continuing education & coaching stipend

Whether you have game industry experience or not, we encourage you to let us know you are interested in a role at One More Game.

We invite you to apply, and ask that you include your resume, cover letter and any other information you think represents your abilities. Any information you send will be used only for the purposes of evaluating your candidacy.

Please include the words "I want to make one more game" with your cover letter.
