We are looking for a Programmer to integrate into our development team to help us build fantastic experiences for players. In the short term, this means helping us bring Circuit Superstars to its full release on PC and consoles. In the long term, this means helping with post-launch support for Circuit Superstars as well as working on future games.

Our team is small, and as a result, our roles are broad. As a programmer, you will:​

  • Collaborate with the team to design, prototype, implement, and polish gameplay systems and their associated UI.
  • Design and implement systems which run the game and assist our workflows.
  • Iterate on design and implementation based on player feedback and testing.

We're looking for someone who:​

  • Has a wide breadth of experience making high-performance games in Unity.
  • Has experience leading the implementation of physics-driven gameplay systems.
  • Has experience with UI programming.
  • Is curious, driven, collaborative, and kind.
  • Has excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Loves games and game development.

We'll be extra impressed if you either:​

  • Have experience developing racing games.
  • Have experience with developing games for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Nintendo Switch.
  • Have experience with graphics optimization.

Our team goals are aligned with the games we make: we believe work should bring us satisfaction and opportunities for growth and self-expression. We believe in self-managing teams empowered with trust and autonomy. As a team member at Original Fire Games, you will be part of strategizing, planning and executing the development of the game. More importantly, you will be part of a team in which people care about and support each other.

How to Apply:

Applicants must be eligible to work in Canada, or currently in Canada on a work permit/visa. This is a remote position: we are currently working remotely and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
