Your Role

As the lead game developer, you'll be responsible for the architecture, implementation, and maintenance of all things software, with full ownership of the entire software development process – from early stage design to on-going maintenance and optimization. You're a "T-Shaped" developer, and wearing multiple hats is a challenge you thrive under. Whether the task is to implement core gameplay features or to build automated deployment pipelines, you feel confident and comfortable that you know how to get the job done – or even if you don't, you know that you can do the research to figure it out.


  • Work closely with the lead designer and artist to build the best possible game experience.
  • Implement gameplay logic, user interfaces, graphical effects, shaders, and lightning engines using the Unity framework.
  • Triage, identify, and resolve bugs on an on-going basis.
  • Build automated testing, deployment pipelines, metrics collection systems, and anything else that's needed to ship a world-class game.


  • Prior experience in the industry. You've shipped games before, and have experience in the full game release cycle.
  • Fluency in C# and a high degree of comfort working with Unity. You know the quirks and how to best work with the game engine.
  • Excellent version control skills with git. You know best practice process workflows and how to manage releases and rollbacks.
  • Good working proficiency with tools like Linux, bash / python scripts, and how to glue software systems together. You consider yourself a "generalist", with experience across a broad domain.
  • Strong instincts and a passion for making excellent games. You know what feels good and what doesn't, and strive to always put the player first.
  • Proven ability to self-direct and drive projects to completion. You can find answers to questions independently, and you're proactive in sourcing feedback and input when appropriate. This is a senior role, and we expect a high degree of independent work.

Perks and Benefits

  • Work from the comfort of your own home.
  • Flexible schedule.
  • The ability to have direct impact and input on the game.
  • No crunch time. Ever. That's a promise.
  • Competitive industry compensation rates.
