We’re Qloud Games, an Australian-based indie studio with remote team members hailing from around the world. We’re developing Loftia, and we’re looking for a Gameplay & Systems Engineer (Unreal Engine) to join our growing studio.

Loftia is a cozy take on the MMO genre, where players farm, build, and contribute to the growth of a sustainable, solarpunk world. The game mixes the chill, relaxing atmosphere of existing titles such as Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing, with the social aspects of a massively multiplayer game. Our vision is to provide a space where players can discover a sense of belonging, work together with others in the community to build and grow a sustainable world, and inspire hope for the future.

  • A strong understanding of how to design and implement networked game features
  • Flourishes in a startup environment, where you can make a big personal impact. Has a keen aptitude for striking the right balance between maintaining coding standards and best practices, and completing tasks in an efficient, practical manner

  • Start date: As soon as possible
