You’ll be an essential part of a small and creative team, working on almost every aspect of the game alongside an experienced, talented & friendly group of devs. We’re completely committed to building a company as diverse as the audiences we want to entertain, and will be really excited to hear from anyone who thinks they might bring a little something-something to our team.

You’re passionate about games, you love the craft just as much as the art, and you’re focused on the player above all things. You’re an open communicator, never too proud to ask for help, and you’re great at managing your time. We want to find someone who’ll grow with us and make us better.

Take ownership of a subset of gameplay systems within the Code team. You will be working on a range of gameplay programming, creating and integrating tools to aid the team in creating the game. You’ll likely be touching on gameplay and/or visuals most days.We use Bolt (or PlayMaker) in Unity, and Blueprints in Unreal so there’ll be lots of working close with our Design team.

A Day in the Life:

Log onto discord, have a meeting with the team, do various aspects of coding, have a break and have an afternoon meeting with the team and continue with your day.


  • Passionate about computer games and computer literate
  • Good communication skills
  • Proactive approach to work
  • Can attend all relevant meetings
  • Have C++ or C# coding experience (we work in Unity and Unreal
  • Can demonstrate their skills in a portfolio or software– We want to play or interact with your work in some form - but it doesn’t have to be a game. Experiment, art piece, tool, whatever!
  • Can comfortably communicate in spoken and written English


Job will be from home, however if circumstances change (pandemic) then attending the office will be required. (amount to be decided)
