Our client are looking for technical Engineers to help them deliver the best possible experience to PC players – we want to ensure that we are delivering a top-quality version of our game on PC from both a technical and user experience perspective.

The ideal candidate will be adaptable and won't be fazed by a large and complex pre-existing engine, or by diving deep into and learning about areas in which they may not have had prior experience. They will collaborate with other members of the Engine and game teams, along with Game Design, to provide creative solutions to problems that impact the PC version of our game.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Use quality-orientated software development practices to deliver PC-specific features to support the game team and satisfy our PC players.
  • Ensure stability, robustness and performance of the engine across multiple PC specifications.

Required Skills and Experience:

  • A strong knowledge of and practical experience with C++ for several years is required, as this will be the focus of development work in this role.

Desired Experience:

  • Experience of developing for multiple platforms would be helpful, especially PC and Xbox One.
  • Any experience with writing automated tests would be favourable, and experience of using major third-party game engines or writing code for constrained environments would be well received.
