Our client aren't your typical developer. Over 30 years in the game-making business, every moment has been dedicated to kicking out one beloved title after another. They've tried all manner of new things when creating games in that time, but if there's one thing they've truly come to believe, it's the importance of having fun every single day and infusing it into everything they create.

In this role, you'll tackle tough problems with little guidance and will help to set the direction of whatever group you're working with. They promise that if you're looking to grow, you'll have access to the range of challenges you need to truly broaden your experience. But most of all, you'll be part of a team of friendly, highly talented developers who like nothing better than sharing their own challenges and expertise with you.

Key Accountabilities:

  • Originate, implement and iterate on software features for inclusion in their games or to support the development of their products, in conjunction with other Engineers, Designers, Artists and Testers.
  • Identify and surface risks in the areas that are being worked on.
  • Build creative solutions to technical problems encountered in the development of their games.
  • Continuously work to minimise technical debt and maintenance hazards.
  • Devote time to personal improvement in order to further your own game development and programming knowledge.

Required Skills and Experience:

  • Bring at least one area of deep technical expertise to the team. You'll know an awful lot about game (or plain old software) development in general, but this expertise is Your Thing. Graphics, audio programming, artificial intelligence, network sync, web services, engine development, build systems and suchlike. 
  • Be enthusiastic about modern development techniques and be demonstrably keen to apply them to games. Test automation is a key element of their approach so a willingness to apply that is essential.
  • Demonstrable experience in software design, programming and debugging skills in, possibly, a range of languages.
