• You have a proven ability to communicate your ideas and collaborate with others to create clear, concise design specs and then see them through to completion
• You have professional experience with visual scripting languages (preferably Blueprints) and are accustomed to writing clean, readable visual scripts that are production-ready, as well as being able to review scripts from other developers to highlight issues and provide suggestions for improvement
• A broad skill set is a strength! As a small team, we highly value those who can contribute to on multiple fronts
• Experience and dedication to developing high quality player experiences
• You're user-focused, passionate, scrappy, solutions-focused, and innovative. These traits equal success at Epic and influence everything we do
