• Rendering performance and device compatibility in Metal, including the shader pipeline
• Work with Apple to help drive the development of iOS as a game development platform
• Collaborate with a variety of other Epic teams such as Fortnite mobile engineering to help them solve complex technical challenges in ways that move the stability and quality of our internal products forward
• Help us embrace, support, extend, and enhance our engine for future mobile hardware

What we're looking for

• Solid experience with a broad range of engineering areas in shipping games or real-time visualization systems, with special attention given to low-level code and deep optimization
• Proficiency with development tools and profiling on modern systems, including frame capture and profiling with engine-level and platform-specific tooling
