What You'll Do

Epic Games is searching for an experienced Senior Engine Programmer (Mobile) to join our Foundation Core team.

• Optimize iteration times, and improve existing systems for performance, memory usage, and user experience
• Develop custom tools and pipelines for other programmers and content creators
• Work with large complex code base and understand and resolve performance issues related to data processing pipelines, load times, and platform specific performance issues for mobile and console platforms
• Establish test workflows to validate performance improvements and prevent regressions
• Support external customers by answering their technical requests and questions

What we're looking for
• Excellent low-level C++ knowledge
• Experience implementing efficient data streaming over a network
• Comfortable writing multithreaded code and reasoning about dependency graphs and content pipeline for large games
• Experience profiling and optimizing a large codebase
• Demonstrated ability to reason about large, interacting systems from the macro-level to the micro-level
• Someone who is passionate, solution-oriented, proactive and autonomous
