Today, we are growing the team that is forging the first adventures in LEGO Fortnite, blending the engaging and welcoming Fortnite universe with the creativity and playfulness of LEGO. We're looking for a Senior Engine Programmer to help build the core technology for LEGO Fortnite.

• Design and implement new engine runtime features for the game, and the Unreal Engine itself
• Design and implement APIs and supporting tools as required by the demands of the project
• Partner with other LEGO Fortnite teams as a generalist programmer so we can flexibly deliver our fast paced and broad roadmap

• Experience in a broad range of programming areas on shipping games or real time visualization systems, with special attention given to low-level code and deep optimization
• Well-versed in software programming principles
