What You'll Do

We're looking for a Tools Programmer to work on the development of the Unreal Engine editor, who enjoys working on the frameworks and workflows that make Unreal Editor great for all users, from designers to engineers. From editor systems like asset editors, tab manager, gizmos, to managing syncing selection state across the editor, we have a wide problem space for you to jump into and make an impact for millions of users. The ideal candidate will be self-motivated and be able to design and implement editor systems that will be integral to the development of the Unreal Engine editor. You should be comfortable working cross discipline, from artists and content creators to engineers to identify and improve their day-to-day workflows. You should have an endless list of ideas for improving the efficiency of a game development pipeline.

In this role, you will
• Design and implement systems for the Unreal Engine editor
• Work with stakeholders in all disciplines (i.e. engineers, artists, and designers) to identify areas for improvements, gather feedback, and design solutions for customers' needs
• Analyze and fix problems in core editor systems
• Support external customers by answering their technical requests and questions
• Work collaboratively across many of Epics' internal teams to improve the user experience and workflows within Unreal Editor.
• Fix bugs and improve the Unreal Engine code base

What we're looking for
• Excellent C++ skills
• Experience developing in a large codebase
• Experience writing tools that improve the customer's user experience, iteration, and development time in game development or other fields
• A passion for improving the customer experience in software products, holistically and beyond code. Some examples of your passion may be - participating in UX design, developing automated tests, or adding profiling and analytics to monitor user behaviors
• Well versed in software engineering and design principles
• Demonstrated ability to communicate fluently in English (written and verbal)
• Someone who is user-focused, passionate, solutions-focused, and innovative. These traits equal success at Epic and influence everything we do
