The Role

The Game Programming Team works alongside designers, technical designers, final artists, animators, VFX artists, and SFX artists to create the gameplay code required to construct the game.

• Mentor Junior and mid-level Game Programmers.
• Evaluate code reviews.
• Write unit tests, functional tests, data validation tests, and game-wide automated tests that validate the ongoing stability of your work and others.
• Make the game FUN!

The ideal candidates will have:
• Demonstrably strong talent for programming gameplay and mechanics, with a clear understanding of what makes games 'feel' good.
• Fluent in object-oriented C++ with strong debugging and documentation skills.

• A genuine interest in playing games.
• A good degree or post-graduate qualification, or relevant experience, in Computer Science or a related subject.
• Ability to provide time estimates for complex programming tasks.
