Gameplay Programmer

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to not just develop gameplay systems, but to help build a system that will create an immersive and compelling user experience?  As a Gameplay Programmer, you can solve a problem with a complete end-to-end solution in a fast-paced, agile environment. We’re looking for a developer with the skills needed to design and implement gameplay systems.

This role is more than just coding. We need a Gameplay Programmer who will use their passion to learn new tools and techniques, and implement new capabilities and features. Using Unreal Engine 4 and Unity with a focus on C++ you’ll work with the development team to program high-quality serious and consumer games for mobile devices, desktop PC, and AR/VR. You will also work with the Project Lead to design and architect major gameplay systems, work with designers to create modular gameplay features and interfaces while following best practices and coding standards to create well-documented, extensible code that can be easily maintained.

As a Gameplay Programmer you will be expected to pro-actively communicate with artists and designers as well as maintain project and process specific documentation for the team. This role will require you to meet development schedules and support the integration and testing of the developed applications and participate in design reviews for software under development. You’ll analyze the needs and the environment to help make sure the solution the team develops considers the current architecture and operating environment, as well as future functionality and enhancements. Join us as we build systems to change the simulation and game industry for the better.
