We’re looking for a creative games programmer with a passion for understanding what’s needed and getting things working quickly. Someone who can get up to speed on new requirements and technologies and get workable solutions in place fast. You’ll be working on a wide range of diverse and challenging problems in a mission driven team.


About us

We've created a unique environment for long-term ambitious research to flourish in. Our world-class interdisciplinary team combines the best techniques from deep learning, reinforcement learning and systems neuroscience to build powerful general-purpose learning algorithms.

We’ve made a number of high profile breakthroughs towards general AI, we now have all the ingredients in place to make further significant progress over the coming years. Our business has a start-up entrepreneurial culture but operates within a large, high profile global company - so you will need to be flexible and ready for anything.


The Team

As part of the Research Group, the Worlds Team provides Researchers with the best training and testing environments possible, across a variety of domains. These range from bespoke mini-games aimed at answering specific research questions, to expansive first-person games using modern 3D engines. The output from the Worlds Team is crucial in helping steer research forward.

Projects we’ve worked on include AlphaGoDM Lab, and DQN on Atarias well as contributions to countless publications. The team consists of developers with backgrounds in engineering, games and VFX.


The Role

You’ll work closely with Research and other members of the Worlds team to rapidly prototype new ideas. You’ll investigate new areas and deliver early solutions. You’ll work with others to iterate on these solutions, sometimes supporting them through the delivery and at other times handing them off to be finished by others. You’ll add new game features to existing game environments, and make brand new environments available.

We take time to design and implement our software carefully, and we welcome new ideas and apply thoughtfulness to everything we do. We take code reviews, unit and integration testing seriously to ensure high code quality and robustness.

You’ll join a close knit team of talented individuals who openly share ideas with one another.
