The role involves working across numerous disciplines, including the 3C’s (Character, Controls, Camera), animation, AI, and physics.

We believe in iterative development, and you will need to be comfortable working in a fluid environment with competing demands. We also believe the best games are made by diverse teams, and we welcome and encourage applicants of all backgrounds.

  • Work closely with dedicated animation, physics, AI, and network programmers.
  • Help evaluate and integrate appropriate 3rd party solutions where appropriate.
