Someone with experience of both C++/UE4 and C#/Unity would be good, as the choice of engine has still to be made.

  • You can give superb insight into AAA game architecture
  • Expertise in multiple areas, such as - NPC behaviour, AI, multiplayer, UI. UX, graphics, tools, systems, game engines
  • Collaborative approach to team work and development
  • Approachable and inclusive communication skills

This role is well compensated, in return for your hard work and versatile skillset you can expect:

This role will not be on the market for long. To join a studio of this stature on a 'green-field' project, with an IP so recognizable and respected this isn't just a 'new-job'. This is a career defining opportunity. Apply now or contact Alan Dixon on 01925 839737 or for more information
