  • Collaborate with artists, programmers and designers, collating requirements and developing solutions to the technical challenges faced when building hugely complex and ambitious video games.
  • Work across a variety of domains in an established codebase, such as our asset exporters and pipeline, automated systems and standalone user-interfaces.
  • Work within a schedule to deliver features and fixes effectively to deadlines.


  • A degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or equivalent.
