  • Build tools to empower all Disciplines (including Design, Art, Audio, and Engineering) to quickly build exciting and effective user interfaces within those paradigms
  • Build UI/UX interfaces using our toolkit to deliver game experiences to players

 

Essential Traits:

  • 3+ years experience as a professional software engineer

We can offer:

  • A chance to work on a new game project with an extremely motivated team
  • Opportunities to learn and grow personally and professionally
  • A stable and secure work environment

We’re looking for applicants who are self-driven, put players first, and that have a history of making cool stuff. In return, we can offer an environment that values and supports individual creativity and passion and believes in fostering new talent. We recognize the value of diversity in every sense and actively encourage candidates from diverse backgrounds to apply.
