Game Engine Developer (22213)
Bored of the hamster wheel of std::development or filling out research grants? Looking to stretch your mental muscles and work on cutting edge cross-platform tech? Like to see your name in the credits of top PC and console games?
A top games company with an international reputation is looking beyond the walls of the games industry to attract talented C++ software developers to join them. Their enviable game engine tech includes fully optimised cross-platform infrastructure covering everything from hardware control, ultra-fast C++ maths libraries, dynamic physics-based animation to asset streaming, massively multiplayer online play and artificial intelligence.
You don’t need games-specific experience or to know anything about the above topics – but you’d better find them exciting things to work on if you’d like to work here! You’ll need to be an experienced C++ developer who can think both architecturally and to a fine grain of optimisation, and you’ll be excited to learn more about blocking vs non-blocking concurrency, CPU instruction pipelining, cache misses and branch mispredictions.
You may come from a desktop, embedded or online background, from straight up and down business software or academic research – if you can cut a dash as a senior software professional, discuss computer science with depth and flair (thanks to your top degree and experience), and craft elegant C++ with grace under pressure, do get in touch.
