2x Contract Senior Gameplay Programmers – Games – Great Day Rates Available

Location: Twycross, Midlands, UK Salary: Negotiable

Job ID: # Posted: 6 years ago



Our client is a well-known and long standing UK Games Studio, with a back catalogue of great titles. As a Senior Gameplay Programmer on a game team, you’ll work with other Programmers, Designers, Artists, Testers and Production staff to create game features. In this multi-disciplinary environment, everyone has a part to play in providing inspiration and creativity and no-one truly performs just a single role.


In this role, you’ll tackle tough problems with little guidance and will help to set the direction of whatever group you’re working with. They don’t really do that whole ‘estimates, schedules and Project Managers’ thing, and that means you’ll need to be comfortable with helping them figure out what the best thing is they should all be doing right now. They promise that if you’re looking to grow, you’ll have access to the range of challenges you need to truly broaden your experience. But most of all, you’ll be part of a team of friendly, highly talented developers who like nothing better than sharing their own challenges and their expertise with you.


Key Accountabilities:

  • Originate, implement and iterate on software features for inclusion in games or to support the development of our products, in conjunction with other Engineers, Designers, Artists and Testers.
  • Identify and surface risks in the areas that are being worked on.
  • Build creative solutions to technical problems encountered in the development of our games.
  • Continuously work to minimise technical debt and maintenance hazards.
  • Devote time to personal improvement in order to further your own game development and programming knowledge.
  • Mentor less experienced members of the team as necessary.


Required Skills:

  • Bring at least one area of deep technical expertise to the team. You’ll know an awful lot about game (or plain old software) development in general, but this expertise is your thing. Graphics, audio programming, artificial intelligence, network sync, web services, engine development, build systems and suchlike. That’s not an exhaustive list, by the way, just some examples. Tell us about yours.
  • Be enthusiastic about modern development techniques and be demonstrably keen to apply them to games. Test automation is a key element of our approach so a willingness to apply that is essential.
  • Demonstrable experience in software design, programming and debugging skills in, possibly, a range of languages.
