  • Write and maintain technical documentation
  • Research new tools, techniques and processes and how they can benefit the studio
  • Collaborate productively within a large multi-disciplined project team environment, communicating ideas and issues clearly, and supporting all coders on your team as required
  • Be responsive to deadlines and work well under pressure, meeting multiple production objectives and deadlines

Skills:

  • Excellent debugging and problem-solving skills under pressure
  • Capable of quickly familiarising yourself to work with a large existing codebase, learning new systems and concepts and implementing them quickly and efficiently
  • Ability to structure and build a large system with others, working on a system from conception to completion, prototyping as well as producing final code
  • Good spoken and written communication skills, able to collaborate productively, communicating ideas and issues clearly to non-technical staff
  • Great team-work with game developers from all disciplines across the project, and the ability to accept and follow direction, with excellent initiative, self-motivation and organisational skills
  • General knowledge of current games, consoles, multiplayer development, and/or development tools such as Visual Studio and Perforce or other version control systems would be an advantage
