Our client is a well-known and long standing UK Games Studio, with a back catalogue of great titles. They are looking for technical Engineers to help deliver the best possible experience to PC players – they want to ensure that they are delivering a top-quality version of their latest game on PC from both a technical and user experience perspective.

The Engine team’s responsibility is to provide deep technical knowledge and technical design advice across all game and platform systems within the studio and are often involved at the initial design stages of game features and frequently embed in other teams to provide direct assistance in problem areas.

The ideal candidate will be adaptable and won’t be fazed by a large and complex pre-existing engine, or by diving deep into and learning about areas in which they may not have had prior experience. They will collaborate with other members of the Engine and game teams, along with Game Design, to provide creative solutions to problems that impact the PC version of our game.


Key Accountabilities:

  • Use quality-orientated software development practices to deliver PC-specific features to support the game team and satisfy our PC players.
  • Ensure stability, robustness and performance of the engine across multiple PC specifications.


Required Skills:

  • A strong knowledge of and practical experience with C++ for several years is required, as this will be the focus of development work in this role.


Desirable Experience:

  • Experience of developing for multiple platforms would be helpful, especially PC and Xbox One.
  • Any experience with writing automated tests would be favourable, and experience of using major third-party game engines or writing code for constrained environments would be well received.
