How We Hire

  • Potential and fit are just as (if not more) important than skills alone. Of course your talent & experience are essential for us to ship an amazing game, but our culture is more than just a group of wildly talented people. We want to meet you for who you are, understand what you’re working towards, and see if we can achieve great things together.

  • The world would be a dull place if everyone and everything were exactly the same. Different backgrounds, histories, cultures and perspectives can only help us tell richer and more relevant stories. We believe in the power of a diverse team - all walks of life are welcome here.

  • This is as much a fit for you as it is for us. It’s important that you feel like you belong here.

Open Positions



    We’re looking for an engineer who’s an expert in console programming. Someone who knows from experience what the certification requirements are for various consoles and how to bring an Unreal project in line with them. Someone who can build the bridge between the goal we want to reach and the product that has to ship, with architecture that brings harmony between the game and the machine it runs on.

    You love all the principles and techniques that studios use to boost game performance. You’re a mediator, mixing these cutting-edge techniques and well-known strategies to make an ideal solution of console optimization. Your understanding and communication of each platform’s needs will be instrumental in taking our games across the finish line.


    • Implementing a variety of console-specific SDKs.
    • Achieving certification on current generation consoles.
    • Extensively modifying off-the-shelf engines, such as UE4.
    • Assisting other disciplines in optimizing their work for consoles.
    • Working within multi-threaded coding environments.

    Required Experience:

    • Has written console code on shipped games.

    Required Skills:

    • Can modify, extend, and optimize sophisticated code bases.
    • Can architect, implement, and maintain a variety of complex core engine systems.
    • Can remain up to date with modern industry innovations and apply them internally.
    • Can work with multiple modern graphics APIs and shading languages.
    • Has a comprehensive understanding of various CPU and GPU architectures.
    • Can deploy profiling tools and interpret their results for other disciplines.
    • Can write low level C++ code with an eye for optimization and performance.
    • Is a self-motivated and proactive problem-solver. 
    • Loves working with others.

    Salary Range:

    We value mentorship as part of building our team. Therefore, in order to create more opportunities we choose to stay open to hiring candidates at different levels of experience. If you’re the right fit for our culture, we are excited to help you grow. Our salary ranges reflect experience level, but we will be transparent about where you fit and we will always hire equitably when hiring within the same experience level. We have two ranges for this role, experienced and highly experienced:

    Experienced Programmer: $120,000-$165,000 per year

    Highly Experienced Programmer: $165,000-$190,000 per year

    Additionally, if you are interested in this role but feel as though you don’t have the right experience for it, we’d like to further encourage your application. When compared to individuals of similar backgrounds and skill levels, members of historically marginalized groups are statistically far less likely to apply for a position unless they feel like they meet all of its listed qualifications. As part of our mission to cultivate a diverse workplace, we encourage you to apply for the position that excites you, even if your resumé doesn’t perfectly match what we’re looking for.

    • Competitive Health Benefits. The company pays a high portion of employee and dependent premiums. At this time our contribution covers all of our employees and the majority of the cost for their families.
