C# or C++ Tools Programmer AAA UK - REF 385

A tools programmer is someone whose sole purpose is to help others make better games. As a tools programmer, you almost never work directly on a game. Instead, you work on internal tools that help artists and designers get their art and ideas into the game as quickly and effortlessly as possible. 

This is a unique opportunity to work on pillar AAA titles including different genres of games on consoles and PC.

We’re looking for a Tools Programmer passionate about developing a world-class, AAA game engine and development tools. The ideal candidate will be self-motivated and be able to design and implement new engine features and pipeline tools with little to no direction. You will make a direct impact on the productivity of others by developing user-facing tools for our in house game engine.

What will you do?

  • Working closely with the Tools team members to create and implement new engine features
  • Working with the artists and designers on building content creation tools
  • Improving existing features in the engine editor
  • Investigating and fixing bugs to improve the overall editor experience
  • Write scripts and plug-ins

What skills do you need?

  • 2+ years of C# or C++ programming for a game studio
  • A Bachelor’s degree in computer science or 3+ years of relevant training
  • Self-motivated with a strong work ethic
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills
  • Ability to create, refactor and maintain code
  • 2+ years experience working in the games industry is desirable
  • A shipped AAA game title or multiple shipped small-scale games a bonus
