Senior Generalist Programmer C++ UE4/5 - Remote (UK Based only)

Senior Generalist Programmer with C++ UE4/5 to work on this AAA quality aerial e-sports racing title.

Join a studio of creative professionals consisting of industry veterans from renowned studios such as PlayStation, Codemasters, Sumo Digital, Interior Night and Mediatonic.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to work on absolutely every part of the game and its development process. From feature work to helping improve tools and pipelines, optimisation work or integration of 3rd party systems, you will have the chance to position your skills in a way that works best for the team and the needs of the project.

Working in the engineering team, you will report directly to your assigned line manager and will collaborate with various disciplines across the project. Although the majority of the team are generalists, they like “T-shaped people” with a broad knowledge of many topics and deep knowledge of several domains.


As part of the development team, your role will involve collaborating closely with Production, Design, Animation, Art, QA and other team members to develop features, systems and tools for their projects.
