Senior Programmer

Senior Programmer
We’re about to start the development of a new AAA-Action game based on a Cult Classic IP. Interested?

Slipgate Ironworks are soon starting development of a new AAA title. Maybe you’ve already played some of the games we've been working on, such as the critically acclaimed Ghostrunner, or Ion Fury, GRAVEN and WRATH: Aeon of Ruin, released under our publishing label 3D Realms.


We love new ideas, and we like to do things a little differently.
We’re deeply passionate about old-school action games, and our passion for the genre runs deep in our DNA. At our office in Aalborg, Denmark we are currently 18 people, and we have approx. 120 people working for us around the world.

It's going well at Slipgate, and we need more people to take on the increased workload when we’re kicking off our new AAA production.

Therefore we’re looking for a Senior Programmer.
We have many different tasks to dive into, so there will definitely be something exciting no matter what you are interested in, and as long as you reach your deadlines, we are flexible about what you work with.

We are about to embark on a journey, developing a next generation action game, built on new technology (Unreal Engine 5), based on a very well known IP.

A dream project for most game developers, and you have the opportunity to participate.


The job includes:

  • Responsibility for Code Reviews, including feedback and coaching of the programmers on the project when necessary
  • Development of tools and features in Unreal Engine 5
  • Advanced programming, related to new gameplay features and AI
  • Optimization of builds on different platforms


If you have ambitions to become a lead programmer, there are also good opportunities to fulfill those ambitions.

You will work from our studio in Aalborg, Denmark, where there are opportunities for both flex days and working from home. You will refer directly to Grzergorz, who is our Chief Technical Officer. In general, Slipgate is characterized by a flat organization and a high team spirit, where we get excited about great ideas no matter who brings them up.

Who are you?

You're probably a computer scientist or software engineer. If not, then you have many years of programming experience. Regardless of your background, you have deep knowledge of advanced mathematics and algorithms, just as you have extensive knowledge of Unreal Engine. You have 5-10 years of experience in the gaming industry or have published several titles, preferably at least one AAA title. Alternatively you have worked with visualization and engine development in another industry. It is necessary that you have a minimum of 5-6 years of experience with Unreal, and experience with Generation 8 Consoles (PS4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch). Finally, you are a shark for C ++ programming which you’ve been dealing with for 6-8 years. You communicate fairly effortlessly in English, are good at problem solving and are able to prioritize your tasks. You will not have direct personnel responsibilities, but since you need to give feedback to programmers, you need to teach and make demands. You don’t necessarily have to be a social type, but a certain empathy and patience with others is a clear advantage.


We want you to start ASAP!

We would like to bring you on board, so please send your application as soon as possible!

We look forward to you joining our team!
