Reporting to Jonny Hopper (Co-Founder, Technical Director), you’ll be working closely with him and Adam Sibbick (Art Director) to make our game beautiful. We need shaders! We need performance! We need the box of clever tricks hidden inside your wizard coat. And we need it all in our home-grown close-to-the-metal engine.

  • Think creatively about how to push the game’s visual bar and blow our minds.

  • Enthusiastically jump into our existing codebase and take ownership over key graphics and pipeline features.

  • Pivotal to the success of the game, having specced and delivered key visual and pipeline technology

  • A central, supportive member of our small team

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE WOULD:

  • Have a deep love of realtime graphics

  • Know lots about performance tuning and optimisation

  • Come armed with a strong technical background, where your intuition to the ‘what’ is backed up by the ‘why’.

  • Show willingness to do all the things, in order to Get Them Done.

  • Be at C++ Level: Brilliant, but not so Brilliant you use template metaprogramming, traits and std::range all the time.

ADVANTAGEOUS QUALITIES:

Have a deep love of realtime graphics

  • An artistic eye married with an ability to express that in code

  • Shipped a game as part of a team

  • Experience delivering a cross-platform project

  • Not super-fussed about Object Oriented design
