We’re looking for someone who:

    • Has 3+ years experience in developing and maintaining game engines at an AAA game studio
    • Has a background in deploying and optimizing software on multiple platforms (on-prem/cloud)
    • Is an expert in best practices for game engine architecture for scalability and flexibility
    • Has strong graphics experience

Nice to have:

    • Prior experience in shipping Unreal Engine games
    • Prior work in either autonomous vehicles or simulation products
