Lead Game AI Tools Developer

Copenhagen /
Zartis TL /
Backend Engineer
We are looking for a Lead Game AI Tools Developer  on behalf of modl.ai.

Do you want to play a part in creating the future of AI in game development? modl.ai is a Copenhagen company that delivers AI tools for video game studios and they’re looking for a team member to head up their engine tools and integration work.

You will join top class game developers and machine learning experts. They are a small, but efficient and effective team with the skills and products to play in the big leagues. They have delivered cutting edge projects for world class studios. Now, they are edging towards scale.

Their early stage makes this a very exciting opportunity to have a large impact on both modl.ai and AI tech in game development. They encourage ambitious mindsets, and offer great career opportunities along with an attractive salary package and flexible working hours.

Your Role:

You will be leading modl.ai efforts in integrating, standardizing and productizing their machine learning and AI algorithms for automated testing and player modeling into Unity and Unreal Engine tools and packages as well as custom game engines.
You'll be working in close collaboration with their team of specialists in ML/AI for games and you will drive the integration of these methods directly into the predominant public game engines as well as the proprietary/private ones that modl.ai customers use.

Key responsibilities:

Lead and manage their technical team of specialists in AI/ML and tools development.
Tasks include recruitment, 1:1 meetings, team member development and training, motivating and managing performance.
Serve as the primary interface between the implementation work of the R&D and product.
Review and evaluate AI/ML solutions developed by the R&D team.
Plan and lead development sprints on both internal and external projects.
Evaluate technological opportunities and solutions.
Take responsibility for professional services.
Manage their customer relationships and take responsibility for implementations.
Support sales with pre-sales activities, leading work on technical quotes and producing estimates.

About You:

You have an impressive background and significant experience developing games or tools for game development.
You have been part of shipping multiple titles or tool packages, and have strong feelings about game engine architecture, development practices, and team dynamics.
You're familiar with typical stumbling points in game development and with a keen eye for automating-all-the-things.
You have been part of building development teams in the industry before.

As a team leader and planner of development workflows, you value the long term gains of implementing up against a well-defined roadmap and even though you are used to working in sprints you understand that building technology is a marathon. Crunching isn’t an acceptable tool in production and doesn’t provide real progress long-term. The most important asset you have is your team.

When unexpected technical challenges arise, you feel comfortable making well considered assessments and decisions and have no problem reporting back to the organization what is realistic to accomplish by when.

You may or may not have experience with the latest AI and ML techniques, but you are interested in learning from a super competent and motivated team of world-class engineers in the field who are excited to learn from your game development and production experience in turn.

You like to code and are looking forward to a role where you will be directly building and contributing to their product, splitting your time between management/planning and making the vision of our tools come to life by implementing them in the most popular game engines.
