Essential experience to be considered for this role:

  • Shipped at least one UE4 based game.
  • Minimum 3 years’ experience working with Unreal Engine.
  • A passion for making and playing games with an eye for detail and feel for good gameplay.

  • Experience developing for PS4 & Xbox One.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or other relevant discipline or equivalent experience.
