Who is Cold Symmetry?

The studio is composed of AAA creators that bring their passion and curiosity for making games. Our distributed development model allows us to work with the brightest and most talented people in the industry around the world. 

Why you’re ready to join Cold Symmetry

You have no time for bureaucracy and process-heavy pipelines.  As a creator, you thrive at studios where you are given the freedom to run and own your features without micromanagement. We trust you. We know you’re great. We know what you can do… so let’s create the next visually-stunning AAA game together, and most importantly: Let’s have FUN doing it, together. 

Your impact on the team:
  • Supervise development of and architect technology for a game prototype in progress, guiding development from pre production into production as the studio grows.
  • Recommend solutions and approve technical plans and roadmaps.
  • Write and develop robust, maintainable high and low level code to extend engine Unreal Engine functionality.
  • Implement features for next-gen platforms, including prototypes and new technologies.
  • Identify and solve technical problems as they arise, including cross-platform issues, debugging, profiling and optimizing for reduced memory usage and increased real-time performance.
  • Maintain and add to existing codebase, including low/mid-level systems to support pipelines and higher-level programmers.
  • Research new tools, techniques and processes and how they can benefit the studio.
  • Collaborate productively, communicating ideas and issues clearly across disciplines.
  • Exceptional analysis and problem-solving skills.
  • Architect and participate in implementing all the different game modules and systems.
  • Working with the build engineer and technical artists, architect and participate in the implementation and maintenance of potential non game specific systems used by content creators (extensions to engines, tools, build systems, pipeline improvements).
  • Work closely with department leads to identify and set technical restrictions and ensure the team adheres to them.



Skills and Abilities We’re Looking For::

  • At least 5 years in the video game industry as a Senior Engineer or Technical Director, having shipped multiple games across multiple platforms, and are expert in C++ programming, debugging and optimization.
  • At least one of the titles worked on should have been developed using Unreal Engine.
  • Preferably have worked with teams of different sizes and experienced game studios at different stages of growth.
  • Production-minded and practice practical problem solving to deliver under time and resource constraints.
  • Passion for and understanding of Character Action titles.



Do I need to meet All Criteria to Apply?
