The leadership at Cosmographic Software LLC has some big plans for 2023 and beyond, and we're looking to expand our team with new talent for our project:

Website: https://spaceengine.org/
Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/314650/SpaceEngine/

We're currently looking for junior C++ programmers to work on SpaceEngine - an HD universe simulator available on Steam. The hope is to find people who are looking for something to last for the longer term, who are genuinely interested in what we're making, and in working on a fully custom-built engine.

You would be working under the guidance of a senior programmer with over 30 years' experience in game development, and your initial focus would be working on the engine itself.

This is a fully remote position, so being able to self-motivate is essential!

  • Proficient in C++
  • Bachelor's degree in software development or computer science
  • Experience with 3D graphics development (OpenGL or Vulkan API a plus!)
  • Ability to work reliably in a remote setting with limited oversight
  • Ability to attend weekly video meetings (incl. reliable internet and video)
  • PC capable of running SpaceEngine
  • English language proficiency
  • Ability to work 9:00 - 4:00pm ET

  • C++
  • OpenGL or Vulkan API
  • JIRA
  • Slack
  • Discord
  • Google Suite

  • Work together with the senior coder on refactoring and optimizing the existing engine during the transition to Vulkan
  • Assist with programming new features
  • Improve existing features
  • Help identify and fix various bugs and issues within the program

Please submit a brief cover letter along with your resume! 
It would be great to hear why you’re interested in working with us, and to get to know you better beyond the bullet points.

All applications are appreciated, though we can only hire a few individuals at this time; but there will be additional hires throughout 2023 and 2024, so keep an eye open for more!

We look forward to hearing from you! 
Thank you for your interest!

About Cosmographic Software LLC

SpaceEngine is a realistic virtual Universe you can explore on your computer. You can travel from star to star, from galaxy to galaxy, landing on any planet, moon, or asteroid with the ability to explore its alien landscape. You can alter the speed of time and observe any celestial phenomena you please. All transitions are completely seamless, and this virtual universe has a size of billions of light-years across and contains trillions upon trillions of planetary systems. The procedural generation is based on real scientific knowledge, so SpaceEngine depicts the universe the way it is thought to be by modern science. Real celestial objects are also present if you want to visit them, including the planets and moons of our Solar system, thousands of nearby stars with newly discovered exoplanets, and thousands of galaxies that are currently known.
