Senior
Giant Squid is looking for a highly-skilled Senior Programmer to make core gameplay systems, engine features, and developer tools for our new exciting game project. We are looking for an experienced developer who really understands video games and is great at making them– a heavy hitter who can take on any kind of task and do what it takes to get it done right. Beyond being a virtuoso coder and great communicator, our ideal candidate is aligned with our goal of creating video game experiences that are elegant and efficient, yet evocative, beautiful and meaningful.

As a Senior Programmer, we will ask you to design, implement, maintain, and debug many features for our current UE5 game project. These will include gameplay systems, editor tools, and more. You will often work directly with technical artists and animators as well as the rest of our coder team to implement game features that require cross disciplinary collaboration.

Giant Squid is a small but seasoned team of award-winning game developers. The innovative and beautiful game experiences that we make spring from a team culture that is friendly, open, and inclusive. We are looking for a team player who fits right into close-knit small team development and shares our excitement for learning, wearing multiple hats, and stepping outside of regular workflows to make things happen.

This is a remote position, and we are a fully remote team. We operate mainly in the PST time zone and prefer that your location is in a time zone relatively close to ours.

Responsibilities

- Design, implement, maintain, and debug large core game systems
- Extend engine functionality in an efficient and sustainable way
- Design and implement developer tools for art, level design and programming, incorporating team workflows
- Optimize code and systems to bring game performance up to a shippable level of quality

Requirements

- Wide breadth of game programming knowledge and experience (critical gameplay systems, world-building tools, shader programming, engine systems, etc...)
- Deep understanding of mathematics for game systems (calculus, linear algebra, trigonometry, etc.)
- Mastery of programming in C++ and working knowledge of many programming languages
- A willingness to collaborate closely with artists
- Knowledge of game design principles
- At least one title shipped in a senior programmer role or equivalent experience

Bonus

- Experience with Unreal Engine

About Giant Squid

Giant Squid is a small but seasoned team of award-winning game developers. The innovative and beautiful game experiences that we make spring from a team culture that is friendly, open, and inclusive.

We believe that video games are more than a pastime - they are an artistic medium that can deliver beautiful, meaningful, and timeless experiences to a wide range of people. Our goal is to create games that fulfill that potential. We strive to create innovative and deeply moving experiences that will inspire players, challenge convention, and push the boundaries of interactive entertainment to new exciting areas.

The only way to do that is with a team culture based on a foundation of unconditional respect for our people. We have built a friendly, open, and inclusive environment where we learn from each other, support each other, and grow together. Game development should be a joyful experience, the best ideas can come from anyone, and the best games are made by happy people who care deeply about what they make. Our culture reflects those values, and continues to be the key ingredient to our success.

Our latest game is The Pathless, the mythic adventure of an archer and an eagle exploring a vast forest. Our first game was ABZÛ, an epic descent into the depths of the sea. Our games celebrate fluid movement, avoid hyper violence, and are approachable for kids and adults alike without compromising on depth, stakes, or meaning. They have something important to say, messages that resonate with our players in a way that only a video game can deliver. We don’t just want to make games that we want to play- we want to make games that nourish, that we can be proud of when we share them, and that leave the world a better place.
