Playmake is hiring a Gameplay Engineer!

Hi there! I’m Andrew, CEO of Playmake.
 
Are you our next Gameplay Engineer? I hope you are -- our first game has been live for only a few months, and we have 250K+ players waiting for updates!

About Playmake

We’re the first studio making games for the 140M players on Roblox.
 
We’re a small but growing team, with experience creating fun for millions of players at companies like Apple, Unity, and Hasbro.
 
We were fully-remote before the pandemic, and remain fully-remote. You can work from anywhere that has a good Internet connection.

We feel that if you’re going to give players cosmetic items, you’d better make them distinctive.

What you’ll do as a Gameplay Engineer

You'll develop across the entire scope of our games: movement and physics, progression and leveling, and cosmetic item systems.

How to know if you’re a good fit

We’re looking for gameplay engineers who can:

  • Be a generalist. See “across the entire scope of our games” above!
  • Own high-level features (at the scope of “touchscreen auto-aim” or “daily rewards”) end-to-end. You’ll have support from 3D modellers and 2D artists, but the core feature design is yours.
  • Write code that the player touches directly. You should know what fun feels like on a very low level of player UI, whether it’s the physics of tossing a coconut or the feel of pressing an “upgrade” button.
  • Work in games that are real-time, and involve some degree of physics/avatar movement.

We don’t care about specific languages. If you’ve made games in any mainstream programming language (including but not limited to Python, C++, C#, Objective-C, Android Java, Javascript), we want to talk to you.

Our level designer may have been playing a LOT of Mario 64.

How to apply

Play our first game so you get an idea of what we work on!

Then contact me, andrew@playmake.games, with links to playable games you’ve made, and we’ll go from there.
That’s me, our CEO, about to get murdered. I’m not very good at playing the Sheriff!
