This is a fantastic opportunity for an accomplished Gameplay/Generalist with Unreal experience to join an experienced game development team. You will be a key member of the team, creating runtime features which are at the heart of the users experience. You will have both a deep technical and real passion for making great games.
As a Gameplay Programmer you will be working closely with the entire development team, creating the features that engage and delight our players. The C++ systems must be robust, easy to use and performant across all platforms. You will also be comfortable doing fast-paced prototyping with Blueprints in Unreal.
Your key area of responsibility will be working with the animators and animation system to support both player and NPC systems to be their very best. This will range from prototyping new gameplay features all the way through to helping to create believable individual character animation performances.
