Senior Engine Programmer New


Aardvark Swift


Oxford, United Kingdom

United Kingdom

Programming and Development




Mid-Senior Level

Permanent | Full Time


Coding wizard required to optimise and improve all areas of an in-house engine for a legendary UK studio.

Could you be their Senior Engine Programmer, motivated by making things work, and making them work better than they did before? You'll be a top troubleshooter, and finding new features you can implement to improve the studio workflow.

You'll be working as part of the core technology team, supporting multiple AAA titles being developed for the PS4, Xbox One, PC DirectX 12 and next generation platforms.

When you wake up in a morning, you'll be looking forward to...

  • Build features across current and next-gen platforms, including prototypes and new technologies
  • Identifying and solving technical problems as they arise, from cross-platform issues and debugging, to memory and performance optimisation.
  • Maintaining and adding to existing codebase, including low/mid-level systems to support pipelines and higher-level programmers
  • Responding to feature requests and bug reports from game development staff
  • Researching new tools, techniques and processes and how they can benefit the company

The skills you'll need are...

  • Excellent C/C++ skills with clear, maintainable code
  • Strong debugging, profiling and optimising
  • Ability to work with a large existing codebase, learn new systems/concepts and implement them quickly and efficiently

If you've got a strong interest or specialisation working in any specific areas of engine code, it would definitely be an advantage, as would any coding experience in other languages.

Keep Calm and waka waka...
