Relic Entertainment, a wholly owned studio of SEGA, is the award winning RTS developer of Homeworld, Dawn of War and Company of Heroes, and we’re on the hunt for Senior Programmers to join the team at our HQ in Vancouver, Canada. As a studio, our role is to create a workplace where people are energized and empowered to not only do their best work but to continually surpass their best. We’ll push you out of your comfort zone to become the best version of you by giving you the ownership and creative freedom to solve our most challenging problems. 

We're on the search for Senior Programmers who are excited to code in all disciplines: AI, Engine & Optimization, Build, Gameplay, Rendering, Tools and UI. 

As our Senior Programmer, here's what you might be doing...

  • Maintain and develop features for our game and the tools that go with it
  • Contribute ideas on all aspects of game production and development
  • Collaborate with team members of various disciplines to review proposed features and develop those features from definition to testing
  • Create software systems that are intrinsically scalable and cross platform
  • Roll up your sleeves and work to regularly debug, profile and optimize code

We're looking for someone who has...

  • 8+ years’ experience in games or has shipped multiple AAA or console titles
  • A post-secondary education (degree) in Computer Science, Engineering or a related field
  • Strong knowledge of C++
  • Knowledge of C#, Java, Action Script 3, and Lua 
  • A love for games: You’re a gamer with a passion for creating the best games for our players
  • A down to earth attitude: You strive to be the best in your field and you welcome feedback, change, and real talk!
  • Passion to evolve and grow: You want to hone your craft to create a legacy while contributing to Relic’s roadmap to the future

It's a bonus if you...

  • Experience with MFC 
  • Interest in math and linear algebra 
  • A website or github account with samples of your code

What’s in it for you? 

You will become part of the SEGA family (includes Creative AssemblySports Interactive, and Hardlight Studio) which means you’ll have an opportunity to work on AAA games and learn a ton. We also offer top-notch benefits and perks, including an extensive extended health benefits plan, retirement savings plan, and support for any required relocation or immigration efforts. On top of that, we realize it takes world-class people to make world-class games so we offer competitive total compensation packages.
