We love games and believe in their unique superpower to create personal, unforgettable stories that bring friends and the community closer together. We are building a culture of shared ownership where everyone gets a chance to weigh in and help set direction for the game. Our studio is in its early days, which means there’s tons of opportunity to have a big impact on what we are making as well as in the overall direction of the company.  Most importantly, we know our games will be at their best when a variety of voices, identities and perspectives go into their creation, so come join us!

Do you enjoy collaborating with other disciplines such as art, engineering and design? Are you someone that is passionate about making the best user experience ever in games?

  • Provide tools and support to UI designers with the goal of creating simple, responsive UI that conveys the appropriate degree of information to our players
  • Write clear, maintainable and high-performance UI code that supports a variety of locales across PC and console platforms

Some of the things you bring to the table…

  • Proficiency in C/C++ and experience with game scripting languages
  • Prior game UI development experience
  • Experience collaborating with a cross-disciplinary group
  • Strong critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration skills


  • Experience developing UI for multiplayer action games with a first-person perspective
  • Experience with Unreal Engine and UMG
