Our game teams are responsible for generating the concepts and designs for our titles and bringing these ideas and experiences to life for our players.
As a Senior Gameplay Programmer on one of our game teams, you'll work with other programmers, designers, artists, testers and production staff to create game features.
In this multi-disciplinary environment, everyone has a part to play in providing inspiration and creativity and no-one truly performs just a single role.
It doesn't matter where an idea originates, whether from an intern or a senior member of the team, it's just as worthy of consideration and inclusion in our games.
Gameplay Programmers can expect to work on many aspects of a game. Game teams work in smaller groups targeting a specific milestone experience.
Within these sub-groups, Senior Gameplay Programmers help to define these milestones, and can expect to work on all aspects of the end-to-end user experience such as system design, networked gameplay, artificial intelligence or user interfaces, so the flexibility and a desire to give something a try are key.
We're big believers in high-quality engineering here at Rare and aim for fast iteration with robust methods. This means that we embrace modern development practices such as continuous delivery, automated testing, code reviews, pair programming and agile methods.
We encourage everyone to explore and grow their own skills, whether through engineering discussions, volunteering to host one of our in-house workshops, or signing up to be part of our Engineering Process group to help steer how we build games in the future.
REQUIRED SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
Graphics, audio programming, artificial intelligence, network sync, web services, engine development, build systems and suchlike.
That's not an exhaustive list, by the way, just some examples. Tell us about yours.
You'll have demonstrable experience of its practical application, but not necessarily from inside the games industry.
