Great Salary and Benefits
One of the leading independent game studios in the world is looking for an AI Programmer to help realise their vision for the next blockbuster on Xbox One.
They want your help in taking the artificial intelligence, character & enemy behaviour to the next level. You’d be working in close co-operation with game designers and programmers. You will be working on the next iteration of their in-house engine that was previously used in their recent successful titles.
So what are looking for?
To decide who gets the job, they put emphasis on the following criteria.
-Solid C++ skills. That’s the tool for this trade, so you should be comfortable with it and know your way around objects, templates, exceptions and common performance pitfalls.
-AI experience. You know what makes good & fun AI for games. You have worked on, for example, path finding, obstacle avoidance, decision making, and group behaviour or planning.
-3D Math skills. Linear algebra, vectors & matrices don’t intimidate you. -Maybe you've written an awesome math library?
-Basic game development experience.
-You've worked in game projects as an AI programmer, either on your spare time or commercially.
-Fluent in English. As a multinational organisation, they expect you to be able to communicate efficiently with rest of the team in English.
-Team player. You thrive in a team, bouncing ideas back and forth and getting inspired by what others are doing.
-You’re truly at home in a cross-discipline environment, and even game designers with their odd requirements don’t freak you out.
-You live for games. Even though you dedicate the best part of your day to game development, you still find the time to play them and follow the industry on your spare time.
Bonus points if you have:
-Experience with AI middleware; perhaps you've integrated one to your engine at some point?
-Worked on AI in game projects, and you understand how AI needs to co-operate with animation, gameplay etc.
So what’s in it for you then?
This fantastic studio offers you a chance to do something new and unique. Working as a member of a talented and experienced team with world-class game technology means you have an excellent opportunity to develop yourself and take your career to new heights.
They work hard but we also value a sane work-life balance, and are committed to providing the team with a relaxed working environment.
Naturally there’s a competitive compensation package with health care & insurance waiting for you, and should you be moving from abroad they’re there for you every step of the way.
