Job Description

We are working in partnership with a Powerhouse AAA gaming studio, who are known for their world class photo realistic cinematic and VR titles.

They are now looking for a GamePlay & Physics Programmer, to based in Guildford 

They are aiming to achieve Hollywood production values in real time, so we’re engaging with industry-leading, next generation features for rendering, content creation and human simulation that will intensify the player experience.

THE ROLE

You will be a key part of the team for one of our games. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Developing game systems with a particular focus on the use of physics to achieve realistic interactive results
  • Applying a deep understanding of industry-standard physics APIs to meet the requirements of the game and suggest new approaches
  • Being involved at any stage of asset production from specification to platform-specific challenges

  • Strong 3D Maths – you have a broad knowledge of the theory and practical application of 3D maths in games.
  • Great Communicator - you can talk about your work. You’ll be as comfortable specifying a task with designers and collaborating on a shared codebase with engineers as you are taking feedback from directors and producers.
  • Practical - sometimes a rapid prototype is needed to quickly test an idea. Other times a mission-critical system needs detailed planning and consultation. You have an instinct for what level of engineering is needed, and you can work efficiently at any level.
  • Passion for Games - you’ve probably been playing games forever. You understand an engaging player experience and are confident reproducing it in code.
