Software Engineer

Iron Galaxy employees can elect to work from the office or home through end-2021. This policy extends to anyone that Iron Galaxy hires between now and then. Any equipment that you might need for projects at Iron Galaxy will be set up for you onsite or shipped directly to you based on preference.

Diversity matters at Iron Galaxy. Every day, our team strives to build on an inclusive environment where all voices are equal. We believe in continuous improvement. Our constant growth relies on being open to the cultures of players everywhere. Whether you find us online or in our games, Iron Galaxy provides a safe space for everyone. For all positions, we are looking for the next team member to challenge us to be better.

Software Engineers at Iron Galaxy work on a wide variety of projects, including creating new games from the ground up, co-developing games with partners, and porting existing games to new platforms. Our projects tend to have shorter development cycles; it’s not uncommon for a software engineer to work on more than one project in a year. We’ve found that this helps keep things fresh and provides opportunities to utilize experience gained from previous projects.

As a Software Engineer at Iron Galaxy, you’ll get the chance to help architect and implement features and systems, debug difficult problems, and tackle new challenges. In addition to their technical skills, our software engineers typically have strong communication skills, and work well with diverse cross-functional teams.

This opportunity is for a full-time position, either in Chicago, IL or Orlando, FL.

RESPONSIBILITIES: This is a mid-level position. Candidates should have a solid knowledge of game development. Responsibilities vary based on the project and expertise. Here are some examples of what a Software Engineer might be expected to do at Iron Galaxy Studios:

  • Implement new features or systems
  • Assist in the creation of technical design documents for new systems
  • Review game design documents and provide feedback
  • Implement low-level subsystems for new platforms
  • Ensure adherence to platform compliance requirements

What else are we looking for? Here’s our wishlist for the ideal candidate. If you possess most of these qualities, you may very well be the one we’re looking for:

  • Experience at a game studio (any size)
  • Solid understanding of C/C++
  • Desire to learn and grow
  • Strong debugging skills
  • Able to adapt to new codebases and platforms
