Iron Galaxy Studios is seeking a Programmer to join our world-class engineering team. We are a well-established independent game developer who has worked with the titans of our industry to ship more high-caliber games than any other indie developer. We’re known for our excellent work on Killer Instinct, as well as helping to bring Skyrim and Diablo III to the Nintendo Switch. We pride ourselves on being a studio that does amazing work while maintaining a positive culture and supporting work-life balance for our employees.
Programmers 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 programmer to work on more than one project in a year. The engineering team has found that this pace helps keep things fresh, provides new challenges, as well as opportunities to utilize experience gained from previous projects.
As a programmer, you will be expected to help implement features and systems, debug difficult problems, and welcome new challenges. While you may have one or more areas of expertise, you aren’t afraid to venture into other domains. In addition to your technical experience, you should have strong communication skills, and be capable of working with diverse cross-functional teams.
This opportunity is available in either Orlando, FL or Chicago, IL.
Core Responsibilities: Responsibilities vary based on the project and the programmer’s expertise. Here are some examples of what a programmer might be expected to do at Iron Galaxy Studios:
Help 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:
2+ years of experience at a game studio (any size)
Solid understanding of C/C++
Strong debugging skills
Able to adapt to new codebases and platforms
Love of video games and/or strong desire to be involved in studio life (e.g. events, game nights, making friends, etc)
