We are developing Ember Sword, a groundbreaking social sandbox MMORPG game set in a community-driven PvE and PvP fantasy universe.
As a Senior Game Tools Programmer, you are responsible for proactively proposing, designing, and building efficient tooling for Engineers, Gameplay Programmers, Designers, and Artists. Your focus will be to improve the overall development cycle and iteration speed of our game. Ember Sword is built on a custom-built ECS-based game engine written in C++. It is compiled with Emscripten to WebAssembly and runs directly in your browser. It currently loads in just 5 seconds and we’re aiming for the game to be platform agnostic. Therefore we care greatly about the quality and performance of our code and don't shy away from refactoring if needed.
Your success will be measured by stable and efficient tools that are used in day-to-day production by your colleagues.
