Harebrained Schemes is looking for an engineer to bring their next title to modern game consoles. Youโ€™ll work with the project engineering team and the core tech group to support the development of console specific features, and help ensure a high quality release.

If you are a thoughtful collaborator, with an understanding ofโ€”and appreciation forโ€”the complexities of parallel PC/console development, weโ€™d love to talk with you.

This is an on-site, full-time individual contributor role.

What Youโ€™ll Do

  • Help set up and manage products on publishersโ€™ development portals
  • Identify console specific issues and work to reduce technical debt on that platform
  • Have awareness of common platform requirements and implement solutions to them as needed (telemetry and services)
  • Work with the lead engineer to design and implement console specific features
  • Work with the engineering and QA teams to identify and eliminate console specific performance bottlenecks
  • Serve as a generalist Unity engineer when console development lulls
  • Engage in code review of existing and new code to improve code quality across the entire product
  • Assist with improving existing documentation as well as ensuring consistent documentation and adherence to coding standards in newly developed code.
  • Collaborate with the engineering, QA, and production teams to maximize your contributions.
  • Provide realistic task estimations based on your own ability.

What Youโ€™ll Bring

  • Youโ€™ve worked on a variety of projects - big or small, indie or 1st party, PC or console or mobile, licensed or new IP, etc. - to understand the breadth of issues you have to anticipate and know that every project is different
  • You have specific experience with at least one of the modern console platforms
  • You have worked as a professional game programmer with at least two shipped titles.
  • You have professional Unity development experience.
  • You are an excellent C# programmer.
