About the role

As a Gameplay Programmer at Tarsier, you’ll join a team in a unique position: Developing our new franchise following in the footsteps of award winning Little Nightmares.

You’ll work in a cross-disciplinary team to develop the team’s ideas into playable mechanics, features and systems and polish them to excellence. You understand what quality gameplay means and can feel what the game wants. You like solving problems in a team and experimenting with new ways to make the game better for the players.

At Tarsier, it's important that our office is welcoming and fun so that our employees want to work onsite; because we believe that working closely with your team is the best way to make great games. That is why our office management and HR department works closely with making the office a really good place to both work and hangout in. We have a large focus on ergonomic, personal work stations, we eat breakfast together on Fridays, and we play games together in the game room. Sometimes we even grab an after work beer together in the kitchen, or throw a Christmas party for the ages.

  • Participating in code reviews and helping to ensure a high level of quality in our code bases

  • Adhering to and actively influencing best practices and processes

  • Being a positive and professional influence to our team and the company

We believe that you are:
