Lead Software Developer in Test, Netcode
Game developers repeatedly say that multiplayer game creation remains one of their hardest challenges; balancing ease-of-use with performance and flexibility remains unsolved. As a result, we have seen far too little innovation in multiplayer games over the last decade, while creativity in single-player games has thrived.

- You will define testing methodologies to tackle some of the unique challenges in automated testing of multiplayer scenarios
- Work closely with the other developers to perform test analysis and help prevent functional or performance regressions in the networking libraries.
- Build automation and tests to validate networking functionality across multiple platforms and estimate tasks and manage time optimally.
- You will chip in on tooling and analysis of performance and stability testing by integrating and adapting existing Unity test systems.
What we’re looking for
- Experience as an SDET with a consistent record of shipping high quality products
- Experience with performance-focused testing and analysis.
- Experience developing automated test frameworks
- Tight-knit collaboration and communication skills, both in person and via digital means with the ability to work in a team environment.
