You will play a leading role in defining and delivering state of the art solutions for the global developer community.

  • Deliver technologies for developers
  • Opportunity for mentoring and technical leadership of a small team of engineers

  • Experience of game engine systems (eg memory management, task management, streaming)
  • Experience of low-level coding, performance analysis and optimization
  • Experience of current generation console development
  • Experience working at a senior level in a game development environment
  • Comfortable with shader programming on modern GPUs
  • Good understanding of computer hardware architecture
  • Forward thinking, and keen to be at the forefront of the next generation of consoles

  • Good people skills, and able to mentor more junior members of staff
  • Good presentation and communication skills

Nice to have:

  • Modern GI/raytracing techniques
  • Physically based rendering pipelines
  • Virtual Reality
  • Experience implementing research papers/reports

Benefits of working at R&D

  • Opportunities to work on collaborative projects with R&D teams
  • Opportunities to attend relevant conferences
  • Innovation time for research and projects of your own choosing
  • Opportunities to participate in global hackathons
  • Relaxed working environment with high level of trust and autonomy. All staff are encouraged to express their views and challenge the status quo
