Don’t miss this chance to collaborate directly with the creators of the critically acclaimed game ABZU. Giant Squid is looking for a passionate engineer to work on elegant and efficient, yet evocative, beautiful and meaningful experiences.

As our gameplay programmer, we will depend on your natural sense for game theory and your ability to apply advanced mathematics, physics, and code to make your designs a reality. This role will involve brainstorming gameplay ideas with the team and then prototyping variations in engine. Examples may include player movement and controls, dynamic camera logic, AI behaviors, interactive objects, and environmental player feedback, among many others. Our process involves iterating, refining, and playtesting to arrive at game elements that are elegant, iconic, and simple to understand. This means that your ability to learn from and then discard ideas that aren’t working will be crucial to arriving at the most succinct expression of our design goals.

Beyond a core understanding of gameplay programming in C++, we are looking for a team player who shares our excitement for learning, researching new techniques, wearing multiple hats and stepping outside of regular workflows to innovate and make things happen. You will be working closely with animators, artists, and other programmers to implement game mechanics and great feeling interactions. A collaborative mindset will be crucial as you help us find solutions to unforseen challenges requiring cross disiplinary teamwork that we discover as we bring our next project to life.
