Description

As a Full-stack Unity Game Developer, you will be responsible for designing, implementing, and maintaining both gameplay and core game systems and mechanics for existing and new games. An ideal candidate for this role will be able to demonstrate generalist knowledge of the Unity3D game engine at an intermediate to advanced level.

The role is considered full-stack because, in addition to development within Unity, you will also be responsible for creating and maintaining back-end local and server-side tools, APIs, and databases which extend Unity and provide support to both internal and external users. This includes, but is not limited to, Unity editor tools for cross-functional roles such as artists, content managers, and game designers.

The ideal candidate will be self-driven, able to manage, properly estimate, and prioritise their time and tasks with little need for direction from management. While the employee in this role will report to and take some direction from a technical lead, it is expected that they will actively and enthusiastically take part in collaborative game and system design discussions, documentation, and implementation.. Our team culture is open and creative, with new ideas for games, mechanics, process improvements, etc. welcomed and encouraged.
