Tools Programmer

Playground Games – Leamington Spa, UK

Have you been keeping track of all of the tittles being announced for next gen consoles? Did the teaser clip of Fable at the end of Xbox’s presentation throw you back to 2004, when you were just starting your career in games development? Maybe it was still just a hobby at that point?

Playground Games are looking for a Lead AI Developer to join their talented Fable team! Want to help them bring this revived classic to life?

Could you add value to this award winning AAA studio, based in Leamington Spa?  Widely recognised as one of the best places to work in the UK games industry, you will be rubbing shoulders with supremely talented and experienced game devs. As well as receiving an array of perks and benefits, including flexible working hours, private health care, and duvet days, you'll also be working on a property that will make the rest of the industry jealous.

You will become a key part of the team, responsible for designing and engineering the tools and pipelines. Your role is the front line between the technical team and asset creation teams, so you must have good communication skills and the ability to provide excellent customer service. You must be flexible, highly motivated, and approachable.

The skills and XP you'll need to succeed:

  • Good C++ and/or C# skills
  • Knowledge of a variety of techniques for creating custom tools solutions such as scripts, plug-ins, and pre-existing software
  • Excellent communication skills
  • A passion for games

This is an exceptional opportunity to join a team and project at an early stage, giving you the rare chance to shape the future of an exciting and large-scale AAA title from the outset. It will provide exciting new challenges for any experienced developer looking to further their career and create world class games.
