Programmer - UI / GUI - Liverpool , United Kingdom

Job Title UI Programmer
Job Description

Expansive Worlds is a creative division of Avalanche Studios Group and a leading developer and publisher of outdoor games. Since 2009, Expansive Worlds has been devoted to delivering highly immersive outdoor gaming experiences for millions of players and best known for the long-standing and successful theHunter franchise.

We are now looking for a UI Programmer to work with an unannounced title.

The Position
As a UI Programmer on this project you will work with designers and artists to conceive of and implement elements of how the game is presented to the player. Your work will involve implementing menu screens, maps, tutorials, in-game indicators or heads-up display (HUD), special fonts or other graphical elements according to agreed upon design specifications.

Particularly for this role, it is critical that you see your responsibility as delivering a successful end-user experience, together with your team-mates, rather than just handing off technological solutions to content creators. A game is only as good as the interface with the player allows it to be.

Previous experience and proven ability to work with multiple systems and stakeholders is a definite advantage. Finally, as with any other programming role, you will have to be able to balance functional and aesthetic requirements with technical requirements in the areas of performance, stability, memory usage, and interoperability.

Required Qualifications

  • Experienced in C/C++
  • Deep reverence for the principles of UI design
  • Experience with implementing a game UI in a professional setting in Coherent (or similar)
  • Experience in game industry 2+ years

Desired Experience

  • Familiarity with html, css and javascript
  • Respectable technical art skill
  • Previously shipped games on modern console platforms
  • A good eye for graphic design

Employee promise

We provide goals, instead of instructions, and the opportunity to do the best work of your career.

Our Values

At Avalanche Studios Group, we believe in worlds beyond limits, we are committed to developing a diverse and inclusive workplace. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. Everyone at Avalanche Studios Group has a shared responsibility to create an open and inclusive work environment where everyone is treated equally and with respect. Being part of our world is not contingent on where you’re from, your gender, or sexual orientation. It’s all about your passion and creativity.

How to Apply

We will only consider applications that consist of both a cover letter and a CV. In your cover letter you should include why you want to work at Avalanche Studios Group. For this role, you need to be able to work full-time in Liverpool. Following the UK Government’s Guidance for employers and businesses on COVID-19, all employees in Liverpool will initially join and work remotely until we can establish a physical location.
