Tools & Tech Programmer plays a key role in developing modern and effective ways to develop games and help our game teams to become more productive in the future. In practice, this means (at least) the following:

  • Evaluating, designing and developing tools and technologies to help our game teams and increase their productivity in all game development disciplines
  • Ensuring our tools are technically robust, compatible and scalable yet easy to maintain
  • Working closely with our teams and external partners to ensure our production workflows are fast, well automated and robust
  • Finding new and exciting ways to improve game development and produce future-proof long-term solutions


Every role is eventually shaped to match our unique passions, backgrounds and strengths. Here are some of the key skills and experience you should already have when joining Metacore as a Tools & Tech Programmer:

  • A good understanding of the technologies used in software development as well as the paradigms of game development
  • Previous work experience that relates to our tech stack like, for example, Rust, Typescript, and C#
  • Knack for troubleshooting and solving tricky technical problems, and anticipating issues that might emerge when operating a live game product
  • Practical know-how of building and operating scalable applications for a large mass of simultaneous users
  • Commitment to code quality, documentation and testing procedures
  • Proactive self-starter who’s not afraid to take calculated risks, think outside the box, and is constantly finding ways to improve and optimize
  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to cooperate with different teams

In addition to these, it would be nice but not mandatory for you to have some of these as well:

Experience in:

  • implementing technologies related to ML and AI
  • working with multi-platform and SAAS products
  • API design and microservices
  • Understanding of
  • modern game engines such as Unity and Unreal
