We are looking for a skilled, resourceful and enthusiastic Game Engineer to join our War Commander development team in KIXEYE's Victoria studio.

Released over six years ago, War Commander continues to be a leader in MMORTS, serving thousands of dedicated players.

Ideally, you are a full stack developer familiar with the gamut of application development languages and tools.  The War Commander stack includes Scala, PHP, C++, and AS3, and as a live ops game with a large audience, comprehensive DevOps skills are an asset as well.

  • Kick ass and take names, or ideally have no time for taking names as you've already moved on to the kicking of other asses

Requirements:

  • Proficient in some or all of the core technologies in the game: C++, Scala, PHP, AS3, Python
  • Knowledge of common data structures and algorithms, ideally AI as well
  • Bachelor degree in Game Dev/Computer Science or equivalent work experience
