About Splash Damage 


Come join us!  

At Splash Damage, we’re dedicated to crafting team-based multiplayer games that ignite friendships as much as they do healthy competition and teamwork.


Our teams celebrated the launch of Gears Tactics earlier this year, and we’re currently developing Outcasters for Stadia along with several unannounced titles.


As an UnrealEngine focused studio, we're excited to be transitioning our teams to the latest in UE5 technology and we're looking for skilled and passionate developers to help us drive this. We're advocates for work-life balance and offer a comprehensive benefits package focused on the well-being of our staff and their families.


We believe that teams create the best work when they have a range of perspectives and experiences to draw from.


Therefore we're committed to increasing diversity across our studio, fostering an inclusive environment to ensure everyone's voices are heard. Due to the on-going COVID-19 outbreak, we're all currently working from home. We’re still looking to welcome new team members, who'll join us remotely until we return to the studio.


Senior UI Programmer

Job Overview

Splash Damage's Senior UI Programmers bring the user experience vision for our projects to life by applying their extensive development experience and technical expertise.

Senior UI programmers can analyse a UI design and identify the individual components required to build a user interface. Working closely with UI Design, UI Code and other development disciplines, they design and implement robust and performant UI systems and core components. They are proactive at planning and estimating their own and other's work to align with specifications and project milestones.

Our Senior UI programmers are afforded a high degree of autonomy, we trust that they know best how to complete their work. They can effectively communicate solutions to complex problems, and are able to represent the UI code team both internally as well as to external partners. They enjoy working as part of a team in a friendly and collaborative atmosphere where they have the freedom to build their technical knowledge and savour a technical challenge.
