Senior UE Programmer


You will be working hand -in-hand with our Designers, Unreal programmers and Producers, in the development of a photorealistic multiplayer project that is accessible via any device using pixel streaming. You will be responsible for the implementation of key features as well as solving important technical challenges throughout development.

Pixel streaming enables high-end PC performance on the browser with a combination of local or virtual PCs running the game/project in a game engine (Unreal Engine) and streaming it to the web (WebRTC). Our project has been designed as a scalable solution, so the deployment and scaling will happen in virtual machines on the cloud.

Is this you?

You have extensive experience working on multiplayer applications within Unreal Engine, managing server infrastructure and game-as-service features.

You have 5+ years of experience with the following technologies: 

  • Background in Software Engineering, Unreal Development or other relevant role
  • Understanding of modern C/ C++/Blueprints
  • Unreal Engine (able to work independently or in collaboration with other developers)
  • Strong C++ and blueprinting skills in Unreal Engine 4
  • Ability to take light designs and communicate in order to flesh out a full implementation
  • Data structures, logic and algorithm skills
  • Understanding of vector math
  • Experience working with client/server architecture
  • Experience with performance analysis and code optimization
  • High level of comfort extending and improving upon an existing code base
  • Profiling and optimization
  • Plugin integration, integration of innovative 3rd party systems

Nice to have:

  • Interest towards pixel streaming, Web3, or Metaverse
  • Experience with VR or AR
  • Experience with WebRTC, Node.js or backend architecture
  • Experience of integration of non-native C++ modules to Unreal Engine

To succeed in the team…

  • You are solution-oriented and resourceful (you enjoy problem-solving, you have a passion for developing new solutions and creating innovative products)
  • You have great collaboration skills (you are willing to share knowledge and help others within the team, but know also to ask for help when you need it)
  • You are a fluent communicator in English
