Job description


Position

Tarsier is looking for a Character Programmer who will focus on the controls, abilities, movement and animations of the characters. You provide the tools, hooks and support that your fellow coders, designers and animators might not even know they need to get the most out of the engine. You have a good feel for what makes a great video game character and you understand the importance of detail, finesse and subtlety in turning an amorphous bunch of pixels into a living persona. Like any great programmer, you thrive on solving problems and exploring new ways to raise the bar even further, all the while ensuring that the entire code base stays clean, efficient and functional, even over the long term.

  • Experience working on game controls and AI/NPC movement

  • Experience in C++ and UE 4
  • Currently in a junior or regular programming role on a game development team
