Senior Gameplay Programmer

Well Played Games is a small but experienced games development company based in Leamington Spa, UK. Founded in 2017, our aim is to build live free-to-play video games across multiple platforms. We are looking for a Senior Programmer to join our development team on a new project.

The Role

As part of a project’s code team, you will be responsible for the support of the live game and the design and development of new game features. You will work closely with the whole team, especially art and design.

You will utilise a variety of programming languages and technologies on all aspects of developing and supporting the game – working across the client and server sides of the game, platform-specific features, as well as tools, simulations, testing frameworks, and other technology.

As a senior developer, you will be an expert in many areas in your discipline. You will have experienced the development cycle many times, and will apply that experience to design and decision-making. You will be able to take responsibility over the most complex technical tasks, driving efficiency, collaboration and quality, both in and beyond your discipline.

Your Skills and Experience

  • You will have 5+ years of relevant professional programming experience, and will have been through the entire lifecycle of multiple games (ideally including mobile F2P).
  • You must have a high level of skill in C#, and ideally in other relevant languages (e.g. C++, Java, Objective-C, Go, NodeJS).
  • You will ideally have experience developing for mobile devices/OSs (especially iOS and Android).
  • You will ideally have experience with server/web development or cloud platforms such as PlayFab, Firebase, GameSparks or Heroic Labs.
  • You must have highly developed professional and soft skills – supporting, mentoring, and providing an exemplary professional example to more junior colleagues.
  • You should have a keen eye for deconstructing problems and an architectural mindset.
  • You must be able to demonstrate a talent and enthusiasm for technology and making high quality games.
  • You must have a proactive and positive attitude to collaboration and learning, and a keen interest in trends in games and technology
