Gameplay Engineer

City State Entertainment is looking for gameplay engineers to help create Camelot Unchained (working title), an old-school RvR MMORPG. You'll work primarily within our server code to implement features from combat to crafting to guilds. You can also expect to make forays into client code to expose those features to the user, although you can leave the hardcore engine development and final UI polish to others.


  • Fluency in C++, C#, or Java

  • Avid and thoughtful gamer, especially of MMORPGs

  • Strong data structures and algorithm skills

  • Broad general understanding of game systems such as combat, physics, and pathfinding

  • Knowledge of network programming considerations


Big Advantages 

  • Experience with both C++ and C#

  • Experience with JavaScript and web development

  • Strong 3D math skills (linear algebra, calculus, trigonometry)

  • Prior experience creating client/server systems

  • Experience with metrics and analytics, especially in games

  • Understanding of distributed systems

  • Mastery of threading and concurrency

  • Prior experience and expertise in a specific specialty such as AI, physics, or combat

  • Prior shipped titles in the game industry

Little Pluses

  • Experience with MongoDB or other document-oriented data stores

  • Degree in computer science or a related field

  • Experience with functional programming (LISP, OCaml, Haskell, etc.)

Note: City State Entertainment is hiring for a broad range of positions on a growing team (www.camelotunchained.com/jobs). We have definite skill and task needs, but the eventual division of tasks within the team will depend on the eventual team members. If you're an outstanding and talented individual whose qualifications fall halfway between two of our listings, we'd still like to hear from you. All candidates must have excellent written and verbal communication skills and be able to work on-site at our Washington DC-area office in the U.S.A. We are an emphatically equal-opportunity employer.
