SENIOR GAMEPLAY ANIMATION ENGINEER


SENIOR GAMEPLAY ANIMATION ENGINEER

Let’s talk some truth: making games is hard. It’s a collision of art & technology that’s about as predictable as a tornado. There’s no secret formula, no foolproof blueprint – but it certainly helps to have a reason for making games in the first place. “Every Player’s Story is Unique.” At Hangar 13, that’s why we make games. We want to give players the freedom to choose how to overcome challenges and make meaningful decisions that shape the world and characters around them.

Hangar 13 is the newest 2K development studio. We’re focused on creating AAA games for console and PC. The studio is comprised of industry veterans drawn from a diverse range of studios, who have collectively shipped hundreds of titles across a wide variety of genres. We are located just thirty minutes north of San Francisco, and we recently released our first title, Mafia III. We’re currently building our own proprietary engine and tools in service of our next AAA title, still unannounced.

What We Need:  

Hangar 13 is looking for a Senior Gameplay Animation Engineer to develop, write, implement, and debug code for new and upgraded software products.

  • Adhere to the project’s coding standards
  • Research coding techniques and algorithms in order to keep current on technological developments and advancements in the game industry
  • Identify technical and developmental risks/obstacles and generate solutions to overcome identified risks

Who We Think Will Be A Great Fit:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related discipline
  • 5+ years of programming experience in a creative environment
  • Experience developing for games, preferably action, FPS or 3PS titles
  • One or more of these is required:
