SENIOR SOFTWARE ENGINEER - SERVER

Visual Concepts is one of the world’s top game development studios with a flat, entrepreneurial, and non-corporate work environment. We have a proven track record having shipped over 100 multi-SKU titles to great critical acclaim.

Most recently, NBA 2K17 for PS4, Xbox One and PC is the highest Metacritic-rated sports game of this generation with critics such as Game Informer stating that “in the world of sports sims, no other game feels like it’s even on the same level as NBA 2K17” with “unrivaled gameplay, presentation and game modes.” Forbes noted that “NBA 2K’s depth continues to set the bar for the genre” and GameSpot raves “it makes me wish that every sport got the same treatment that basketball does in NBA 2K17.” The New York Daily News concludes “the entire package is as robust as a sports game has ever been” and “this year, that experience is even more stunning and addictive.”

As “the uncontested developer of sports videogames” (PlayStation LifeStyle), Visual Concepts is committed to gaming and technical innovation everywhere. 

Who are you? You’re rare. Never satisfied with anything less than coding perfection, you are constantly looking for ways to out-scale, outperform and outclass the current best standards of excellence. There is never a moment when you are not visualizing complicated software systems and looking for ways to make them better, simpler, and faster. Scalable? Check. Reliable? Check. Redundant? Check. Bugs? Nope. Not on your watch. You are a stickler for incredible detail and when you write code you’re creating a masterpiece and you’re not satisfied with anything less. You know that there is nothing more amazing than designing and writing code that solves cool problems for millions of users on powerful computers across multiple data centers and does so with grace and ease. Why write code that runs on one system when it can run on a thousand?  

This is not an IT role. You’re not a technician. You’re not a database administrator. You’re a software engineer. And you bring a proven deep understanding of software architecture and computer programming to the task at handle of designing, implementing, optimizing and perfecting software running in C++ and Python for massively-multiplayer online features and functionality in some of the best videogames on the planet. Come play a key role at one of the best studios in the world and let your coding perfectionism run free.
