Full job description

Founded by experienced entrepreneurs from the tech and entertainment industries, Outlier is an independent video game studio based in Dublin, Ireland.

The studio’s first game, This Means Warp, released in Early Access on Steam in 2022 followed by a 1.0 release across PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch in 2023 (published by Jagex, the creators of RuneScape).

Following the success of TMW Outlier is currently ramping up production on a larger second title, a strategy/simulation game based on a well-known darkly comedic sci-fi IP. Think RollerCoaster Tycoon meets Prison Architect.

As a Senior Gameplay Programmer you will work alongside the Technical Director to develop the core gameplay functionality of Outlier's games. We create premium strategy and simulation games for core gamers on PC and consoles, leveraging well-known IP.

You will be designing, developing, and optimizing modular and reusable systems utilizing SOLID coding principles. Working with C# and the Unity game engine, you will help prototype new ideas and create robust production-ready systems within an existing code-base.

You will be working as part of a tight-knit team, with autonomy and ownership of significant parts of a game's development. You will feed into the game's design, help shape the approach to technical implementation, and gain exposure to all elements of production.

REQUIREMENTS

  • MUST BE BASED IN (OR WILLING TO RELOCATE TO) NORTHERN IRELAND
  • 6+ years experience with Unity and C# programming
  • One or more commercially released game(s) on PC and/or consoles
  • Strong debugging skills and intimate knowledge of modular coding structures
  • Basic knowledge of version control systems such as Git
  • Fluent English

ADDITIONAL PREFERRED SKILLS

  • Experience programming strategy or management games
  • Experience with state machines and developing complex artificial intelligence for in-game characters
  • Knowledge of Unity's ECS / DOTS, Addressables, and Profiling tools
  • Released a commercial game as the lead or sole programmer

Unfortunately for this role we are unable to accept any applications that will not be based in Northern Ireland.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

  • Secure, funded studio that commits to long-term careers
  • Work on games that inspire passion in the hardcore gaming community. No F2P, microtransactions, casual games, or mobile-focused titles
  • Small-team ethos with minimal bureaucracy. Have an idea, implement it
  • Ownership of large sections of a game's codebase
  • Gain exposure to all elements of a game's design, production, marketing, and release

Job Types: Full-time, Permanent

Salary: £45,000.00-£70,000.00 per year

Benefits:

  • Casual dress
  • Company events
  • Employee mentoring programme
  • Relocation assistance
  • Unlimited paid holidays
  • Work from home

Schedule:

  • Monday to Friday
  • No weekends
