Ballistic Moon is an established Independent Game Studio, based in the South-East of England. They are a rapidly growing team of highly experienced and passionate developers, focused on creating the outstanding and amazing games of the future.

With a major project for a renowned publisher, and their own IP on the way, they are creating new genre-defining games in Unreal Engine 5. They are looking for additional team members to join their group of developers and creatives to help them to realise their vision.

  • Ability to work well with other members of the development team and the founders
  • Proficiency in the use of modern IDEs
  • Be able to track, add and manage your own tasks proficiently using agile development
  • 5+ years experience in software development
  • 3+ years with C#, Python or JavaScript
  • Thorough experience with creating and maintaining automation servers for a company

Bonus points if you have...

  • Experience in the video games industry (preferable a shipped title)
  • 3+ years experience with C++
  • A history of working within agile development environments
  • Experience with Jenkins automation server
  • A passion for games
