Rebellion – West Yorkshire, UK

We are working with Rebellion in their search for a Senior programmer to join their team at Rebellion North in Ossett, West Yorkshire.

Are you an experienced programmer looking for a new opportunity where you can make a real impact on an unannounced, world-class IP? In addition to working on Rebellion’s games you will also be working on genre-defining AAA IPs for Rebellion’s trusted industry partners. You will be joining an ambitious team working on multiple projects using different engines including Unreal 5.

Rebellion are looking for someone who is a creative thinker, and enjoys the challenge of providing solid solutions to complex problems. This role involves working across many areas of game development, helping to design, schedule, and deliver code with cutting-edge technology on all the latest platforms.

As a Senior Programmer, you will be self-motivated with a high level of initiative and comfortable working unsupervised. You’re able to adapt quickly and support in-house working practices and assist in mentoring Junior Programmers. As part of the Rebellion North team, you’ll be delivering code for multiple high-end projects with a focus on optimising code and delivery outcomes.

Your responsibilities will be…
  • Develop and implement cutting-edge, intuitive solutions for next-gen gameplay, debugging, maintaining, and extending your own and existing code
  • Write robust and maintainable code, optimising code for performance per platform
  • Meet game design and technical requirements and internal coding standards, communicating with designers, artists, and other coders to ensure game requirements and quality are met
  • Identify and solve development obstacles or risks that arise, suggesting improvements and implementing solutions to improve performance and reliability
  • Write and maintain technical documentation
  • Research new tools, techniques, and processes and feedback on how they can benefit the studio
  • Collaborate productively within a large multi-disciplined project team environment, communicating ideas and issues clearly, and supporting all coders on your team as required

The skills and experience you’ll bring to the role…
  • Excellent C/C++ skills at a professional level
  • Ability to quickly familiarise yourself and work with a large existing codebase
  • Ability to prototype as well as produce final code
  • Strong debugging, profiling, and optimising, system design and 3D math skills
  • Knowledge of console, general games and/or multiplayer development, and/or development tools such as Visual Studio and Perforce/other version control systems would be an advantage
  • Comfortable working to deadlines to meet multiple production objectives
  • Unreal experience would be an advantage but not essential

For 30 years Rebellion have been creating incredible video games; they also have their own film and mo-cap studio, they create board games, publish books, and through 2000AD, publish comics and graphic novels such as the amazing Judge Dredd.
