Job description

We’re working with Free Radical Design to support their search for a Tools Programmer.

The studio origins can be traced back to the late 1990's when, several colleagues working at Rare, left to form Free Radical Design. Building upon their experience of creating GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64, Free Radical Design's debut title was the much-loved TimeSplitters for the PlayStation 2. TimeSplitters 2 followed and as the studio's success grew - as did its size, with multiple teams working on Second Sight, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect and the PlayStation 3 exclusive, Haze.

Fast forwarding to the present date, Free Radical Design have teamed up with Deep Silver Dambuster Studios to spark the next game in the TimeSplitters franchise. Despite having close links to DS Dambuster, they are managing the project independently. What this means for you is the chance to work on a AAA style game while reaping the benefits of the indie studio office vibe.

The studio has a reputation for technological innovation and bring an extremely high standard of professionalism to game development in a fun and inclusive environment.

  • Experience in source control, automatic building, and unit testing tools
