UE4 Coder/Developer – Contract – Virtual/Remote – Full Time

 

The UE4 Coder Role

As a UE4 coder you will be working on various components of the game in UE4, generally to upgrade existing components or add functionality. On a routine basis, you will also add maps, props, costumes, NPCs created by the art team and make sure they integrate correctly with the game. You will be mentored by our lead coder, especially with regards to Ship of Heroes’ proprietary tools and processes, but otherwise be working mostly independently. This is not a beginner position or an artist role.

As we are a small studio, you will likely get an opportunity to work on other things, according to your interests and skills and the needs of the game.

See an overview of the game or visit the Steam store page.
