With a passion to deliver experiences such as high-end interactive drama and immersive VR, Supermassive Games is carving a unique and exciting path in the games industry. Want to join us on the journey?

The Story

We’ve harnessed Unreal Engine 4 and built a suite of powerful, world-class systems on top of it.  Now we need you to help us take this further.

You’ll be helping a dedicated team finish our Android only mobile title. Experience of using Unreal 4 using C++ is the core experience required for this contract.

What we're looking for:

  • Experience shipping games on an Android Platform in Unreal Engine 4.  Detailed knowledge of SDK and technical requirements of this combination.
  • Expert in C++ - you’ve worked with C++ for 3+ years, and contributed to shipped games on mobile.
  • Great Communicator - you can talk about your work. You’ll be as comfortable specifying a task with designers and collaborating on a shared codebase with engineers as you are taking feedback from directors and producers.
  • Practical - sometimes a rapid prototype is needed to quickly test an idea. Other times a mission-critical system needs detailed planning and consultation.  You have an instinct for what level of engineering is needed, and you can work efficiently at any level.
  • Passion for Games - you’ve probably been playing games forever. You understand an engaging player experience and are confident reproducing it in code.

We'd be especially impressed by:

  • Experience with Virtual or Augmented Reality.  How to work with motion controllers and headsets as well as an awareness of how VR changes traditional game mechanics and UI principles.  Ideas for maximising the benefits of VR, without being hampered by the constraints.

You also need to be:

  • Flexible and open-minded
  • Determined and self-motivated
  • Prepared to rise to a challenge
  • Always striving for quality
  • Creative and innovative
