Gameplay Engineer

Company: Pocket Gems
Location: San Francisco
Posted on: June 15, 2019

Job Description:

Pocket Gems wants to build the greatest games and interactive entertainment in the world. That's the mission our founders began with in an apartment above a pizza shop back in 2009 and we continue it today.

Pocket Gems has grown to over 250 people in San Francisco. With $155 million in backing from Sequoia Capital and Tencent, we're constantly breaking new ground with graphically rich mobile games, fun new genres of mobile entertainment, and innovative technologies like our mobile-first Mantis Engine.

Our products have been downloaded over 325 million times by players around the world. Most recently, we've launched Wild Beyond, a fast-paced and strategic 3D combat game, Episode, a mobile storytelling network and platform, and War Dragons, a visually stunning 3D real-time strategy game.

As a Gameplay Engineer, you'll work closely with designers and artists in a small, cross-functional team to prototype new and experimental features for our upcoming titles.

What You'll Do:


  • Collaborate with designers to bring game prototypes from ideas to reality
  • Contribute your individual knowledge and independent research to produce solutions with the right game-feel
  • Design and code game features, balancing the trade-off between short-term iteration speed and long-term benefits

    What You Bring to Engineering Team:


    • 2+ years of engineering experience on a game title
    • Fluent in at least one C; quick at adapting and picking up new environments and languages
    • Strong communication skills toward all team functions - designers, artists, and other engineers
    • Strong sense of ownership in start-to-finish delivery of game features
    • Passion for games and deep understanding of game mechanics
    • BA/BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience

      Extra Gems For:


      • Prior mobile development experience
      • Experience with major third-party engines (such as Unity or Unreal) and third-party scripting systems (Lua, Blueprints)
      • Mathematical expertise (especially linear algebra), academic or otherwise
      • Artistic expertise (especially in animation), academic or otherwise

        Pocket Gems is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate based on race, color, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran status, genetic information, marital status or any legally protected status.

        Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
