Do you have tools programmer experience, and are you looking for a new remote-working opportunity? Skillsearch is helping a gaming company hire a Tools Programmer, and the role comes with an attractive salary and benefits package. The company has studios based in Oxford, Warwick, Liverpool and Wakefield.

  • Maintaining and developing the toolset framework underpinning the content editing application, which others build upon to develop content creation tools 
  • Collaborating with content creators to write some of those tools and provide support to other engine teams and game teams 
  • Taking responsibility for one or more areas of the code, maintaining backlogs of related issues and reviewing with stakeholders the priorities and progress in that area 
  • Reviewing the code and designs of other team members to give constructive feedback. 

Candidates should understand content creation workflows and creating editor UI and be enthusiastic about engaging with content creators to create and improve workflows. You will also require: 

  • Experience with UI patterns such as MVVM, MVP or MVC, and event propagation through UI 
  • Familiarity with approaches to ensure consistent UX across a large toolset 
  • An understanding of techniques to create extensible, future-proof solutions. 

In return for your passion, collaborative approach and commitment, you will receive a generous salary and benefits package, joining a friendly and inclusive culture.
