Job Vacancy Background
Work on ground-breaking multiplayer titles, push the boundaries of games technology and virtual worlds, or get to grips with some of the world’s toughest security challenges. If your ambitions are high, we’ll give you the tools, support and culture to take them even higher.
At Improbable, we believe that the next revolution in entertainment and society will come from massive virtual worlds. They will create new economies and opportunities globally, changing not just how we play, but how we work and relate to each other. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to build the next generation of technologies for online multi-user games and simulations.
At Improbable, you are surrounded by people who want to improve everything and everyone around them, and who compel you to improve yourself. We’re motivated by the fulfilment of solving hard problems to achieve something profound and transformative.
Your Role
You will be part of the Improbable Multiplayer Group - Games Technical Services, exploring the intersection of gaming, distributed apps and the metaverse. We are looking for someone who is looking to shape the best direction for Improbable to enable its customers to create or integrate blockchain capabilities into their games. You will be working alongside experienced game developers familiar with all aspects of the game development lifecycle. You will be working with notable names from the games industry who are our partners and customers. As this is a new area for us to work in, your work will be directly impacting both the technical and commercial direction of how blockchain games are developed and launched.

  • You are happy working in many parts of the technology stack, from game engines, to backed servers, to smart contract or front end work - whatever is needed to investigate your ideas
While we think the above experience could be important, we’re keen to hear from people that believe they have valuable experience to bring to the role. If you identify with the team and mission, but not all of our requirements, then please still apply. This is a very open ended role, and we are more interested in someone with the right mindset than specific experience.
