Show us what the future of multiplayer games looks like. You bring the skills, ideas and ambition, we'll give you the tools, support and technology you need to create the best work of your career in a culture that lives and breathes multiplayer development.
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 fulfillment of solving hard problems to achieve something profound and transformative.
Your Mission 
We believe that the Metaverse experiences of today are far from what players and participants deserve. We believe we can create a better looking virtual world, filled with people, novel experiences and meaningful interactions by leveraging our AAA game development experiences. 
We have already started this journey by holding a ScavLab event with over 4,000 players crowding into a single map to battle, and a Meet and Greet with K-Pop star AleXa attended by over a thousand fans who all got on stage at the same time.
Working with the Technical Director, this is an opportunity to take ownership of the experience and complex/challenging code tasks and deliver world class UI for our Metaversal endeavours.

Areas for Impact:

  • Have heavy involvement in the creation of UI processes, pipelines, and discipline.
  • Give constructive critique on the quality of the UI features within the game.
  • Be an example of discipline within the code team.
  • Improve the overall quality of all UI features on the team by setting an example with their work.
  • Take ownership of complex or challenging code tasks and deliver on time and at high quality.
  • Take ownership of the experience for developers using the UI frameworks created
  • Mentor more junior programmers.

We'd like to hear from you if you embody the following:

  • Master of creating UI Systems and frameworks which are easy to use and data driven
  • Expert in UI technologies, processes and software development.
  • Excellent in self-managing workloads through Jira or another tracking methodology.
  • Excellent in identifying issues and proposing solutions that improve software development process or discipline.
  • 5+ years experience in C++
  • Experience with Unreal Engine 4 and UMG (preferable).
  • Able to create tutorials, guides, or other important documentation for other programmers and non-technical developers using the UI frameworks.
