Sharkmob's crew has high ambitions, so we value smart decisions, creativity and passion for the craft. If you consider yourself to be a skilled programmer that thrives in close collaborations with others - then we might be the next challenge you're looking for.
Why is this a great time to join Sharkmob?
"The projects will face a lot of interesting challenges when it comes to world building, pipelines, streaming and performance - I can't wait to take them on!" - Johan Bernhardsson, Lead Programmer on our second project.
We are working with UE5, but while it is a feature-rich and established engine, our games require something more.

Desired experience and skills:
- Game engine or renderer development experience.
- Great C++ programmer.
- A good understanding of how to design, implement, and work in a feature rich game engine.
- An understanding of how to safely and efficiently run tasks concurrently.
- Driven by supporting the whole team and disciplines.
- A true collaborative spirit - who ensures smooth and efficient communication between disciplines.
- Experience working with Unreal Engine 4 and 5.
- Experience from PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X development.
- Deep understanding of concurrency and how to optimize it, both on the CPU and GPU.
- Knowledgeable of how modern rendering pipelines and techniques work.
