Job Overview

My client is looking for a Programmer to help improve their content pipeline, ensuring a smooth flow from the hands of the developers, through various build servers and optimization steps, into the final game.

The pipeline itself is an integral part of the game engine, written in C++, while some of the surrounding tools are made in C#. All are maintained and developed by the tools team, which takes input from all disciplines (art, design & coding) to help streamline the entire game creation process, always trying to increase productivity and creative freedom.
