Are you a proactive Game Programmer with special expertise and interest in tools and technology?

And with a strong professional background in game development, including Unity and C#?

If yes, you could be our Game Programmer (Tools & Tech)

As a Game Programmer specialised in tools and tech at Metacore, you can freely define the best way for developing our tools and technologies – as long as it respects our company culture and helps our game teams become more productive. That calls for a highly proactive approach to handle tasks from developing new tools and 3rd party plugins to troubleshooting possible performance issues.

About Metacore

Metacore is formed by small game teams, each deciding which games to build, when to ship them, and when to pivot or kill them. As a company, we’re relatively small too. Our headcount is currently 30+, and probably 40+ by the end of this year.

Metacore as a company

Working at Metacore

Metacore is the game company where players are the closest thing to a boss. That gives a lot of independence and responsibility to our game teams and individuals. Together, we work as Metacore – not for or at Metacore. These six points should give you a good hunch of what that means in practise.
