Graphics Programmer plays a key role in creating and implementing visually appealing and efficient graphics systems to constantly improve the quality and performance of our mobile games, ensuring players have an unforgettable gaming experience. In practice, this means (at least) the following:

  • Collaborating with artists, designers, technical artists and other programmers to identify visual requirements and implement them in the game engine
    • Understanding and contributing to the feature design from a rendering and performance point of view

    • Working with the technical team to help write performant code

    • Driving visual development further with the use of new technologies and shader development

  • Developing and maintaining rendering pipelines and shader systems optimized for mobile platforms

  • Enhancing the visual quality of the game by contributing to shader development, 3d rendering, particle effects and post-processing

  • Debugging profile graphics and client code to identify and resolve performance bottlenecks

  • Staying updated with the latest mobile graphics technologies and unity development, and recommending best practices to improve visual quality and performance

Every role is eventually shaped to match our unique passions, backgrounds and strengths. Here are some of the key skills and experience you should already have when joining Metacore as a Graphics Programmer:

  • A strong understanding of Unity as a game engine when it comes to rendering and performance

  • Extensive experience in C# to implement optimization and guide other programmers to create performant code

  • Practical know-how of rendering on mobile platforms and ability to write shaders

  • Knowledge of Android and iOS platforms, including their potential for creativity and innovation, as well as their limitations

  • Good communication skills – you can easily converse with different domains to grasp their needs and processes related to artistic, design and technical requirements

  • Great problem-solving skills topped with a genuine interest to work in a collaborative team environment

In addition to these, it would be nice but not mandatory for you to know these as well:
