This is a full-time, on-site position in our development studio located in Richardson, Texas (just outside of Dallas).

Our AI programmers bring that combat to life with the development and implementation of industry-leading creature behaviors, pathing and attacks.

We are looking for an experienced AI Programmer to work as part of our development team making AAA games by developing AI and related technology for the game industry’s most advanced engine technology.

You must be able to work closely with individuals in the other development disciplines to create and improve AI gameplay features for rewarding customer experiences.
