We’re Playdead, an independent game company based in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark. We have made two critically acclaimed titles, LIMBO and INSIDE. Our current project is a sci-fi adventure set in a remote corner of the universe.

Job description
We are looking for a Graphics Programmer to build the technology which will drive the aesthetics of our games forward. Your responsibilities will range from writing low-level engine-code for multiple platforms to implementing high-level graphics algorithms and developing the content-creation tools for supporting them. This position is central to ensuring final product quality, regarding performance as well as stability.

What will you be doing?
During production, you will be working closely with artists to identify and implement key features needed to achieve the aesthetic vision of our games. This includes developing new graphics methods, implementing existing ones and improving them.

Towards completion of a game, you will be responsible for the final quality of the game - fixing bugs, profiling and optimising code on all levels.

You will be able to define your own goals and tasks.

Who We Are
We are a team of 45 creative professionals. We experiment and collaborate with a focus on creating new experiences, and as such we are looking for people who can help us achieve them.

Our approach to development does not include crunching towards arbitrary deadlines - instead, we particularly look for talented people who enjoy managing their own schedule and thrive on working within a friendly, collaborative environment.

We love to make carefully crafted games with obsessive attention to detail and are always on the lookout for others who share that passion. Come help us create unique game experiences.
