The goal at XR Games is to be the best developer of VR titles in the world.

Founded in 2017, XR Games is a multi award-winning virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) game development studio with over 100 members of staff. We make games that provide 3D virtual experiences for players to navigate, explore, and have fun in.

We work closely with Sony Pictures to bring movie licences to life in VR as well as working with the world’s largest publishers and hardware manufacturers such as Meta, PlayStation, Microsoft, and more!

Following the success and critical acclaim of projects such as Zombieland: Headshot Fever, we are now working on multiple high-profile projects with recognisable IP’s & licences as we continue to grow and invest in our future.

The Role

We are looking for a Lead Programmer to assume overall responsibility for a brand new project. Reporting to the Head of Programming you will be responsible for growing and managing a team of programmers as well as being a key point of contact for the client.

Your Accountabilities

Are you the right person?

The right person for this role will already have significant experience in a lead role and will have shipped multiple projects in a lead programer capacity. Your experience should mostly be working on projects with a C++ / Unreal Engine tech stack and you should be able to demonstrate your team leadership/management capabilities.

Our Values - Creative / Reliable / Problem Solver / Collaborative / Positive / Authentic

Our culture values are the DNA of what makes a good XR Games Employee. Throughout the interview process our team will be seeking evidence of these values in your personality, behaviour & experiences and will be taken into account alongside your work experience, skills and knowledge when it comes to hiring decisions.

Core Competencies:

At XR Games hybrid & flexible working is standard, we have a blended team who could be based in our Leeds HQ or remote around the world depending on the role. For this role to be successful, we will require the person to have a regular presence in the studio and therefore being 100% remote is not a possibility. We can and will assist financially with relocation for those looking to do so as well as sponsoring visas too.

Have you made it this far?

If you’re still reading, we think there’s a strong chance you might be our kind of person.

Here’s the thing, though — research suggests that 60% of women and underrepresented folks might have already talked themselves out of applying. Even if you don’t check every box above, we want to encourage you to introduce yourself.

We believe a diversity of perspectives and experiences makes a team stronger — and the stronger our team, the closer we are to developing the best VR games possible.
