Job Description

In this volunteer position you will be managing and coordinating the C++ Programming Department at Epoch Games, as well as assisting with interviewing new potential Programmers. You must be able to spare a fair amount of hours to be online to communicate with the Programming Team on a regular basis. Keep in mind that The Lays of Althas: Sundered Order (LoA:SO) is being developed in Epic Game’s Unreal Engine 4 (UE4); moderate knowledge of how C++ code interacts with UE4 is required.

The ability to communicate and organize other Programmers is another key skill required in this position. It is key to a smooth and efficient pipeline, you must be able to communicate clearly and effectively with other team-members outside of the department, such as our Artists, Animators, Game Designers (Blueprint Scripters), Level Designers and Writers. We are an English-speaking team, so English fluency is a must.

Other duties include: attending Slack meetings (Slack is an instant messaging we communicate with), reporting the progress of the Programming team on a weekly basis and following team policies.

This is a volunteer position, so no monetary compensation is being offered.

At this time, we are having to rely upon free (or previously licensed) software. Please refer to the applications listed below for guidelines. We do not endorse piracy.
