Employment Type: Permanent
Closing Date: 31 May 2019
Frontier has a new and exciting opportunity for a Principal Network Programmer working on Elite Dangerous, our highly successful AAA title. Elite Dangerous supports a thriving community of active players with regular updates adding new features and content into the game. The future success of the game depends upon an innovative network architecture developed to distribute the simulation, replication and persistence of game state between clients linked in peer-to-peer connections, game servers running islands of related clients, and web services bringing all the players together.
Within a talented and passionate gameplay team you will develop a deep understanding of the network architecture and be the main point of contact for development of features running on the game server. You will help to populate the galaxy with ever more intricate locations, to tell the evolving story of the characters and organisations inhabiting the galaxy, and personalise the experience that each player has exploring new frontiers.
In return we offer a reward package to attract the best including a competitive salary, private healthcare for you and your family, and a range of flexible benefits from which you can select to suit your needs. You’ll share in the success that you help to deliver through a generous company bonus scheme and share scheme participation, including a significant equity grant (through a Long Term Incentive Plan). If required, we can also offer support with re-relocation including a minimum relocation allowance of £5000 (tax free). Check out the benefits section on our website for further details on our total reward package.
Frontier is a studio with a long, successful and varied history of AAA development and this is an exciting time to join us, following our move to self publishing, and the breakout successes of Elite: Dangerous, which the role would be working on, and Planet Coaster. We're expecting Jurassic World: Evolution to continue our story; it's already one of the most anticipated games of 2018. If that sounds interesting, why not contact us for an informal chat or apply on-line?
