Forge alternate worlds that deepen players' lives! We're a game development studio based in Los Angeles, dedicated to the idea that online games can deliver deeper, more meaningful experiences. 

Develop game systems for Palia, our upcoming community sim game from Singularity 6, a new AAA game studio founded by veterans across the industry.  We are seeking an experienced Game Engineer to join our cross-discipline team, helping us build and strengthen the connection between our backend platform and all of Palia’s game systems.

This position is open to fully remote candidates.

Expectations and Responsibilities:

You’ll join one of our several cross-functional teams, with other engineers, designers, and artists, developing Palia. You’ll program C++ game systems in Unreal Engine 5. As an engineer at Singularity 6, you’re responsible for developing automated tests, instrumenting telemetry and participating in peer review of your work and the work of your colleagues. During our Alpha & Beta testing phase, you’ll help support our on-call team by diagnosing issues and fixing bugs.

Most of our game engineers are generalists working on anything ranging from gameplay, UE5 engine modifications, performance tuning, to tools and workflow improvements for designers and tech artists. We pride ourselves on our collaborative approach and open feedback environment in which you’ll work closely with designers and others in crafting Palia.

What We're Looking For:

  • You have 3 or more years experience developing and shipping games using a modern game engine. We have a strong preference for engineers with prior experience in Unreal Engine technologies.
  • You have 3 or more years of C++ programming experience. You are comfortable developing and debugging in multithreaded code and multiplayer networked systems.
  • You have a passion for great gameplay. You’re a pragmatic engineer that puts player experience over your own ego and code.
  • You want to learn something new. We’re largely a team of generalists. Your work may take you into systems you’ve not touched before, such as UE5 engine code, netcode, graphics, AI, UI, build systems and beyond.
