Full-time Lead AI Programmer

at Moon Collider Ltd in Edinburgh

Moon Collider Is Hiring

Moon Collider is the developer of Kythera, the middleware best known for providing the AI behind Star Citizen, the record-breaking crowd-funded space combat sim.

We have technical positions available in Edinburgh for talented, experienced individuals who can help us grow and take on new challenges. International candidates are welcome.

Moon Collider began development on our Kythera AI middleware in early 2013, having previously engaged in AI consultancy since 2010. Our product has been based on partnership and practical application from the very start, and you can see some of our results in our case studies. We are now a small, highly focused team of 5. We have greater ambitions for Kythera and business opportunities available to support them, but we need your help to fulfill them.

Day-to-day, we work as a core AI technology group might work within a major publisher, serving multiple teams on different projects with a common AI codebase. However, since we are an independent company, we are able to choose our partners and to place their requirements within our own roadmap, building towards a better product and truly innovative AI.

We currently work on FPS, spaceship combat, hack’n’slash and ambient character behaviours, with industry leaders like Star Citizen and small indie teams, on multiple games engines and platforms. We are looking at cutting-edge new platforms and technology that could be our future.

We think there’s no better place to develop AI.

Lead AI Programmer

Lead our growing team of talented and professional AI programmers as we develop Kythera towards our ambitious vision and apply it to our partners’ exciting titles.

You and your team will work directly with our partners to understand their requirements, design and build the core Kythera functionality required, and use it to develop the behavior and tools each project requires – or help our partners do so themselves.

As part of your duties you will work directly with the lead architect to deliver the best possible functionality, developer experience and API within engineering constraints. You will be supported by the directors, who you will work with as a peer.

We are a small team taking on big challenges with industry-leading partners, but we keep ourselves grounded in reality. We believe in making promises we are confident we can deliver. We offer every member of the team great trust, responsibility and transparency.

Act as a guiding hand for the engineering decisions made on our product, help our team to grow and help us build a great company.

Responsibilities:

  • Design core systems in collaboration with the lead architect
  • Understand our partners’ requirements and take responsibility for delivering them
  • Implement core systems for Kythera
  • Communicate directly with clients by email, Skype and occasionally on-site
  • Manage the team’s tasks in performing all of the above with you
  • Mentor team members and share your experience
  • Review code and provide technical direction to the team
  • Manage and build relationships with industry partners
  • Advise the company directors on technical considerations in business direction
  • Recruit, interview and hire new team members with support from the directors

Requirements:

  • At least 6 years’ experience of commercial games development
  • At least 1 year’s experience leading a development team
  • 2 shipped titles, including one AAA or equivalent
  • Good degree in a related subject, e.g. Computer Science, Mathematics or Physics (equivalent to or better than a 2:1 Honours in the UK)
  • Excellent C++
  • Excellent understanding of the challenges in modern game AI
  • Excellent knowledge of modern hardware and software architectures and trends
  • Excellent written and spoken English language skills
  • Experience with Unreal and Unity an advantage

Details:

  • Full-time permanent role based in Edinburgh, Scotland
  • Start date flexible but must be by April 2015
  • Relocation allowance and visa assistance
  • Applications close 5th December 2014

At Moon Collider we expect to pay a good salary to attract more experienced developers. Money isn’t everything, but we know it matters.

For candidates from abroad, ask us for information on living costs, taxes and health services in Edinburgh and the UK.
