Full-time 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.

AI Programmer

Join our small, growing team of talented and professional AI programmers. We need experienced AI developers who recognise the common threads in each client’s challenges, and help us build solutions that advance our product, not just the case in hand. Help us develop Kythera towards our ambitions and apply it in our partners’ exciting titles.

You will create both high-level behaviours for our clients, and systems within Kythera to support them. You will work flexibly with the rest of the team and directly with developers at our clients’ studios, writing code for the core Kythera environment, and the AI and game code specific to each project. Clients often look to us to help on behaviour design, so your creative input will be needed too.

We expect a great deal of initiative from each team member, as well as professionalism in working directly with our clients’ own developers. In return, we offer every member of the team great trust, responsibility and transparency. You will help achieve industry-leading results in AI, as well as help define direction for our product. We will make sure you have everything you need to do that, and to pursue your own direction too.

Responsibilities:

  • Design and build high-level behaviour for and with our clients
  • Design and build the base functionality required within Kythera
  • Communicate directly with clients via email, Skype and occasionally on-site
  • Support clients through bug fixing and game code customisation

Requirements:

  • At least 4 years’ experience of commercial games development
  • 1 shipped AAA title or equivalent
  • Significant experience related to AI
  • 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
  • Good knowledge of modern hardware and software architectures and trends
  • Experience with Unreal and Unity an advantage

Details:

  • Full-time permanent role based in Edinburgh, Scotland
  • Start date flexible, early 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.
