Senior Network Engineer (Apex Legends)
Location: Los Angeles, California, United States
Requisition Number: 153354
Position Title: Sr Software Engineer I
Respawn Entertainment is a AAA game development studio that was founded in 2010 by former co-founders of Infinity Ward and creators of the multi-billion dollar Call of Duty and Modern Warfare franchises. We shipped Titanfall and Titanfall 2 to critical acclaim, and recently shipped a free-to-play battle royale game in the Titanfall universe, Apex Legends. We are currently hiring for our Star Wars™, Apex Legends, and Super Secret VR game development teams. The opportunity to create groundbreaking games with some of the best developer talent in the industry awaits our future team members.
We are looking for a highly skilled Senior Network Engineer to join our team to work on our client-server netcode, to help us improve player experience, lower bandwidth, and to work on cool new gameplay features.
What you’ll do...
We want someone who is excited to work on a very complex netcode system – client prediction, client/server architecture, where the server simulation is authoritative and clients aren’t trusted
Develop gameplay features and work with our designers to implement new systems
Work with our Stryder backend to implement features and own the whole feature from front to back – doing the client, the server, and the backend work so you can do the best implementation.
Opportunity to work on other areas that interest you – we don’t pigeonhole here. Gameplay, AI, systems, optimization are all things that coders here split their time between. You will be a coder who is great at netcode, but you are not stuck only doing “networking” tasks.
Help us ship great games with a lean, focused team
Ideally, you will have…
Familiarity with client/server FPS network architecture (Quake3, Tribes, etc.)
Bachelors in Software Engineer, Computer Science, or equivalent
Coding expertise in C/C++
Shipped titles working PS4, XB1, and PC doing network gameplay engineering
Passion for making and playing games.
Shipped AAA game(s) preferred.
If this opportunity sounds like a great fit for you, please submit your resume and we will get back to you once we have reviewed.
