About Splash Damage 
 

Come join us!  


We founded Splash Damage with a mission to create lifelong friendships for our players and our employees by building the world’s most engaging multiplayer experiences with world-leading partners. Our teams have just celebrated the launch of Gears Tactics and we’re currently working on several exciting unannounced titles.

 

Our people always come first, and we acted swiftly to ensure that we moved all our employees to a work from home model during the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, and this will continue for the foreseeable future. With our first-class virtual onboarding programme, we’re able to get you up and running from your home during this time and we’re maintaining our relaxed and welcoming culture with digital social events, daily company communications and much more. We will continue to monitor the situation in line with government advice, but we will expect you to come and work with us in our friendly studio in Bromley as and when it’s safe to do so.

 

We're advocates for work-life balance and offer flexible working arrangements to suit individual needs and a comprehensive benefits package which focuses on family and mental well-being. Together with this we’ve been running a formal Equality, Diversity and Inclusion programme for nearly two years and are committed to increasing diversity across our studio.



The role:

UI Programmers at Splash Damage closely work with UI design to turn their vision for the UI into a functional in-game user experience.

Accountable for the implementation of UI features, UI Programmers work with the team in planning and estimating their own work to align with specifications and project milestones. UI programmers can analyse a UI design and identify the individual components required to build a user interface; they interact with other development disciplines to create code architectures that draw from the collective knowledge of the team to implement robust and performant data-driven user interfaces.

Our UI programmers are afforded a high degree of autonomy, we trust that they know best how to complete their work. They enjoy working as part of a team in a friendly and collaborative atmosphere where they have the freedom to build their technical knowledge and relish a technical challenge. UI programmers are always learning, seek to acquire and share knowledge with the wider company and beyond.

We believe that leveling up our skills is an essential part of the job and offer regular training opportunities and mentorship to all our programmers.

You have:

  • Knowledge of C++, with relevant professional experience.
  • Practical UI implementation pipeline knowledge; you have worked with UI Design teams to craft creative solutions to technical limitations. 
  • A can-do attitude and strong interpersonal skills; you love collaborating with others to implement systems.
  • Solid time management and organisational skills; you can get the job done without close supervision.
  • Good communication and presentation skills; you’re able to present ideas clearly and confidently to audiences of all experience levels.
  • A desire to learn and grow within your role.
  • A real passion for UI and clear enthusiasm for playing games.

Bonus points for:
  • Experience with accommodating player accessibility needs.
  • Experience with Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) and Unreal Motion Graphics (UMG).
  • Multi-platform and console development experience.
  • Familiarity with Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.


Splash Damage is an equal opportunity employer. We believe our teams create better work when they have a range of perspectives to draw from, and we are committed to creating an inclusive working environment that celebrates diversity.
