Senior Online Programmer - Permanent

OVERVIEW

At PlayStation London Studio, we are on a mission to make award-winning, landmark games. Our upcoming PlayStation 5 online multiplayer game will be focused on a brand-new IP we are extraordinarily excited about.

Our new game is close to our hearts, as the whole team collaborated on coming up with the concept from the very beginning. We’ve seen this idea grow from a seed, and now we’re looking for new starters to continue our journey on shaping our plans for this AAA project.

We’re also a part of the PlayStation Studios family, a collective of teams - from Insomniac to Naughty Dog and many more. As such, we have solid support system – often knowledge sharing industry advancements so that all our studios, individually lead the way to create memorable gaming experiences.

As a Senior Online Programmer, you will be responsible for working together with multiple disciplines within our proprietary engine and game teams, to cooperate on the development of the online features required for our next big title. These features could include networked physics and animation systems, game logic, match making and session management, among others.

Scope of Work

Experience / Knowledge

Desirable Experience

Impact

You'll be working on one of the core systems in our engine and as such your work will have a huge impact on the whole game and team. The ambition behind this title will be driven by the capabilities of our network layer and this role gives you the opportunity to not only bring that ambition to life, but also challenge the expectations of our Design and Gameplay teams into something that really stands out as a next gen PlayStation Studios game.

Complexity

This is a Senior level role and as such you will have experience working collaboratively in a team and building systems from scratch, whilst also helping to set the standard for online systems.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We encourage you to bring your best-unaltered self to work. Inclusivity is one of our studio values, which means we embrace different perspectives to fuel our creativity and we know that our games are stronger for it!

It is important to us that our teams are passionate about diversity and inclusion. They must understand that these words speak to people’s lived experiences that may differ to their own. We encourage our teams to educate themselves and show support and their commitment to DE&I (diversity, equity, and inclusion). As an example, some of our outreach activities include giving talks, mentoring, speaking at schools, running roundtables and much more.

We therefore welcome applications from all groups who are underrepresented in the games industry. We can offer training to upskill our team, so if you don’t feel you meet 100% of the job criteria, we still strongly encourage you to apply and look forward to hearing from you.
