Engineer

Who We Are:

Studio MDHR is an award-winning independent entertainment studio, and the creators of the whimsical cartoon run & gun game Cuphead.

Location:

We’re a Canadian company, but we’re also a fully distributed team! This means you’ll be working from whatever location makes you most comfortable. For ease of team communication, we are ideally looking for someone based in the Greater Toronto Area.

The Role:

We’re looking for a talented programmer to join the studio. Under the guidance of our Art and Design Directors, you’ll be helping us prototype and build our next major project. Alongside a small team of fellow engineers, you’ll be responsible for solving unique problems that enable Studio MDHR to continue building hand-crafted experiences that surprise and delight people.

As a nimble, remote-work team, we try to avoid bureaucracy and strict hierarchies. This means that from the first commit to the last, you’ll be involved in all major parts of the codebase. As needed, your day-to-day work may also involve contributing to updates, fixes, and other engineering work for our flagship release, Cuphead.

Essential Skills:

• Proficiency in widely used game development frameworks, with a preference toward Unity
• Experience of at least one full game production cycle on a shipped game, with the ability to speak to the full scope of the project
• Meticulous attention to detail, with a dedication to writing clean, performant code
• Confidence working closely with artists and on art implementation during development
• A sense of craftsmanship: you invest love and care into the little details that people may not notice
• Diligent, self-motivated work ethic: as a distributed team, it’s crucial that you manage your time well, and adjust deftly to guidance and direction

Ideal Extras:

• Strong fluency in C# / C++
• A history shipping games on console
• Knowledge of 2D content creation pipelines
• A skillset that includes technical art implementation

Please submit all resumes & portfolios to hello@studiomdhr.com. Due to the high volume of submissions expected, we will only be able to reach out to those with whom we plan to discuss the role further.
