Greater Sudbury, ON

Full-time, Permanent

Salary: $50,000.00 to $90,000.00 /year

 

Applicants MUST be able to legally work in Canada.

 

Mafic Studios, Inc. is looking for a motivated self starter, with game development, with a familiarity with Unreal Engine. While we have a preference for on-site workers, we are willing to consider strong applicants who prefer to work remote under certain conditions. It will, however, be necessary to spend several weeks out of the year (on a schedule to be determined), in Sudbury, Ontario, in direct contact with the team.

 

Our approach to work is flexible. What we care about is that the work gets done, and the client receives a world class product on time. At the same time, we are keen on building a passionate and integrated team who are willing to become part of an industry changing platform, and put the necessary work in to achieve that end. We want to enable our people with the tools and resources necessary to do better work than they have ever done before, and create a whole that everyone can be proud of.

 

We are located in Sudbury, Ontario, about a three and a half hour drive (40 minute flight) north of Toronto. While Sudbury is known as the mining capital of Canada, we are also blessed with countless acres of lakes and forest, ideal for anyone looking to get away from the bustle of Southern Ontario, yet still be in striking distance. For the cost of a condo in Toronto, you could easily find yourself with a beautiful house on the lake, or acreage, as it suits you.

 

The successful candidate will be part of the development of a new platform based on the Unreal Engine for VR. The ideal candidate will have experience developing games, experience working with 3D assets and game engines, UE4 specifically. Experience with blueprint strongly desired, working with C++, and have a general understanding of all aspects of game development. Experience developing VR applications is a plus.

 

We are looking for individuals willing to work in a funded startup, creating new tools to change the way business and industry work.
