Klang is a game studio exploring the future of humanity through various forms of media. We aim to present deep, meaningful subjects in a way that's captivating, easy-to-digest and entertaining for all ages. 

At the heart of Klang is Seed, a large-scale, persistent virtual world that we believe will redefine the MMO landscape and have a positive impact on our species.

We aspire to bring people together through engaging media experiences and by building strong communities.

It's a super exciting project, but in order for us to achieve a goal like this we are going to need a lot of help! From people just like you. 

About the position

Klang is looking for a Senior Game Engineer (f/m/d) who enjoys a collaborative and creative work environment to join us in one of the most exciting cities on the planet!

What you will do

  • Contribute to the design and development of an ambitious MMO project, built on a foundation of distributed systems and ECS architecture.
  • Work on solving interesting technical problems across the game’s C# codebase, from the game client through AI systems to server-side code.
  • Build user interfaces using EvolveUI, a modern and high-performance UI framework for game development.
  • Collaborate with fellow Klangers across several disciplines, including engineering, game design, UI/UX design, and art.

Who we think will be a great fit

  • 5+ years of professional programming experience with C#, C++, or Java.
  • Professional experience with a modern game engine and/or backend. Unity experience is a plus.
  • Understanding and navigating complex systems, both in the form of code and game designs.
  • Identifying and resolving technical and design challenges.
  • Writing performant code, based on a solid foundational knowledge of memory management and algorithmic complexity.

Bonus

  • Developing large-scale online multiplayer games, ideally from concept to release.
  • Working with ECS architectures (Unity DOTS or equivalent).
  • Implementing and consuming network APIs (REST, gRPC, etc.)
  • Working with distributed systems, especially actor frameworks (Akka, Orleans, etc.)
  • Ensuring the stability and reliability of the game, and taking ownership of operational responsibilities instead of deferring them to the platform teams.
  • Experience with modern web UI frameworks (makes it easier to learn EvolveUI).

Benefits

  • An opportunity to work on a groundbreaking project with a lot of room for professional and personal development
  • Reimbursement for physical health activities
  • Employee Assistance Program, including mental health support, legal advice as well as support finding doctor’s appointments

  • Competitive salary and 23 days of paid vacation
  • Reduced working hours during the month of August
  • Private healthcare
  • Paid trips to Berlin to attend team events and meet the team
