Senior Game Engineer

Imbellus Overview

We are looking for exceptional people who share our mission: to reinvent how we measure human potential. At Imbellus, we build technology-enabled assessments that evaluate how people think instead of what they know.  We believe our society must prioritize developing minds that do what computers cannot. By changing assessments, we reorient the education system and employers to measure what matters.  

We love this challenge. We know that what has worked for decades in other contexts, might not work in ours. So we don’t default on expertise, instead we test every assumption with logic, each idea with reasoning, and all conclusions with “prove it.” We choose learning over ego so that our product and our people become the best.

You’ll probably enjoy working with us if

  • You’re a systems thinker; you’d rather debate the concept than argue the example; you prize logic and reason
  • You’re restless when not learning something new or stretching yourself
  • You understand that at a fast-growing startup, priorities may shift rapidly. You value exposure across functions and are prepared to work on whichever team or goal is most impactful.
  • You’re willing to open-mindedly challenge your own and others’ ideas, but also commit to the ultimate direction when the time comes
  • You feel accountable and hold others to a high standard

We’re looking for a Senior Game Engineer

As an Imbellus Senior Game Engineer, you will envision how to translate feature designs into gameplay mechanics, and delight players with engaging moments. You will prototype and discover new solutions for complex systemic challenges, and orchestrate the game to ensure a flow state for the player. You will collaborate with engineers, designers, artists and learning scientists to apply playtest feedback and polish gameplay interactions to result in a high-quality user experience and effective assessment.

What you’ll be doing at Imbellus:

  • Create, refine and polish complex and varied gameplay systems

  • Prototype alongside the Game Designer to determine optimal strategies for creating a user experience that exceeds our players expectations

  • Help develop art pipeline tools that streamline our artists' processes and simplify building an awe-inspiring virtual world

  • Support the UI Designer in implementation, functionality, and feature integration

  • Document and peer review technical designs with engineering team

  • Innovate on technical challenges using state of the art engineering methods to automate development processes

What you’ll need to succeed at Imbellus:

  • 10+ years of software development experience overall
  • 5+ years working in the game industry
  • Expertise across multiple languages including Python, C++, and JavaScript
  • 1+ years experience with Unity a plus
  • Simulation experience a plus
