Job Position:

Join Big Ant Studios as a UI/UX Game Programmer and be part of making some of console and mobiles’ biggest sports titles from our centrally located Melbourne studio. Must have solid XAML/WPF skills.

You will be working on cutting-edge engine technology, building user interfaces that complement the gameplay visuals and experience. You will work within a small, collaborative team where you will have the opportunity to help shape the UI of our future titles.

As a studio, we use an in-house C++/Lua Engine, and have recently integrated Noesis GUI for our UI layer, and are looking for a competent UI developer with proven experience using Xaml/WPF. The successful applicant will need to be able to work both autonomously and in a group environment.

Noesis is a middleware built to replicate WPF within a cross-platform C++ environment. This means that some WPF functionality is limited and due to the nature of game development will also require a lot of unique controls to be engineered. 

This role will require you to work alongside the WPF developers to get their views working in Noesis. It will also require you to maintain and update our implementation of Noesis in our engines. Extensive WPF experience is not mandatory but an understanding of it will be very beneficial in order to understand the conversion requirements and to troubleshoot issues.

About you

  • Min 2 years UI/UX development experience
  • Version control - git/svn

Bonus points

  • Xaml, WPF, Blend experience
