Game AI Programmer - UE4

Job Position

AI Programmer - Unreal Engine 4


Digital Lode is an immersive media company located in the Docklands Cotton Mills, Footscray. We are a team of VR evangelists working on a variety of real time-rendered VR projects for all platforms, with a focus on standalone consumer VR.

Digital Lode’s primary focus is our original "Espire VR” franchise. Espire 1: VR Operative released in November 2019 and is a single player VR experience with a focus on stealth, espionage and action. It’s a consistent top seller on the Oculus Quest storefront, and we want to take that success to the next level.

We are expanding our team and have a position open for an AI Programmer. We are looking for someone with a keen interest in Stealth AI to take ownership of the AI programming, and create a system to put us in the big leagues of stealth action games.


Using Unreal or Unity, you’ve spent several years crafting consistent and believable AI enemies in games from lowly cannon fodder to dastardly world bosses. You’re a great problem solver, great coder, and understand that games are a team endeavour and are happy to collaborate and share ideas, solutions and code with other team members.

What you’ll be doing:

Creating coding solutions that are well optimized and platform-agnostic, building our new AI system in UE4 using our existing implementation as a base. You’ll be refining existing enemy classes, building new enemy classes, and crafting compelling boss AI for single and multiplayer missions.

Include a cover letter, your CV and link to an up-to-date folio with examples of your work.
