About Us...

Crate is an independent PC developer with a current team of 12, led by game industry veterans with over 15 years of experience. We are self-funded through 2020, with no outside investors. We recently released the PC ARPG Grim Dawn, which has sold over 800k copies with a 93% Steam user rating. This is a unique opportunity for someone with a passion for core PC games, to work in a non-traditional, creative environment without the stress and politics typical of larger companies.

Senior Programmer (General / Gameplay)

Crate Entertainment is looking for an enthusiastic and experienced Programmer to work on unannounced titles currently in development. You would be working on one of our two current projects, both in the PC RPG / Strategy genres. Working on a smaller sized team, applicants will have the opportunity to take on different roles, potentially working on gameplay features, tools, performance optimization and whatever else comes up. Work would take place remotely (we have no physical office, though most of the team is in MA) and you would be expected to generally be online and available weekdays during "core" hours but otherwise can set your own schedule.

Required Qualifications
  • 3+ years of professional game development experience as an engineer
  • 3+ years professional experience coding in C++
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Highly self-driven and able to accomplish goals with minimal supervision
  • Passion for games and some background in PC strategy and RPG / ARPG genres
  • Must reside in the United States and be authorized to work

Preferred Qualifications
  • Shipped a title written in C++ or C# for PC or Console
  • Experience programming with C#
  • Prior work in the Unity and / or Unreal engines
  • Experience working in a soul crushing environment (to give you perspective)

Applicants should email a cover letter and resume to: jobs@crateentertainment.com


Senior Programmer (Graphics / Engine)

Crate Entertainment is looking for a talented graphics / engine programmer to work with designers and artists on improving the visuals, performance and engine capabilities of our games. This role would involve working to update Grim Dawn engine technology along with work on other unnanounced strategy / RPG titles for PC and possibly console.

We're looking for someone who has solid technical ability but also the judgement to know what needs improvement, when something looks right and what features make sense for a given game. We probably won't always have a full load of graphics / engine oriented work, so you must also be willing to help out with other general / gameplay coding tasks. Work would take place remotely (we have no physical office, though most of the team is in MA) and you would be expected to generally be online and available weekdays during "core" hours but otherwise can set your own schedule.

Required Qualifications
  • 3+ years of professional game development experience as an engineer
  • 3+ years professional experience coding in C++
  • Extensive knowledge of current graphics and rendering technology
  • Exceptional mathmatical skills
  • Experience with optimization and multi-threading
  • Ability to work within an existing engine and identify appropriate targets for improvement
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Highly self-driven and able to accomplish goals with minimal supervision
  • Passion for games and some background in PC strategy and RPG / ARPG genres
  • Must reside in the United States and be authorized to work

Preferred Qualifications
  • Shipped a title written in C++ or C# for PC or Console
  • Experience programming with C#
  • Prior work in the Unity and / or Unreal engines
  • Experience working in a soul crushing environment (to give you perspective)
  • Live in the New England area
