Gameplay Programmer & More needed for ARK: Survival Evolved!


Studio Wildcard are currently on the hunt for a Gameplay Programmer and more to work on ARK: Survival Evolved, and the competitive game mode, Survival of the Fittest. Here’s some footage of the game if you haven’t had the chance to see it yet:

Required Skills:

At least 4 years programming with C++, and at least 1 year programming with Unreal Engine 4 specifically. In addition to resume, we’ll need to see C++ code samples, and links to demos of projects you’ve programmed. As a gameplay programmer, we look for people who have a really good ‘design sensibility’ and ‘attention to detail’ for polishing gameplay mechanics creatively, not just raw coding skill. We like our programmers to be creative designers as well :wink:

ARK: Survival Evolved takes on the survival genre with a unique blend of emergent multiplayer cooperation and competition. Players must hunt, harvest, craft, research technology, and build shelters to protect against punishing climate conditions, dangerous wildlife, and potential enemies. Tame and ride one of nearly 100 prehistoric beasts, including gargantuan creatures on a scale never before seen in video games! Fly a Pteranodon squadron over the snow-capped mountains, race through the deep jungle with a pack of trained Raptors, tromp through a fortified enemy base along a convoy of gigantic Brontosaurus, or chase down prey on the back of a raging T-Rex.

ARK: Survival Evolved is available on Steam Early Access, Xbox One via the ID@Xbox program, and will launch in June 2016 on PlayStation®4 with Project Morpheus support, Xbox One, and Steam, including VR support and a thorough integration of Steam community features such as Steam Economy and Steam Workshop.


Studio Wildcard was co-founded in 2014 by Jesse Rapczak, former Technical Art Director at Microsoft Game Studios, with the mission of bringing AAA quality to ambitious indie productions designed for core gamers. With 12 years of industry experience across multiple independent and studio-backed titles, Jesse has teamed up with other veteran developers for a Seattle-based development studio that also includes distributed team members across multiple continents. Wherever talented, driven developers may reside, Studio Wildcard intends to seek out and work with them!
