The Center for Game Science at the University of Washington is seeking software engineers to help develop the next generation of serious games for scientific discovery, learning, software verification, and more. The Center for Game Science builds innovative games that produce real results in key problems facing humanity. We have created games that are affecting change in medicine through protein folding (FoldIt), K-12 education practices (Refraction, Treefrog Treasure) and formal verification of software (Pipe Jam). This is a temporary 9 month appointment. As a software engineer at the Center for Game Science, you will be a part of a dynamic team responsible for designing and implementing everything that makes these games possible. This may include the gameplay mechanics, AI, physics, level editors, logging databases, optimizers, test cases, telemetry instrumentation, analytics visualization and other game-related systems. You will work in small teams with the design leads, researchers, domain experts (scientists and educators), artists, and other software developers. The computer engineer filling this position will take on primary ownership of a game's architecture, development, iteration, testing, user testing, and maintenance. The engineer must understand the different goals and culture of both the academic research environment and development of widely popular games.
