Salary Competitive

Leading-edge gaming studio looking for an experienced senior engine developer with pro coding skills and an excellent understanding of MMORPG game design, to join our fast-growing team.

We are developing Ember Sword, a groundbreaking platform-agnostic and Free-to-Play MMORPG Game set in a player-driven fantasy universe, with digital collectible cosmetics and a blockchain-enhanced economy.

It’s a universe where the players control the world through true land ownership. A game in which all valuable cosmetic items are tokenized as scarce non-fungible crypto-collectibles, which are acquired by players through gameplay objectives, instead of sold through loot boxes. With a fan community spanning more than a hundred thousand people, a strong advisory board, a $2M investment round this year, and a very successful first land sale campaign ($1.5M) that sold out in just a few hours, Ember Sword is aiming high and growing fast.

As an engine developer at Bright Star Studios, you'll be working on a custom ECS-based game engine written in C++ using design principles like data-driven design. We care greatly about the quality and performance of our code and don't shy away from refactoring if needed. As an Engine developer, you're responsible for building core engine features such as particle systems, animation systems, audio systems, editor features, etc.

  • You have experience creating game engines in C++

  • Experience with WebGL, WebGPU, and/or Web Assembly (emscripten)

  • You are willing to relocate to Denmark (Aarhus or Copenhagen) or able to convince us that you won't have to.


  • Genuine love for MMOs and/or RPGs

  • Experience in shipping a game on PC/Browser or with a team that did it

  • Experience writing shaders / Unity Shader graph

  • Experience with custom game engines

Your TO DOs

  • Developing and help architecting the engine

  • Building rendering, particle systems, chunk streaming, and editing tools

  • General assignments like (de)serialization of scenes, prefabs, etc.

  • Content streaming and the architecture to achieve this

Practical INFO:
