Software Engineers at Iron Galaxy work on a wide variety of projects, including creating new games from the ground up, co-developing games with partners, and porting existing games to new platforms. Our projects tend to have shorter development cycles; it’s not uncommon for a software engineer to work on more than one project in a year. We’ve found that this helps keep things fresh and provides opportunities to utilize experience gained from previous projects.
As an Associate Engineer at Iron Galaxy, you’ll grow your skills to implement features and systems, debug problems, and tackle new challenges. In addition to your technical skills, our team asks for solid communication work within diverse cross-functional teams. This is an entry-level position. The ideal candidates will have some knowledge of programming within games but we don’t expect you to be a finished product. Responsibilities vary based on the project and your skills/expertise. Here are some examples of what an engineer might be expected to do at Iron Galaxy Studios.
