About Relic Entertainment

We are an award-winning developer of genre-defining real-time strategy games like Homeworld, Dawn of War, Company of Heroes and many more. Throughout our storied 17-year history, delivering rich, thoughtful strategy games has always been our defining quality.

In essence, we envision the type of games that we would love to play, and then we create them.

Our studio is different from most others. We value ideas and innovation so every game we create is a true reflection of our entire teams’ capabilities. We believe in the autonomous, entrepreneurial spirit of an indie developer – only with the extensive resources of a large publisher.

We are owned by SEGA, a world leader in interactive entertainment. They provide us with the autonomy and creative control needed to preserve the integrity of the gaming experience, from the concept stage right through to final development. Being part of the SEGA family also gives us access to resources and talent that will help us build on our legacy of innovation.

Position

As an integral part of our development team, you will have an opportunity to lead the analysis, design, direction and implementation of Artificial Intelligence systems for Age of Empires IV (yes, the next game in this legendary franchise!)

As our Senior AI Programmer you will also:

  • Research and develop cutting edge real time strategy game AI at multiple levels including, squad, session objective, and campaign
  • Analyze new game features, and design AI systems to utilize them
  • Develop, set and enforce AI development best practices
  • Optimize existing AI functionality to meet CPU and memory performance budgets
  • Plan AI development and set the technical vision for multiple titles
  • Maintain and update tools for AI debugging and development

Your qualification

  • 5+ years’ experience in AI for games
  • Has shipped cutting edge AAA for multiple AAA or console titles
  • A Computer Science or Engineering degree
  • Strong knowledge of C++
  • Knowledge of C#, Lua, Java, ActionScript 3
  • A positive attitude and a sense of humor
  • A love for games!

Will be a plus

  • Interest in math and linear algebra
  • A website or github account with samples of your code

What we offer

You will become part of the SEGA family (includes Creative Assembly, Sports Interactive, and Hardlight Studio) which means you’ll have an opportunity to work on AAA games and learn a ton. We also offer top-notch benefits and perks, including an extensive extended health benefits plan, retirement savings plan, and support for any required relocation or immigration efforts. On top of that, we realize it takes world-class people to make world-class games so we offer competitive total compensation packages.
