UE4 Multiplayer Developer
Arcane Ermine is a small independently funded startup studio based in Reno, NV that is exploring what happens when game professionals, not accountants, run a company. We aim to provide a crunch free environment full of all of the equipment, tools, and perks that the employees want or need. This is your opportunity to be part of a team where you can actually have a voice in the direction of the company.
The goal of our company is to make the games we would like to play with as little compromise as possible. Arcane Ermine is a rarity among startup indie studios in the sense that we pay our employees a salary and do not take contracts for working on other company’s games. Every bit of work you do, will be on a creation of the game studio.
If you’re the type of person that enjoys the startup lifestyle, and want to help shape the future of the company you work for, we look forward to your application!
We’re looking for someone located in or near Reno, NV. Our studio has “core hours” where employees are expected to be in the office on a few specific days during the week. Outside of core hours, employees can opt to work remote, or from the office. As long as you get your work done on time, expect tons of leeway and flexibility in your schedule! Arcane Ermine offers premium health, dental, and vision insurance paid 100% by us. We plan on adding more perks as the team grows, like 401k (with matching) and paid lunches. Partial relocation assistance may be available if you are not currently local.
