If so, our Associate Programmer role might be the right fit for you!

Currently, we are on the hunt for awesome people who excel at their craft. If you know you’re awesome and want to do cool things at Relic, we want to hear from you!

As our Associate Programmer, here’s some of the stuff you could be doing …

  • Writing code that contributes to Relic’s next games to market
  • Collaborating with other team members to design and architect your code
  • Gaining experience in areas such as Gameplay, AI, Tools, UI, Build, Systems, and Graphics programming
  • Participating in planning, scrums, code and design reviews
  • Working with cross-disciplinary teams, including artists, designers, producers, and animators
  • Being mentored by some of the industry’s best game developers and architects
  • Working at the most recognized RTS games studio in Canada (3 of our games are in PC Gamer’s all-time Top 20 Best Strategy Games)

We’re looking for someone who has…

What’s in it for you? 

You will become part of the SEGA family (includes Creative Assembly, Sports Interactive, Amplitude Studios, and Hardlight Studio) which means you’ll have an opportunity to work on AAA games and learn a ton. If that wasn’t enough, we also offer top-notch benefits and perks, including an extensive extended health benefits plan and retirement savings plan. On top of that, we realize it takes world-class people to make world-class games so we offer competitive total compensation packages.
