At Visual Concepts, we believe great games are made by diverse and empowered teams with a shared passion for play. As one of the world’s top game development studios, we have shipped over 100 multi-sku titles to critical acclaim and commercial success. Our teams are independent and entrepreneurial. Our studios in Agoura Hills, Novato, Orange County, Budapest, Shanghai, Austin, San Jose, Vancouver and Seoul are committed to artistry and technical innovation, offering top candidates the opportunity to learn and grow with some of the smartest and most creative minds in the industry.

 

What We Need:

We are seeking Software Engineers, especially recent graduates, to join our outstanding, full-time, Bullpen Engineering Department supporting the NBA Dev Team at Visual Concepts!

 

About the NBA Bullpen:

The Bullpen offers early career and new grad Engineers the opportunity to grow, both personally and expertly, through mentorship and a variety of project-based assignments. BullPen Engineers will benefit from a combination of research and extended onboarding time, as well as on-the-job work experience. You will rotate through projects from several teams to gain a breadth of experience & exposure to help you discover your strengths and passion.  BullPen Engineers will ultimately transition into a non-rotating role within Visual Concepts when interests and team needs make a match.

This is a unique and rewarding opportunity to use your AI, gameplay, tools creation, graphics, or other skills to transfer your ideas into solutions for some of the most challenging technical problems in the next generation of NBA2K. At Visual Concepts, new ideas have a way of quickly becoming extraordinary features, technological advances, and gameplay experiences. Bring passion and dedication to your job, and there's no telling what you could accomplish. We look forward to welcoming new ambitious team members into the BullPen Engineering Department at Visual Concepts!

 

What You Will Do:

  • Work with passionate engineers and producers creating the features, logic, and progression systems that drive NBA 2K’s gamemodes
  • Create, improve, and work with tools that make the development process easier and more fun
  • Learn how to represent the player at all times when delivering satisfying, polished, and extensible game features
  • Participate in the design process every step of the way, as you work with your colleagues to make every contribution your own, and get your voice heard
  • Work in a team that values quality over quantity, with strict schedules to finalize features and allow time for testing and polishing
  • Produce code that is clean, efficient, well-documented, and conforms to our coding standards

 

Who Will Be a Great Fit:

  • High proficiency in C / C++

  • Able to diagnose and solve problems quickly and independently
  • Able to learn and master complicated code systems
