Senior/Lead Programmer

The goal at XR Games is to be the best developer of VR titles in the world. 


Due to the success and critical acclaim of our previous projects such as Zombieland: Headshot Fever and Angry Birds Under Pressure our team is now working on numerous major projects with recognisable IP’s throughout 2022 and 2023.


Having won ‘Best small studio’ at the 2021 TIGA awards our team is growing in all areas of game development as we transition from a small start-up studio to an established multi-disciplined games studio specialising in full-scale immersive extended reality games. Led by a team with big game experience at studios such as Rockstar, EA, Codemasters, Playground, Dubit and Sumo we have created games for some of the world’s biggest brands such as Sony, Rovio, Dreamworks and Lego.


The Role

We’re now looking for an experienced programmer who can play a lead role on our projects. 


The right person for this role will already be in a senior/lead position in a AAA games environment. You will be able to operate as more of a generalist programmer but solid gameplay experience will be beneficial as well as being able to show strong leadership abilities. 


You must be able to take initiative and make decisions about technical approaches as well as being able to mentor and help other developers.


Core Skills

  • Vast professional experience with Unity and multiplatform development


  • Deep understanding of C#


  • Shipped at least two titles and 5+ years game industry experience


  • Project lead experience


  • Clean and robust programming


  • Experience with Git and other version control systems


  • Creative attitude to problem-solving


  • Ability to work as part of a team and take an initiative


  • Exceptional verbal and written communications skills



Our studio is based in Leeds with a hybrid-working setup as standard. We do accommodate fully remote team members if we need to and will assist financially with relocation for those looking to do so.
