Tarsier is on the verge of great things. We'd love to say we're there already, but that would just be lying to sound cool in a job ad. So we're close, but we need more top people to help us get there, and that's what we're looking for right now! We're just about to head out on our next set of adventures, making world-class games with top publishers; all the while pushing the bar of what comes next with our in-house concept team. Tarsier is all about great ideas executed to perfection, and if you want to be part of it, why not see if you fit the bill.

As a Gameplay Programmer at Tarsier, we want you to bring your passion for quality gameplay to our next games. You’ll work in a cross-disciplinary team to develop the team’s ideas into playable mechanics, features and systems and polish them to excellence. You understand what quality gameplay means and can feel what the game wants. At the same time, you want the code base to stay clean, efficient and functional. You like solving problems and experimenting with new ways to make the game better for the players and the work more efficient for the team.

Responsibilities include:

  • Develop high-quality gameplay systems and mechanics in cross-disciplinary teams
  • Actively share your ideas, knowledge and passion for the games we make
  • Participate in code reviews and help ensure a high level of quality in our code bases
  • Adhere to and actively influence best practices and processes
  • Be a positive and professional influence to your team and the company


  • Fluent in C++ 
  • Experience as gameplay and/or generalist programmer 
  • Good knowledge of and experience in Unreal Engine 4
  • Currently in a junior or intermediate programming role on a game development team
  • Able to work well in a multidisciplinary and iterative environment
  • Fluent in English, both verbal and written
  • Willing to relocate to Malmö, Sweden (or commute within the area)

Additional experience:

  • Memory management, CPU & GPU optimization
  • Developed Atmospheric or Action Adventure games
  • Experience working with AI
  • Experience with animation programming
  • Other game engine experience
  • Experience with additional middleware systems
  • Shipped games for PC or current generation consoles

What we offer

At Tarsier Studios, we believe in quality above all else; but quality is the residue of care, and most of all, care for people. So our great perks, like 6 weeks vacation, flexible working hours, company-paid supplemental pension and sick leave insurance, additional health allowance and a relocation package, are not there just to make people happy, but to ensure we reach the highest quality bar possible. Making great games means demanding a lot from people, but that doesn't mean we can’t take good care of them while we do so. That is the Tarsier way and what we offer to all our colleagues.

Thank You
