Senior programmer Role Description
Our current dev team consists of thirteen people, the team is experienced and have worked together for a long time. We’re looking for a down to earth, nice person to join our team. The programmers in our group work tightly together, in an open and honest environment where everyone understands that creating bugs, resolving them and learning from that is all a part of being a programmer.
As an ideal candidate, you enjoy managing your own time and tasks. You enjoy programming with high variety in your work tasks and as a senior you are expected to take on large and complex parts of the game. As we are a small-ish studio, you will be expected to be able to work with people across all disciplines within game development.
We are looking for someone who has worked at least 5 years in the games industry. You are used to working in an agile environment with projects from the early stages of development and through the life cycle until release. We are currently working in Unreal Engine 4, which means you will be working mostly in C++. A solid understanding of C++ is a must and you should be comfortable with online multiplayer. Any experience with Unreal Engine 4, mobile or console development is a big plus, but not a requirement.
About Coffee Stain North
We are still a small-ish studio, and we’d like to stay that way. The games we make are the games we want to play. We strongly believe in staying independent so that we can continue on our own path. We like to work in smaller, more focused teams where everyone matters. Micromanaging is not our style, so everyone needs to take responsibility over their own work.
Coffee Stain North is located in Stockholm, Sweden, one of the most gamer-centric cities in the country.
We believe diversity is a good thing and that creativity thrives when different backgrounds and perspectives are brought to the table. So if you’re any sort of minority in the game industry then we definitely encourage you to apply. Diversity is something we are constantly striving for.
Perks of being a Coffee Stainer
We offer competitive salaries with excellent benefits. We have a really nice insurance program which you will benefit from, payments to your pension fund as well as getting time off to work out.
You will get a chance to have a big influence over your own work and taking initiative is encouraged. This goes for both the projects we work in or life at the office in general. Besides all that you get to work with an amazing team in an amazing office.

(that's "thank you" for all you non-scandinavians like me out there who, when joining, was inundated with crazy new words like semla and sjuksköterska. but it's ok, you get used to it after a while)
