About Coffee Stain Studios

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 Studios is located in Skövde, Sweden, one of the most gamer-centric cities in the country. The city is only a short train ride away from both Stockholm and Gothenburg which makes the location ideal.

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.

Programmer Role Description

Our current programming team consists of 5 people, the team is experienced and have worked together for a long time. To get the chance to be part of this great team you need to be a down to earth nice person. The programming team works 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 gameplay programming with high variety in your work tasks. As we are a small-ish studio, you will be expected to be able to work with people across all disciplines within game development.

Ideally you have already worked at least a couple of years in the games industry. You are familiar and comfortable with agile development. We are currently working in Unreal Engine 4, which means you will be working in both C++ and blueprint ( visual script ). Any Unreal Engine 4 or C++ experience is a big plus, but not a requirement.

Perks of being a Coffee Stainer

We offer competitive salaries with excellent benefits. We have a really nice bonus program which you will benefit from, payments to your pension fund as well as getting time off to work out.

As an employee you will also have creative time every other week which lets your inner passion blossom. You will also 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.

If any of this seem interesting to you, please don’t hesitate to get back to us at:

(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)
