What will you do?

  • Working closely with the Tools team members to create and implement new engine features
  • Working with the artists and designers on building content creation tools
  • Improving existing features in the engine editor
  • Investigating and fixing bugs to improve the overall editor experience
  • Write scripts and plug-ins
