Come join Revolution and work as part of a friendly team of designers. The nature of the job is varied, with a focus around scripting using UE4 and Blueprints.

It would be great if you also have:
- Shipped at least one commercial title on current gen consoles.
- Interest in other disciplines inside Unreal, such as animation and materials.
- Basic knowledge of programming languages such as C++ or C#.
The contract would run over the period of the project development (subject to a probationary period), with option to extend to following projects.
As we are a relatively small but core team you must be flexible, and be happy to take responsibility for a wide range of tasks related to your role.
If you are interested in being part of a highly skilled team who are working on original, narrative-based games, in a creative atmosphere, and meet these criteria then please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject-line: "Senior Technical Designer Application".
