Software Engineer (Distributed Simulation), Enterprise

Engineering @ London

Our Purpose

Improbable is dedicated to building powerful technology designed to help solve previously impossible problems and enable the creation of new realities. In gaming and entertainment, Improbable unlocks truly next-generation gameplay through virtual worlds of unprecedented scale, persistence and richness. In other industries, we hope to help answer critical questions through simulations that could lead to a better functioning world.

Our platform, SpatialOS, lets developers transcend the limits of regular computation, allowing swarms of servers running in the cloud to cooperate in order to simulate worlds far larger and more complex than any single server could.

We are a British technology company proudly building a diverse workforce, driven by a shared desire to improve and achieve extraordinary things. We’re crafting technology for the future and fostering a problem-solving culture that embraces innovation through iteration and experimentation.

Your Mission

2019 will see significant investment in creating a new ecosystem of technology and partners to create the most advanced Modelling and Simulation (as a service, or MSaaS) platform ever built. This platform will target initially military simulation, with a longer term focus on simulation across government.

Our core engineering teams are focussed on building complete product solutions to tough engineering problems including:
- External Game Engine and Physics Engine Integrations
- Enterprise Hosting including security and flexible deployability
- Augmented and Virtual Reality integrations and platform features
- Core scalability challenges including world size and entity complexity

We leverage Java, C++ and Golang and you will be afforded the opportunity to work across our technical stack, directly with partners or with our cloud infrastructure groups. We have a modern agile engineering environment that you can read more about here
