Graduate Software Engineer - 2020 Start

London
Grad and Intern

Improbable believes in a future where new, virtual worlds will augment human experience and become as meaningful, lasting and rich as the physical world. We call this the Multiversal Self.

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.

At Improbable, you are surrounded by people who want to improve everything and everyone around them, and who compel you to improve yourself. We’re motivated by the fulfilment of solving hard problems to achieve something profound and transformative.

Your Mission

As a Graduate Engineer working at Improbable, you’ll be responsible for designing, building and running the software and systems which underpin our large-scale, real-time, distributed simulations. 

We expect you to build flexible services and tooling which allows Improbable to rapidly scale whilst delivering a seamless experience to our customers.

The Engineering team is responsible for providing a production environment where Simulations can run reliably and at scale. This involves everything from designing and implementing complex new algorithms to distribute and scale our simulations, through to developing the core infrastructure that underpins seamless scaling in massive virtual worlds. This necessitates building the services and APIs that expose these services to our developers and running Simulations.

We’d like to hear from you if you identify with the following

  • An excellent academic record, coupled with stand out extra-curricular activity and/or internships in a software environment.
  • A passion for gaming, simulation or distributed systems
  • Knowledge of programming languages such as C++, Go, C#, Java, Kotlin etc and paradigms 
  • Appreciation for productive software engineering including Testing, Tooling, IDE mastery etc
  • Algorithmic and data structures knowledge

While we think the above experience could be important, we can’t predict the future and so we’re keen to hear from applicants that believe they have valuable experience. If you identify with the team & mission, but not all of the suggestions, then please still apply!!
