Improbable has created SpatialOS: a networking solution combining low latency, tools for faster iteration, and a ready-to-go architecture capable of supporting innovative games.

Now the Improbable Defence division, building on the backbone of SpatialOS, has combined world class scientific modelling, market leading AI, mission specific user interfaces and a uniquely flexible and secure deployment model to create a powerful simulation platform tailored to the needs of the military.

Our mission? To enable the most realistic and effective military simulations ever experienced, making defence users more effective on operations and decreasing the cost of military preparedness. 

Mission

The Partner Engineering team are software engineers responsible for providing deep technical expertise to our strategic partners & customers to successfully develop and build with SpatialOS and our advanced probabilistic modelling products.

Partner Engineers at improbable are Software Engineers with deep knowledge of the core concepts of our faster-than-realtime simulation products, and help our industry partners to build specific products. A Partner Engineer in the Defence Unit helps design, deploy, and support solutions that are performant, scalable, and highly available wherever the end user requires.
