Iron Galaxy Studios is seeking Programmers to join our world-class engineering team. We are a well-established independent game developer who has worked with the titans of our industry to ship more high-caliber games than any other indie developer.

Programmers at Iron Galaxy work on a wide variety of projects, including creating new games from the ground up, co-developing games with partners, and porting existing games to new platforms. Our projects tend to have shorter development cycles; it’s not uncommon for a programmer to work on more than one project in a year. We’ve found that this helps keep things fresh and provides opportunities to utilize experience gained from previous projects.
As a Programmer at Iron Galaxy, you’ll get the chance to help architect and implement features and systems, debug difficult problems, and tackle new challenges. In addition to their technical skills, our programmers typically have strong communication skills and work well with diverse cross-functional teams.
