Kythera - AI Programmer

AI Programmer


Join our small, growing team of talented and professional AI programmers. We need experienced AI developers who recognise the common threads in each client’s challenges, and help us build solutions that advance our product, not just the case in hand. Help us develop Kythera towards our ambitions and apply it in our partners’ exciting titles.

You will create both high-level behaviours for our clients, and systems within Kythera to support them. You will work flexibly with the rest of the team and directly with developers at our clients’ studios, writing code for the core Kythera environment, and the AI and game code specific to each project. Clients often look to us to help on behaviour design, so your creative input will be needed too.

We expect a great deal of initiative from each team member, as well as professionalism in working directly with our clients’ own developers. In return, we offer every member of the team great trust, responsibility and transparency. You will help achieve industry-leading results in AI, as well as help define direction for our product. We will make sure you have everything you need to do that, and to pursue your own direction too.
