Job Description

Double Eleven are proud to be developers of Rust: Console Edition and as we continue to drive the development of this popular multiplayer survival game, we are looking for a Lead Programmer to join the team on this hugely successful project.

Fully remote working is an option for this role or if you prefer, you can set up camp at our HQ in Middlesbrough.

We see ourselves as a new civilisation of people emerging to make the world of gaming better. We’re a different breed of games company – we do things our own way in our own style, not necessarily following what’s been done before.

Our people are at the heart of our evolution and we nurture them to be their best. Without them our vision would fail.

We strive to avoid crunch, overtime is optional and always paid, and we offer flexible working hours to allow you to enjoy a normal family life whilst making great games. ​

We’ve helped millions to fight their way through fearsome mobs in Minecraft Dungeons, battle each other and the environment in Rust: Console Edition and most recently worked with Bethesda Game Studios to craft new adventures for Vault Dwellers around the world in Fallout 76. ​

Strictly no agencies (sorry guys!). We can support UK relocation and have a dedicated People team on standby to assist you and your family with every step to us.
