Tools Programmer

We are Fatshark

We are a critically acclaimed Swedish game development studio with about 150 experienced and skilled employees out of Stockholm. We are most well-known for developing the Warhammer: Vermintide franchise, but have also helped develop a number of AAA titles and will soon be launching the highly anticipated game Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. 


We have grown quite a bit over the last few years but we still embrace the same values that we started with and still think of ourselves like one big family with fun at the center. We are known for our crazy internally designed socks, hack-weeks, use Friday afternoons for studio-wide “social play” time and our CEO is not beneath fixing the coffee machine himself. It all adds up to an approachable, fun, passion-driven yet communal environment for us to work in. 

If that type of culture sounds appealing, then read on!

The role

At Fatshark we use our own inhouse game engine called Stingray. The tools team, with which you will be working, is a small team dedicated to keeping the tools related to our inhouse engine up to date and relevant. Tools such as level editor, localization or shader editors.

You will focus on improving the tools stability and speed in order to improve our coworkers workflow. We work with many programming languages and technologies, but as long as you’re proficient in similar tech, such as ruby, C# and WPF, we’re sure we can help you adapt and learn.

You might have a couple of years of experience working with software development or perhaps newly graduated with a programming related degree.

Who are we?

When we put Fatshark to sea in 2007, we wanted to create a place where talented people would come together and create awesome games. We did, and Fatshark is today a studio and publisher where great ideas spawn and reach the hands of countless players.

Equally important to us, we’ve never lost the joy that goes into creating great games. Over the years, we have created a habitat in which all kinds of fatsharks can thrive.


Cooperation is key

At Fatshark, we develop and publish cooperative games, where people come together to have fun and solve problems together. In a Fatshark game, you are given the freedom to succeed or fail trying as a group. And that's exactly the way we like it. Through teamwork in our games and in our studio, 1+1=3.
