This is a full-time hybrid position in Orlando (FL), Chicago (IL), or Nashville (TN) with relocation options for out-of-state applicants.

Mid-Level Software Engineers 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 software engineer 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 Software Engineer 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 software engineers typically have strong communication skills and work well with diverse cross-functional teams. This is a mid-level position. Candidates should have a solid knowledge of game development. Responsibilities vary based on the project and expertise. Our Mid-Level Software Engineers typically have between three to six years of game dev experience or equivalent experience in a related technical field. Here are some examples of what a Mid-Level Software Engineer might be expected to do at Iron Galaxy Studios.


  • Implement new features or systems

  • Assist in the creation of technical design documents for new systems

  • Review game design documents and provide feedback

  • Implement low-level subsystems for new platforms

  • Ensure adherence to platform compliance requirements


  • Experience at a game studio (any size)

  • Solid understanding of C/C++

  • Desire to learn and grow

  • Strong debugging skills
