WE ARE GOD OF WAR! JOIN US!

You’re into tech, really all tech, but graphics and low-level stuff are your bread and butter.  Optimizations – definitely, both CPU and GPU.  Graphics systems – of course: whatever the artists need to make the highest quality visuals.  And part of you thinks like they do, which is great, since you will be collaborating with them often.

And you are talented and motivated, with tons of initiative. You get things done. Sound interesting? Give us a shout.
