AI Programmer

Create lifelike space simulations

As an AI programmer you will be working with our custom engine and our internal tools in a multi-

disciplinary environment composed by industry veterans, with the goal of creating systems and behaviours for our AI agents.

The goal for the AI of Star Citizen and Squadron 42 is to shape a world that looks highly realistic, vast and very reach in content, this can only be achieved working side-to-side with game designers, level designers, animators, audio programmers and all the members of the cloud imperium family.

Working with the latest PC hardware, technology and APIs, we develop extensive ranges of highly realistic and systemic features to create agent that can realistically and physically interact with the environment and the players to achieve a lifelike space simulation.
