Do you want to play a part in creating the future of AI in game development? Do you love taking care of team members and making an organization hum with productivity? modl.ai delivers AI tools for video game studios and we’re looking for a team member to keep everything organized, on track, and our team happy.

You will join our band of top class game developers and machine learning experts. We are a small, efficient, and effective team collaborating across Europe and the Americas and have proven that we have the skills and products to work with some of the largest game developers in the world. We have delivered cutting edge projects for world class studios, and made meaningful progress productizing our methods and deliveries.

Your Role

You will be collaborating with our Chief Product Officer and Lead Engineer on our game development tools. Supporting our team of AI/ML experts to integrate and productize our novel machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms into Unity, Unreal Engine, and custom game engine packages.

As we continue our rapid growth you will help us accelerate productivity while prioritizing the health, happiness and creativity of our team. You value the long term gains of implementing a well-defined roadmap and, even though you are used to working in sprints, you understand that building technology is a marathon. Crunching isn’t an acceptable tool in development and doesn’t provide real progress long-term. The most important asset you have is your team.

When unexpected technical challenges arise, you feel comfortable making well considered decisions and have no problem reporting back to the organization what is realistic to accomplish by when. Communicating clearly and setting expectations to avoid misalignment down the line and to deliver both a professional product and a professional process every time.

While being fully remote is an option short-term, given the current pandemic, we will ultimately need you to relocate to our headquarters in Copenhagen for ease of communication and coordination with our Product and Engineering leads. We will assist you with relocation funding, visa sponsorship, practical and partner support as needed.
