  • Work closely with animation and character teams to seamlessly integrate AI behaviors with character animations and models.
  • Optimize AI systems for performance and memory usage to uphold high frame rates and support numerous active NPCs.
  • Identify and resolve AI-related bugs and unwanted behaviors throughout development and post-release support phases.
  • Conduct player behavior analysis during playtests to identify opportunities for enhancing player experiences.
Requirements:
  • Bachelor's degree or higher in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a related field, or equivalent professional experience.
  • Proficient in C++ programming.
  • Experience in Unreal Engine development.
  • Familiarity with visual scripting.
