“The PopCap studio is looking for an experienced generalist SE to build a AAA console title. This generalist will work on a broad range of game systems including, but not limited to: animation, audio, resource management, pipelines and visual effects. The ideal candidate will also have experience working with the Frostbite 2 engine.
This job is with PopCap Games in Burnaby, Canada. While – obviously – nobody’s confirmed just what it’s all about at this stage, early rumours suggest that it’s a Plants vs Zombies spin-off, in the style of Team Fortress 2.
