Gaming Engineer Job Description

A Gaming Engineer is a software engineer who specializes in designing and programming video games. Gaming Engineers often work with other developers to create the video games. They are a part of the video game creation process from the beginning with concept development and the initial prototype. Gaming Engineers create the coding sequences that enable end users to play the game. If the game will be played on multiple devices, then they may have to create multiple coding sequences.

To qualify for a Gaming Engineer job, applicants should have a bachelor's degree in computer science or another related field. They should have in-depth knowledge of computer programming languages, data modeling, computational mathematics and problem solving. Gaming Engineers must also be able to work collaboratively with a team.
