Tools Programmer to build creative procedural generation tools
As a Tools Programmer at Dims you would build procedural tools, and with these totally rethink how player-creation of games is done.
We started Dims to make a platform where creators who love open world games can come and build dynamic, interactive worlds and games together with their friends.
We want player-creators to be able to make large 10x10km worlds, with their friends in realtime, as their characters. Going for a realistic art style. So if your dream is to create your own Middle Earth or the Star Wars world Tatooine with your friends you should be able to do that, all while messing around within the world you're creating.
