January 22, 2024 — ACE MADDOX is looking for experienced C++ Software Engineers with console game development backgrounds to work on our proprietary game engine Falkonaut for Project FUMEAX, a unique vehicle/aircraft-based action game.


  • Initially remote.


  • Strong practical knowledge of C++.
  • Experience working on proprietary 3D engines and tools using a combination of runtime and offline Blender as gamedev UX.
  • A positive mindset — every issue is an opportunity to improve existing code.
  • You are ready to analyze/improve performance as required, perform high-quality debugging, and fix recurring errors/warnings (don’t even think about muting a warning!)
  • Experience debugging across a variety of hardware configurations.
  • Enthusiastic about current/next-gen consoles and eager to learn more.
  • Knowledge of multi-threaded engine architecture — with a respectable but limited number of threads (to ensure the technical scope is manageable.)
  • Timely, structured, and self-motivated individuals are preferred—strong written English skills.
  • Trustworthy with high integrity to ensure project details remain confidential.


  • Three or more years of hands-on experience working with PlayStation; at least one shipped title, whether indie or A+.
  • Strong interpersonal and communications skills.
  • Proficiency in trigonometry and linear algebra.


  • Our Falkonaut Engine is being developed primarily for PS5 and Xbox Series S|X. 
    • Roadmap Ambition: Feature-complete Q3, 2025.
    • Target platforms: PS5/Xbox, Nintendo Switch 2, Windows 11, SteamDeck, macOS.
  • Expected development cycle: Project FUMEAX is scheduled to begin on December 1, 2025, and run for 36 months.
    • Visual Studio 2023+ and other source code are hosted on repositories integrated with an easy-to-use issue tracker.
  • ACE MADDOX uses Discord and Zoom (we only use Signal for seriously confidential information.)


  • Unfortunately, we cannot respond to every request individually.
  • We do not offer internships of any kind.

Send your resume/experience overview to [email protected] if you are skilled and interested in this position.

This role is expected to begin as a remote position. We will contact you personally if we wish to continue the application process.
