Do you want to be part of shaping the next evolution of Paradox Grand Strategy? We are in early development of a brand new non-historical game led by veterans from several of our previous titles such as Hearts of Iron 4 and Crusader Kings 3, going all the way back to Europa Universalis 3.

About the Role

We’re looking for an Experienced Game Programmer with a strong C++ background. The perfect candidate is someone who understands strategy games and is driven by creating the best experience for the player.

You will be developing features and systems alongside designers and artists and fundamentally shape the games we release. Our developers have a high level of ownership over their work and it’s important that you can plan and manage your work efficiently. We expect you to solve problems and provide guidance in the team using your knowledge.

We’re in the early stages of development on a new Grand Strategy game and our programming team is small and very experienced. The team has a very open atmosphere where you’re encouraged to contribute in all aspects of the game and we regularly discuss technical design, art direction and game design. We’ve recently moved back to working from the office and value the collaboration and face to face conversations we can have in person, but we also see benefits in being flexible and being able to work from home.

If you want to make strategy games, intend to grow as a game developer and are interested in taking ownership of the features you develop, then make sure to contact us!

As an Experienced Game Programmer you will…

  • Build and maintain well-engineered C++ code with high levels of stability and performance.

  • Design and implement features in multiple areas such as gameplay systems, user interface, graphics, our scripting language and optimization.

  • Collaborate daily and estimate tasks with other programmers, designers and artists.

  • Continue to level-up as a programmer through internal workshops, code reviews and both giving and receiving guidance and feedback.


  • 1+ years of professional experience with C++

  • An interest in strategy games

  • Comfortable communicating with English, both written and spoken

  • Good debugging skills

  • A sense of independence and an ability to take long-term ownership of your features and ability to estimate your tasks and collaborate with technical and non-technical colleagues

Nice to Have

  • Experience playing our other Grand Strategy titles

  • 3+ years of experience in game programming

  • An interest in game design

Paradox Development Studio

At Paradox Development Studio we enjoy working close to our products and our fans and our developers regularly interact with players through forums and events, such as PDXCon. We think it’s important to get to know our colleagues so we end each Friday with a social hour at 4pm where we embrace our nerdy culture by chatting over a beer or breaking out into meeting rooms with board games and old video game consoles. Paradox consists of employees from all around the globe and we’re happy to offer relocation support for people applying from outside of Sweden.

Some of our benefits include:


If you think that this description matches you, we highly encourage you to apply as soon as possible as we will interview candidates continuously. If you don't match all the requirements, please demonstrate how your passion, attitude and interest in Paradox might compensate for this.

At Paradox Interactive we celebrate difference and care deeply about diversity and inclusion. We therefore encourage you, no matter who you are, to apply for this job if you think you’d be  a great addition to our team.
