Lead Game Programmer (KL)

We see ourselves as a new civilisation of people emerging to make the world of gaming better. We’re a different breed of games company - we do things our own way in our own style, not necessarily following what’s been done before.


Our people are at the heart of our evolution and we nurture them to be their best. Without them our vision would fail.


We strive to avoid crunch, overtime is optional and always paid, and we offer flexible working hours to allow you to enjoy a normal family life whilst making great games.

We’ve helped millions to fight their way through fearsome mobs in Minecraft Dungeons, battle each other and the environment in Rust: Console Edition and most recently worked with Bethesda Game Studios to craft new adventures for Vault Dwellers around the world in Fallout 76.


We’re growing rapidly and as a result we’re looking for a Lead Game Programmer to join our studio in Mid Valley City, Kuala Lumpur (strategically placed at the heart of Kuala Lumpur). As a Lead Game Programmer at Double Eleven, you’ll be responsible for leading, developing, motivating and managing a team of programmers while collaborating with other teams on the project.


In this role you will set up camp at our Kuala Lumpur studio. We are continuing to assess the covid-19 situation, and our studio is set-up with the necessary covid-19 support measures to keep our teams safe. The wellbeing of our teams is at the heart of everything we do, and we are keen that all our teams feel safe and reassured.


Strictly no agencies (sorry guys!) and we’re unable to sponsor a visa for this role. We can support MY relocation and have a dedicated People team on standby to assist you and your family with every step to us.
