UOAlive is looking to expand it's Dev Team!

UOAlive is a modern, OSI-accurate server focused on providing a fun, relaxed PvE experience. As the largest PvE server and the server that picked up where OSI kinda stopped putting in effort, we are dedicated to keeping Ultima Online vibrant and engaging and ALIVE. We are looking for people not only experienced in dev work but who really understand and appreciate our core mission to create a safe space where the community is valued above everything else. Check out our player testimonials here.

We've been driven by passion, not profit, for over 7+ years. We are proud to be one of the only freeshards without a pay to win shop, and we intend to keep it that way.
As our population grows exponentially, our players cherish the warm, friendly community they’ve created with the tools we provide. To support this growth, we’re seeking a staff position for those with the skills and passion to join us.

Position: C# Developer

  • Using UOAlives code (a mixture of ModernUO/ServUO/and our own cocktail) and C#, collaborate with staff and players to resolve bugs, create quality-of-life improvements, and develop exciting and on brand content.
  • Ensure all content and improvements align with UOA’s vision of balance, modernity, and OSI-accuracy.
  • Work as part of a team to create what’s best for the server and its players.
  • Embrace both meta and non-meta elements of game development to enhance the overall player experience, new or old.
  • Proficiency and experience in C# (we can help you hone and grow your skills).
  • Basic knowledge and experience with ServUO/RunUO/ModernUO.
  • Knowledge of modern Ultima Online game mechanics or a willingness to learn the game.
  • Familiarity with GitHub and the workflow of push/pull using Visual Studio (or equivalent).
  • Passion for UO, problem-solving, and out-of-the-box thinking.
  • Enjoy pleasant interactions with players and fellow staff members on Discord.
  • Understand and embrace the server’s player-centric philosophy.
  • Ability to follow server rules and embrace the Safe Space.
Does this sound like you? If so, you might be a great fit! We’d love to discuss this opportunity in more depth.

For more information and to apply: Join the UOAlive Discord Server, take a look around, and if you like what you see, open a help ticket to chat with us. We value proposals from those who demonstrate initiative and understanding of our community over generic applications.

Do NOT open a ticket saying "I want the position!" tell us why, what makes you qualified, and if you can provide a proposal on what you would bring to the table and what UOAlive means to you. It's one thing to have the qualifications, it is another to be able to show us what you are currently working on that makes you stand out!

DISCLAIMER: Most team roles at UOAlive require a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) to protect user privacy for those with behind-the-scenes access. Learn more about this policy here. Applicants with less than 30 days of game time must provide strong evidence of their qualifications through activities in UOAlive, such as news report examples, coding experience, or contributions to the community. This is to prevent high turnover in key roles. Initiative in hosting in-game events and contributing to the community is always noticed and rewarded!
