We’re looking for a Senior Game Developer to help us make stuff that matters.
Who are you?
Your ability to look beyond your stack helps you take an idea from inception to delivery, writing efficient, readable, well-tested code to accomplish tasks and solve technical problems. With a GitHub and/or portfolio that shows off your four (4) or more years of experience, you have a proven track record of focusing on hitting deadlines and solving customer issues. You enjoy developing elegant solutions for complex problems. You’re a thinker, a doer, a dreamer, and a maker:
- Developing in Unity for mobile over the past FOUR+ years has kept you busy developing expert level skills, and you’re looking to apply those skills to next-level mobile games.
- You’re confident in your creativity and ability, willing to have your ideas built upon, and are pumped to work with design and product teams to create games you’d love to play.
- You take the lead, do code reviews, collaborate, and mentor other developers at every opportunity.
- You knuckle down to push projects past the goal line in a crunch.
- You help increase the quality of our code through attention to detail in pull requests, refactoring, and test-driven development.
- You do test-driven development.
- Experience with any of these is a bonus: AR/VR, Unreal Engine, Roblox
Wait, what? That’s me! Tell me more! What would my day look like?
Reporting to a Project Producer, you’ll primarily work on the frontend, but should also know enough backend to be able to integrate with a client’s APIs, CMSes, or frameworks when required. You’ll typically be working on more than one project at a time, but we try to minimize context switching by batching project tasks into full days worth of work.
- From concept through launch, you’ll dive in and support product development including task time estimation, game design, coding, mechanics, animation, prototyping, asset management, testing, and debugging.
- You’ll help support and grow other people or systems in a way that benefits everyone.
- You’ll develop and test reusable components and internal tools..
- You’ll participate in code reviews, pair-programming, project reviews, API design reviews, technical reviews of product stories with in-depth yet constructive criticism; and give and take feedback.
- You’ll be vocal about efficiency and quality, and share what you know about how to improve.
- You’ll participate in 1:1 check-ins with the Director of Development on a regular basis to give feedback, get coaching, and stay connected.
Important to know: Since COVID began we have been working remotely. You'll be expected to hop on to our Google Workspace to catch up on project chats and then ask your Producer what you should be focused on that day. You’ll be expected to participate in a quick daily standup with your Producer and team, and provide regular status updates.
Yeah, I want in! How do we get started?
We thought you would. We need to see some evidence of your development experience, how you’ve made an impact on other teams. Please be sure to include a link to your GitHub and/or portfolio in your application!
