This is an opportunity to play a crucial role in our small but efficient code team. Reporting to Jonny Hopper (Co-Founder and Technical Director), you’ll be working closely with him and the design team as you implement that elusive, ethereal Fun. We need you to build critical gameplay features all the way from meeting the design and art needs, to what the player sees on their screen.

FROM DAY ONE WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO:

  • Enthusiastically jump into the existing codebase and take ownership over key features

  • Work closely with both our art and design teams to make their needs a reality

IN SIX MONTHS YOU WILL BE:

  • Pivotal to the success of the game, having designed and built key code features

  • A central, supportive member of our small team

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE WOULD:

  • Enjoy working in a variety of gameplay disciplines, from controls, to scripting, to combat and AI. 

  • Have the ability to wrap your head round the ‘feel’: that thing that makes a product feel great and puts a smile on someone’s face.

  • Come armed with a strong technical background, where your intuition to the ‘what’ is backed up by the ‘why’

  • Show willingness to do all the things, in order to Get Them Done.

  • Be at C++ Level: Brilliant, but not so Brilliant you use template metaprogramming, traits and std::range all the time.

ADVANTAGEOUS QUALITIES:

  • An artistic eye married with an ability to express that in code

  • Shipped a game as part of a team

  • Interest in physics, networking and rendering

  • Experience working on a cross-platform project

  • Experience in performance and optimisation

  • Not super-fussed about Object Oriented design

A FEW MORE BITS:

This is an opportunity for you to make a significant contribution not only to the game but to our team and the company. Everyone at Glowmade has a voice, and it’s important to us that you feel empowered and are given the time and space to use it.

We’re based in Guildford, UK and so we’d really like to have you here with us onsite. We offer competitive wages and we are an actively equal opportunities employer. If all of the above sounds exciting and you think you can fill this pivotal role, please get in touch. No agencies please!
