ONLINE PROGRAMMER

We’re looking for an experienced programmer to join our team and take charge of the online multiplayer components of the game. We’ve got big hearts and big ideas, and this is an opportunity to play a pivotal role in our nascent team. Reporting to Jonny Hopper (Co-Founder, Technical Director), this role is a bit of a hybrid! There are two key responsibilities to fill:

  1. Help the game team build real-time multiplayer features

  2. Build out and iterate on our backend server stack.

We realise this is a big ask but if either of these things is your jam we want to hear from you!

FROM DAY ONE WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO…

  • Start taking ownership over key multiplayer features 

  • Learn about our (fairly low) server stack

  • Get stuck into the game and the studio

IN SIX MONTHS YOU WILL BE:

  • The go-to team member for networking and multiplayer queries

  • Optimising our real-time bandwidth usage

  • Building a resilient and robust live ops architecture

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE WOULD:

  • Have worked on multiplayer games before

  • Love to learn and try new things even if they feel under qualified (we all feel like that some of the time)

  • 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.

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

ADVANTAGEOUS QUALITIES:

  • Shipped a game as part of a team

  • Know clever things about SQL and Golang

  • Experience delivering a cross-platform multiplayer project

  • Not super-fussed about Object Oriented design

A FEW MORE BITS:

This role 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 we need to have you here with us onsite. We offer competitive wages and 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!
