  • Exemplify and promote standards for code, design, development, debugging, optimization, review, testing, and documentation
  • Establish mutual trust and respect among your teammates, and celebrate one another’s successes

Job Requirements:

  • Relevant software tool development experience; video Game industry experience is not required
  • Strong object-oriented design, development, and debugging experience using managed languages in the Microsoft .NET Framework: C# 5.0+ is preferred, and experience in C, C++, or other unmanaged languages is a plus
  • Strong communication skills, able to collaborate closely with the tools’ users and discover what they need; great candidates will be able to provide examples of technical writing
  • Knowledge of 3ds Max, Maya, and common scripting languages such as Python is a plus, but not required

Qualification & Experience:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related discipline or equivalent experience
  • At least 3+ years professional experience developing applications through all phases of the product lifecycle
