A Little Bit about Kwalee….
Kwalee is one of the world’s leading multiplatform game developers and publishers, with well over 900 million downloads worldwide for mobile hits such as Draw It, Teacher Simulator, Let’s Be Cops 3D, Airport Security and Makeover Studio 3D. We also have a growing PC and Console team of incredible pedigree that is on the hunt for great new titles to join TENS!, Eternal Hope, Die by the Blade and Scathe.What’s In It For You?
Are You Up To The Challenge?
You will be working with Unity and a 3rd party “LunaLab Playable Plugin” which allows playable ads to be created in the Unity Engine and exported to the various ad platforms which have tight requirements on size, format and performance, taking the hard work out of making playable in HTML5 and WebGL. You will learn about the more traditional game development challenges such as platform restrictions, performance and optimization, an art sometimes lost in modern development but certainly should not be forgotten. The games have a very small tight loop, a perfect environment for learning good coding architecture and gameplay programming, something the team focuses quite heavily on.
Your Team Mates
Your immediate team is composed of young talented programmers fairly new to the industry who are self motivated and eager to learn. The wider development team carries huge amounts of industry experience who are always willing to help and you are encouraged to learn from.
What Does The Job Actually Involve?
- Brainstorming concept documents for new playable ads.
- Designing, planning (with UMLs) and developing playables in Unity.
- Solving problems that arise from development.
Your Hard Skills
- 1+ years experience with Unity.
- 1+ years experience programming in C#.
- Excellent communication skills.
- Ability to derive tasks from a design document.
- Attention to detail.
- Self motivated.
- Ability to work individually and as part of a team.
- Experience with source control such as SVN, Git or Perforce
- Android / iOS or UI experience would be desirable.
- Interest in design and how marketing works in games would be ideal.
- An avid interest in either console or mobile games, preferably both.
Your Soft Skills
Kwalee has grown fast in recent years but we’re very much a family of colleagues. We welcome people of all ages, races, colours, beliefs, sexual orientations, genders and circumstances, and all we ask is that you collaborate, work hard, ask questions and have fun with your team and colleagues.
We don’t like egos or arrogance and we love playing games and celebrating success together. If that sounds like you, then please apply.
