Job Description

Job title: JavaScript Games Developer

Location: Fully or flex remote (it’s up to you if you want to go into the studio or not)

Keywords: JavaScript, TDD, Node, WebGL, pixi, phaser, Tools, Game, Gaming, Games Developer, Front End, Game Design, Creative, Remote.

The snapshot…

Senior JavaScript Games Developer with JavaScript (fundamentals and advanced techniques), Node, pixi and phaser expertise is highly sought by an independent creative digital game studio to work on a wide range of mobile based games.

The company…

A small but growing team (28) of junior, mid and senior level creatives who have grown from their inception in 2017 to win a number of major new projects which has given us the opportunity to partner and work exclusively to grow the studio as they work alongside a number of industry leading game publishers.

The team…

You would be working in a development team of 8, with plans to double this in the next year. You would be working collaboratively with a wider team of game designers, artists and testers who work either fully remote, or flex remote.

The culture…

First and foremost, culture fit is of the utmost importance for roles at this studio. The team have established an excellent culture of trust, collaboration, fun and an enjoyable team spirit where each member play an important role in each title’s success. As such, they’ve established a relaxed and creative culture of looking out for each other, and creativity is highly encouraged in all aspects of a game’s lifecycle.

The benefits…

Fully remote working, flexi working hours (they are super flex on this, it’s more about work done than hours done), stunning studio set up (if you want to come in, there’s a pool table, on-site bistro with home cooked food, pension etc)

The requirements…

We’re looking for a creative developer who is looking to use advanced JavaScript techniques and push the boundaries of what can be achieved with JavaScript and WebGL Frameworks (such as pixi, phaser etc..) in mobile gaming.

Key skills we’re looking for…

* 4+ years games development experience

* Advanced JavaScript skills

* Mobile gaming experience

* Passion for writing clean well documented code

* Exposure to building tools and scripting

Bonus points for…

* Experience with WebGL or WebGL frameworks (pixi, phaser)

* Exposure to TDD methodologies

* Node.js skills

* Excellent comms and experience working in collaborative and creative teams

The process..

First, a short call with me 🙂 – my job is to ensure we find the right type of people to collaborate and compliment the current set up. Again, culture fit here is key!

Next, a chat with the head of the studio which I promise isn’t as scary as that sounds. You will get a really good feel for the studio and what it’s like to work here after this chat, I feel.

Short tech task so we can see what you can do and then, I hope, either an offer or a run through as to why they didn’t move forwards to offer – I’ll get detailed feedback if unsuccessful which hopefully you’ll find useful moving forwards to help you get closer to securing that dream role 🙂
