Software Engineer - Learning Games

Engineering San Francisco, California


Description

Do you want to use your game development skills to help children learn? Our learning games team (www.motionmathgames.com) creates award-winning games that help students master math and delight in intellectual challenge. We’re a tight-knit, passionate team often greeted by cheers and applause when we walk into classrooms – we’ve even signed autographs for our kid fans. We’re looking to hire a Software Engineer to create new learning games, expand existing titles, and help build a world-class library of Unity components specifically designed for learning games.

The impact you’ll have:

· Collaborate with the team to add new features and game mechanics to our suite of award-winning learning games for elementary math.
· Bring new game concepts from prototype to polished final product.
· Iteratively refine student interactions to maximize learning and fun.
· Relentlessly fix bugs.
· Expand and refine our library of reusable Unity components that underlie our suite of mobile and web games in multiple genres.

What we’re looking for:

· Passion for helping children learn.
· Ability to work from our San Francisco office, located next to Montgomery BART.
· 2+ years working in the game industry, 2+ years working on the Unity platform. (Note: we may also be building games in HTML, but the majority will be in Unity.)
· Ability to discuss the merits of common game patterns and reusable architecture.
· Experience creating modular classes and services for reuse across diverse titles.
· Desire to learn from more senior engineers.
· Comfort taking ownership of myriad responsibilities on a entrepreneurial, collaborative, agile, 8-person team, that prides itself on speed. In the past, we’ve added new modes to existing games, scouted new games in 2 weeks, ported full games in 4-6 weeks, and made entirely new games in 3-6 months.

Bonus points:

· Mobile experience.
· Source control and release pipeline experience.
· Experience working on a game with a backend.
· QA experience.
· Experience optimizing for performance and memory footprint.
