LOCATION:   Remote

OVERVIEW:

ProFocus is searching for a Sr Game Developer – WebGL, Typescript for a 4-6 month+ contract at an exciting EdTech company.  This is a fully remote position.

  • This is a senior level game developer role with great pay and is responsible for producing amazing and engaging games for elementary aged students via a multi-platform 3D world.  This team operates in a fast-paced environment at a company that is scaling quickly and since the pandemic has become the market leader.  Please email us your resume so we can discuss.

POSITION DETAILS

  • Join our internal game studio.  We’re building a multi-user, multi-platform 3D world for kids aged 5-8 to create and play with their classmates. The game environment is procedurally generated and user-customizable. With millions of kids already active on the platform, the game is “live-by-default” – we work very iteratively and practice continuous delivery/deployment, with the ability to ship updates multiple times a week. But that doesn’t mean that we’re just chasing metrics; we work very closely with kids to find the fun, and with teachers to find the learning. We strive to build a game with heart, soul, and a point of view – because when those things are missing, kids notice.

REQUIREMENTS

  • You have 3+ years of game development experience
  • You have experience in OpenGL and/or WebGL
  • You have past experience delivering 3D games for Mobile platforms, and experience working within the performance budgets of mobile games
  • You have the ability to work effectively with cross-functional teams
  • You have experience in a company with a high-quality culture
  • You have a track record for creating compelling games and playful experiences
  • You have a passion for games and ability to think out of the box — plus, having a strong instinct for what makes a great game.

PREFERRED

  • Experience with other backends (e.g. Vulkan/Metal/DirectX)
  • Have strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Provide a strong portfolio with work samples
  • Authorization to work in the US is a precondition of employment. We do not sponsor work visas.
