ANDROID DEVELOPER

Hello, we’re Glowmade! We’re building a game that’s about creating, exploring, and sharing. We want to unlock people's imagination, help them build a community and express themselves in wonderful, fun ways.

We are a funded start-up owned and run by highly motivated and experienced game developers. This is an opportunity to play a crucial role in our small but efficient code team. Reporting to Jonny (Co-Founder and Tech Lead) you will be pivotal in the success of the Android version of our mobile game. You will build out the platform-specific parts of the product, including the client runtime and the backend toolchain.

This is an opportunity for you to make a significant contribution not only to the game but to our team and our company. Everyone at Glowmade has a voice, and it’s important to us that you feel empowered and are given the opportunity to use it.

From day one we would like you to…

  • Own the Android-specific areas of our mobile-first game
  • Develop and manage the Android asset build pipeline for our offline tools
  • Take responsibility for a test plan to ensure quality across a broad range of devices
  • Contribute to the performance, quality and fun of the whole game

In six months you will be…

  • Celebrating, having launched the first version of our game on Android (Or sweating, being very close to launching it)
  • Talking about what new features we can add
  • Part of regular content release cycles for a live product

Requirements…

  • Shipped at least one game on the Android platform
  • Confidence and willingness to lead: You will be the main port of call for the platform.
  • Solid knowledge of the Android NDK and OS, and C/C++
  • Cross-platform development experience
  • Minimum of 3 years professional development experience
  • Commitment to quality and an attention to detail
  • Ability to keep your head when overwhelmed by the terrifying array of devices your code will be played on

Advantageous qualities

  • Shipped a cross-platform mobile game
  • A passion for games and a solid understanding of tech development
  • A knowledge of OpenGL and modern mobile graphics techniques
  • Experience developing for Virtual Reality
