Web Game Programmer

at GoldFire Studios in Oklahoma City, OK   —   Jul 14, 2014   |  
Overview
We are looking for self-motivated engineers to work in a tight-knit team developing unique gameplay experiences for the web. We aren't making your average social games, we are making what we like to call "truly" social games. We are also targeting the more hardcore (or "midcore") audience of gamers rather than your average Farmville player.

We love to use cutting-edge technologies to make our games as interactive as possible, which is why we are currently developing mainly with Javascript, HTML5, Node.js, and MongoDB. We do still do work on some of our older games with PHP and MySQL as well. The work you do here will matter, which means we won't just tell you what to do, you will have significant impact on the finished products.

We are a small startup, which means things move very quickly, you will have more responsibility than your average office job, your role won't be well defined, and we like to have a lot of fun (how can you make fun games if you don't have fun in the process?). If this sounds appealing to you rather than working at a large corporation, give us a shout.
Responsibilities
Designing and implementing cool game features
Delivering high quality features on a regular basis
Participating in regular game tests before releases
Participating in development of new game ideas and implimentations
Staying up-to-date with relevant technologies and proactively suggesting architecture changes and new coding practices
Experience
First and foremost, a passion for playing and making video games
Ability to communicate design decisions, trade-offs, code walk-throughs and bugs thoroughly, clearly, and concisely
Ability to adapt, take critical feedback, and execute quickly
Understanding of algorithmic complexity and web-scale infrastructure
Understanding of game balance, including statistics, virtual goods, economics and user motivations
Experience working in a fast and agile environment
Experience working with multiple teams, design requirements, and translate requirements into working product; desire to work with other teams to understand marketing / product requirements
Skills
Comfortable with Javascript and at least 1 other language (if you are a talented programmer, you can pick this up fairly quickly)
Comfortable with MVC
Comfortable with database model, query, performance analysis, and security
Outstanding written and oral communication skills
