The Architect (Full Time) - Digit Game Studios (Dub)
|3rd June 2012
We are looking for a guru. A unique individual so talented they don't fit into the normal tech team structure. This person spends their life frustrated at other people, they are always wondering "Why did they take 10 lines to write that piece of code, it only takes 1!"
Our Architect designs and improves our games engines. They make sure all of our games achieve the highest performance and scalability targets possible. The Architect works alongside the main game development team, helping them with feature architecture where needed and giving advice on developing highly scalable code. They will also lead our R&D on potential new languages for new games engines.
This is a 100% hands on tech role. No people management. This person is not limited by the coding language or their current knowledge. They will learn and push themselves wherever needed to create the best, most scalable game engines. We also expect the architect to enjoy sharing their knowledge with the team.
