Upstart Games is setting up a Cork office and two employees are confirmed to start shortly. Positions were recently advertised on irishjobs.ie. Initially, the work will primarily revolve around porting games to J2ME, Brew and imode from reference builds created in Dublin or Tokyo.
There will be further opening for developers over the coming months. Again, these will primarily be involved in porting. Skills required are a love of games and an excellent knowledge of C, C++. J2ME would be an advantage as would experience with 3D engines.
