Senior Tech Programmer

Aardvark Swift
Employer Aardvark Swift
Category Development
Salary Negotiable
Location Other

An excellent job opportunity has arisen in central Amsterdam with a rapidly expanding game development studio. 

My client is looking for a real grease monkey to work on the nuts and bolts of the game engine. As a Senior Tech Programmer, you analyze complex requirements and programming structures and turn them into simple, effective designs with even better implementations. 

You're very ambitious, and even though you like tried-and-tested methods you're not afraid to try something radical or new every now and then. Your skills are in the fields of graphics, audio, memory management, streaming, optimization or any combination thereof. 

The systems you produce are efficient and easy to maintain, and they do exactly what the end-user wants (regardless of whether that end user is a 3D artist, a sound director, a game designer or another coder). You encourage other people to be ambitious as well, but you always make sure to avoid unnecessary risks. 

Requirements 

Can you field-strip a game engine blindfolded? We want to hear from you if: 

• You've worked on (and completed) one or more games 
• You have a fiery passion for programming in general 
• You have a special knack for elegant technology that is customer-focused 
• You're fluent in C++ and other applicable programming languages 
• You can optimize code for performance, size, scalability and clarity 
• You're comfortable working with a large code base 

We especially want to hear from you if: 

• You have a helpful, solution-oriented attitude 
• You have very good knowledge of the mathematics behind 3D graphics 
• You have experience optimizing by vectorization and using vector intrinsics 
• You are familiar with the inner workings of current GPU architectures 
• You have experience designing and implementing parallel/distributed systems 
• You are fluent with OpenGL, DirectX, GCM, etc.
