Entry Level Game Programmer
Blue Frog Gaming | Akron OH 44333 USA | Full Time | Posted: 12/03/2012
Our first product, Draftmix, was a fantasy football website. We were the first on the net to offer short season, live drafts for real money.
In the offseason, we began working on Football Tycoon, a side project that took on a life of its own. After getting tens of thousands of users in just a few short months, we expanded our offerings to include Baseball Tycoon and later introduced Samurai Warrior, our first non-sports concept game.
After the Tycoon Series, we decided to start fresh and built a science fiction game called Starfleet Commander. Now our flagship game, Starfleet has over 350,000 monthly users and is the largest virtual universe on Facebook.
At Blue Frog Gaming, we look for people with a strong ability to get things done. Our developers are responsible for more than just coding. Their ideas help shape both our products and our processes. We aren't looking for someone to just pump out lines of code, we want someone who can also learn from us the things we know, and teach us some of the many we don't.
As an employee, you will work on a small and dynamic team to produce multiple games per year. Our organizational structure is very flat, and there is no bureaucracy. We move fast, use iterative development, and strive to always maintain a working code-base.
We offer competitive salary and vacation, stock options, and full health coverage.
Experience working on a code base with a team.
Experience with several programming languages.
Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
Strong object oriented programming skills.
Desire to write clean and modular code.
Strong problem solving skills.
Ability to self-manage.
Ability to learn new technologies quickly.
Ability to work with other team members.
Passion for building great games.
Experience developing games.
