Deeply Curious Programmer
Company: Velan Studios, Inc.
Posted on: May 15, 2022
We are Velan Studios, an independent game developer with a
passion for the unconventional, and we are looking for great
programmers to add to our team. We have two requirements:
We use C (our preference) and C++ (if we must), to create games and
related things. You must be very comfortable in C and C++, and have
produced at least one major project using C/C++.
Our curiosity drives us. You must be deeply curious about
something, and have some evidence of that curiosity. We are looking
for candidates that demonstrate a pattern of persistent and
We value a diverse programming team. Candidates need not have prior
game development experience or a computer science degree. We will
consider veteran programmers, new graduates, and those in school
We use a collaborative, cross-discipline, and iterative development
process. We work on constrained hardware (CPU, GPU, memory) and
with hard performance targets (60Hz refresh rate). Beyond that, the
problem domain is very broad. Some of the big-ticket items on our
backlog right now:
Build our second-generation computer vision and SLAM pipeline.
Stand up our proprietary engine (Viper) on some new platforms.
Own our rigid body physics system. Make it better.
We have so many ideas for new game modes and level mechanics.
Iterate on them.
While many of our programmers have areas of expertise, we do not
hire programmers so that they may work exclusively in one
specialized area. Programmers should own areas of our technology,
but have the flexibility to work across the codebase. Future
members of the programming team need to be ready to embrace our
studio values including:
World class through unconventional thinking.
Respect for players and colleagues. Ready for the responsibility
that comes from that respect.
Regional technology and game development community engagement.
