Company: Velan Studios, Inc.
Location: Troy
Posted on: June 20, 2022

Job Description:

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 self-motivated exploration.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 (via internships).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.About Velan Studios:Velan Studios is an independent studio comprised of a passionate and diverse team of seasoned developers. We are the creators behind Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit and Knockout City. Velan Studios' mission is to create ground-breaking game experiences centered on new forms of play across both existing and emerging platforms. Velan Studios maintains a team of both remote and on-site employees. On-site employees work from our office in Troy, NY.
