Avalanche Studios – Malmo, SE
Avalanche Studios is looking for a User Interface Programmer to join a top-tier and experienced team, helping to implement the UI for an exciting project.
As a UI Programmer on this project, you will work with designers and artists to conceive of and implement elements of how the game is presented to the player. Your work will involve implementing menu screens, maps, tutorials, in-game indicators, heads-up display (HUD) elements, special fonts, and other graphical additions according to agreed upon design specifications. This role will also require identifying and developing tools to allow artist or designers to create, debug, tweak or fine-tune their own interface elements.
Particularly for this role, it is critical that you see your responsibility as delivering a successful end-user experience, together with your team-mates, rather than just handing off technological solutions to content creators. A game is only as good as the interface provided to the player.
Previous experience and a proven ability to work with multiple systems and stakeholders is a definite advantage. As with any other programming role, you will have to be able to balance functional and aesthetic requirements with technical requirements in the areas of performance, stability, memory usage, and interoperability.
The skills and XP you'll need to succeed:
- Experience in C/C++
- Deep reverence for the principles of UI design
- Technical familiarity with Flash authoring and ActionScript
- Some experience in modern rendering techniques
The following will earn you BONUS POINTS:
- Experience with the Scaleform SDK
- Respectable technical art skill
- Previously shipped games on modern console platforms
- A good eye for graphic design
To thrive in a programming position at Avalanche Studios, you need to be willing and have the ability to learn new tools and workflows. You should have a positive attitude and contribute to a healthy team dynamic by seeing opportunities and highlighting limitations in a constructive way. You'll be a great communicator, able to clearly establish common goals and align expectations. Your ambitions and interests should help you push the boundaries of the user experience, skillfully balancing this with the realities and constraints of the situation at hand.
