Experimental Design is seeking a Unity Game Client Engineer to join our team to help create a cross-platform, interactive mega city of the future. You will be joining our team of designers, engineers, and researchers midway through our development schedule, helping to add features to a fully-functioning prototype as we approach our product release in the fall of 2021. These features will include, but not be limited to, social networking elements and user-generated content authoring. The ideal candidate will have experience with RESTful API communications and database systems integration.

This is a short-term contract assignment that will start late spring and last approximately 4 months (ending in Sept/Oct 2021), with potential to grow into a longer-term position. We have transitioned to a work-from-home structure over the past year, so this role is a remote position. We understand each person's circumstances may be unique and will work with you to explore scheduling options.

Responsibilities:

  • Implement game client features in Unity
  • Be a generalist with additional depth in backend server communications
  • Write and maintain quality, readable code
  • Collaborate with design on the implementation of features and systems from end-to-end
  • Provide engineering support for live operations

Required Skills: 

  • 4+ years experience in C#
  • Deep knowledge of data structures, algorithms and design patterns and how to apply them to the problem at hand
  • Experience with implementing game feature logic in a client/server environment
  • Experience digesting REST APIs from within a Unity environment
  • Ability to communicate effectively with artists, designers, and other engineers
  • Self-motivated and willing to participate in all areas of engineering

Nice to have:

  • Experience working with BaaS frameworks, Backendless, GameSparks, Playfab, or Parse
  • Experience implementing social networking features

How to apply:

Please include resume and examples of – or links to – your work and email to: pam@experimental.design
