Have more to offer than just your coding ability? Like the idea of full system ownership with the safety net of a talented team to collaborate with? Want to be given the freedom to focus 100%?
Why Goose Byte
Do you wish that you could spend your work hours actually making games? We're offering that low-overhead-indie-team-productivity along with all of the stability and I-can-sleep-at-night big studio perks.
We're cultivating an inclusive, high performance, talent dense team where collaboration is key and we won't be tolerating talented jerks. High integrity is important and we nurture an environment built around the concepts of freedom, inclusivity, respect, sustainability, and trust.
Our senior programmer would enjoy a perfect blend of creative and technical challenges. The role encourages taking ownership of topics of interest and existing expertise, all while collaborating and supporting other developers. They will be trusted to take care of conception, design and even some art for complex gameplay systems which will push the player experience to the next level.
Our First Project
For our first project we’re making an open world survival crafting game that focuses on exploration and creativity over violence and combat, finding a unique space in a crowded genre to bring something exciting and different to players.
We’re creating our own IP, building on our love of science fiction, worldbuilding, and unconventional games, and as an indie studio we have full creative freedom and control.
Using our experience from leading AAA open world and action adventure games we’re thinking practically and pragmatically about our choices, from technology, to scope of features, and where to place our bets for quality and innovation.
There are lots of challenges ahead but we are setting our own ambitions and expectations, leveraging our scale to be decisive, move quickly, and make the game better every day.
You are definitely a match if you are excited by these opportunities…
Get On Our Radar
We value diverse backgrounds and fresh perspectives. We hire based on future potential, not only your past experiences.
For the senior programmer we'd expect that you have opinions on how to (and how not to) create big gameplay systems, optimise production ready code and have collected your fair share of 'debugging nightmare' stories.
The main technologies we use at the moment are:
If you're already got skills here it's a great bonus!
If you made it here and this sounds like a great fit for you, then what are you waiting for!
We're on a mission to deliver premium, focused, accessible gaming experiences that can be enjoyed solo, and which play even better with friends. We're passionate about offering players unique experiences, so experimentation and fast iteration is important to us.
We're hard at work on building a talent-dense team of game developers who put players at the center of everything they do. If you're a developer this resonates with, we hope you'll consider joining us.
Goose Byte offers big studio stability with indie studio freedom and ambition.
