The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild ports and publishes a variety of quality indie games to all of the major consoles. We’re looking to add another engineer to our team for the short-term to port Unity games to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One/Series X|S, and PlayStation 4/5.

Requirements

  • Extensive knowledge of Unity - 3+ years of professional Unity experience
  • Strong C# background - demonstrable prior work and/or project experience
  • Experience with console development and/or porting - launched at least one game to multiple consoles where you worked on the console-specific code
  • Experience and understanding of how the major consoles operate from an end-user perspective
  • Strong background in debugging, profiling, and performance analysis
  • Familiarity with commonly used source control, such as git, SVN, etc
  • Great communication skills and experience working with several other people across multiple teams
  • Good at maintaining online presence during the workday to coordinate with others over Slack
  • Experience with Trello or similar task management software

This position is for a 3-month contract (1099-NEC), at $38/hour. After 3 months, depending on performance and current company needs, there will be a potential to join QAG as a full-time employee with benefits.

QAG is a remote-only company, but being based in the greater-Seattle area is preferred. You will need to use your own computer for development, but Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation development kits will be provided for you.

It is important to us to hire a diverse staff, so please don't hesitate to reach out!

About The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild

We've always been indie, and we want to give indie studios the deals they deserve. The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild was founded in 2011 and received global critical acclaim for our early titles, 'The Bridge' and 'Tumblestone.' In 2019, we broadened our focus to collaborating with indie developers publishing on PC and consoles to provide opportunities on every platform available. Recently publishing 'Roundguard' and 'Breakpoint' further expanded our library, adding twin-stick action and rpg-puzzlers to our catalogue. Look forward to award-winning games 'Sail Forth' and 'Saturnalia' releasing from QAG later this year.
