What we're looking for
The Glory Society is a worker-owned and operated cooperative that is looking for another programmer to join our remote-only team and help us ship that thing we are working on.
We will be accepting applications until Monday, June 21st, 2021.
We would expect you to be entering this role with a good working knowledge of Unity (more details below).
This will be a collaborative project, and we will expect you to incorporate ideas from outside your discipline (within reason) and engage with ideas through a risks/benefits lens. We will not expect you to manage other programmers, make your own detailed production schedules, do your own QA, or engineer a game from scratch.
You know Unity well - you know what it wants to do and what it doesn’t. You understand the Unity approach to cameras and animation. You're pretty dang good at reading code. You’ve shipped at least two Unity games (even if they’re quite small).
You're better at the second half of projects than you are at the first half. You're interested in learning new architectures, or seeing how someone's implemented a familiar one. Either way, you like to learn, and you like to solve problems. You like to tidy up. It’s important to you that all the things are in the right places.
You’re a good communicator. If someone asks you “Can we do _________?” you usually answer in one of the following ways:
When you don’t know how to do something, you research it and make a plan. Most of these plans are good, but you’re open to feedback and ideas from people outside your discipline. You clearly understand what problem we’re all trying to solve before getting to work on a detailed solution.
Lastly, you are good at interpersonal communication, have patience for others, and are generally cool to be around.
