Turbo Button is a fully remote Indie game studio based on the US west coast. We’ve developed a reputation for making weird, polished, charming-as-heck VR games like Floor Plan and Along Together. Our team designs and codes for VR from the ground up with each project. We strive to respect the time and attention of our players by creating games filled with memorable moments and characters.

Our team is currently seeking a Generalist Game Developer to help us build new content for Floor Plan 2. This is a contract position through at least February 2022.

We’re a tiny team without dedicated programmers or designers - we treat them as the same position - so we need someone who is comfortable working in both disciplines. If you’re a designer who likes to write code, or a programmer who can jump in and contribute to level design, this is the role for you! 

We are looking for someone unafraid to push the boundaries and eager to learn new things. We value potential, creativity, and a willingness to learn and are open to discussing long-term placement if we find the right candidate.

Responsibilities

  • Collaborate and iterate with the other designer/programmers on designs
  • Implement puzzles / levels by whiteboxing, scripting, and writing your own code
  • Communicate with artists and integrate assets to bring them to life

Skill / Experience Requirements

  • Comfortable with C# programming / scripting
  • Shipped at least 1 game with Unity, or 3+ years of Unity experience
  • Strong communication and writing skills
  • Experience working with source control software (such as P4, Git, Plastic, etc)

Work Requirements

  • Feedback and meetings typically occur during the hours of 9am-5pm PST, Monday-Friday, so availability during these hours is preferred
  • Must be able to work remotely

Not required, but it’s great if you also have...

  • Experience with VR and/or console development
  • Experience working with other designers
  • Experience with making / editing shaders
  • Experience with optimizing for low-spec hardware constraints

Wondering if you should apply even if you don’t check off all the requirement boxes? If you have some of the skills and this sounds like a job you would enjoy, you should absolutely apply. We would love to hear from you!

About Floor Plan 2

Floor Plan 2 is a comedy adventure inspired by escape rooms, packed with more puzzles than you can fit in an elevator.

On your first day of work, the boss sends you on an errand to retrieve a lost treasure that will turn the company's fortunes around. And good news: it's somewhere in the building! Just use the elevator down the hall. Oh, and by the way, each floor is a gateway to another world, nobody speaks your language, and time and space are fluid.
