Whatboy Games is an indie developer based in the UK but fully open to remote work. We launched our debut game, Trials of Fire, last year. We're now working on our 2nd title...and its looking (and playing) awesome!
The problem is we need a seriously good multiplayer programmer to make it genuinely world-class.
We're looking for someone who can take on all of the server-side / back-end code work and also fit into our small but hugely ambitious team and fill out the technical leadership of the studio as we grow.
Right now we're a team of 3. We all worked in senior roles together on all of the Batman: Arkham games at Rocksteady Studios so we know what it takes to make massively ambitious, super complex games...but we also know the toll that kind of development takes on us as humans.
Working with Whatboy is about making great games, but also making the time to take care of yourself and those close to you. We care much more about outcomes than hours worked. If you're working for a massive studio, doing great work but feeling like you could use more trust and support from your studio, maybe Whatboy is where you should be.
At Whatboy, here's what your day-to-day would look like:
No doubt you've got extreme technical skills, but here's what we're hoping you've got specifically:
We're a small team of 3, so welcoming a 4th person to Whatboy is a BIG deal for us. Here's the kind of qualities in a person that we're looking for:
