Description

Hello! Do you like Computer Games? We are the game studio PureMana producing Solar Crusaders which is a web based sandbox 2.5 D game that takes place in space. You can check it out at play.solarcrusaders.com and for more information visit www.solarcrusaders.com The game is currently in alpha.

Javascript & UI design: We are looking for a junior javascript developer.
The responsibilities and tasks will be based on your experience and knowledge level. If you are fluent in Javascript then you can work closely with our CTO to build game code. This is a great experience for you to be able to contribute to our project and have developed your own projects that you can share with future employers (if you don’t end up joining our team). You can also have your name in our games credits.

Some example projects

Leaderboard System:
Create a leaderboard system just like the one at wings.io, using what we have at sc-ui. Structure your project such that it is self contained, an example API would look like this:

addPlayer
removePlayer

The board could then re-order whenever "render" is called, but make sure to overload correctly. The value that would be sorted against will be player "currency" or "kills."

Admin Interface:
The admin interface will allow players to conduct administrative functions on their account (change e-mail, password reset, player group selection, billing info, etc.) It is separate from the core game engine and can be built using any html/css/nodejs platform.



We also have other tasks such as creating new ships, their layout and managing game assets, Playing, streaming and writing reviews for other games, managing social media, creating gifs, creating videos and images from current game play. This part just requires a love for computer games.

The position is remote. The position can be either full time or part time, based on your schedule. We also write awesome reference letters and if you are interested after you graduate there is a possibility of being hired.



Responsibilities

We would give you projects that you can work on at your own pace and schedule.

We have weekly group battles for our game. Ideally you would be able to attend.

Requirements

A desire to be involved and grow in our game studio. We are ideally looking for candidates that could work for us after you graduate. This is not a requirement, but a nice to have aspect.

Enjoy playing computer games!
