Employment Type Full Time
Minimum Experience Manager/Supervisor

Kano (www.kanoapps.com) is looking for a seasoned game developer with experience shipping at least 1 Unity game to work on our new title FUBAR: Just Give'r.  


You enjoy solving complex device and game platform problems where you can exercise your practical technical knowledge. You also effectively collaborate with others to provide technical expertise on identified issues.


As a small team where the code you write gets deployed fast, you’ll be responsible for development, testing, and code quality.  This role requires a high level of ownership over the product code and working closely with the team building it as their lead.  You'll also be working with the creative and product teams to plan new features and prioritize problems and opportunities.


We offer flexible hours to accommodate real lives (the ones outside of the office too!), a good-natured and dedicated group of peers, the opportunity to make an impact in the work you do, and the chance to work in beautiful Victoria, BC (this position is open to remote applicants).


 

Your background should include:


  • 5+ years development with high-level languages
  • 3+ years of development with Unity or a similar game engine, with at least 1 shipped product
  • Leading a developer team and/or mentoring developers
  • Product-centric development: you think about the end result
  • Proven ability to think strategically as well as recent hands on programming experience
  • You have created applications that serve thousands of people at a time with ease
  • Strong understanding of OO and modern software design principles
  • A strong desire to build something that people really want


It'd be a big plus if you have:


  • Experience shipping social or mobile applications (iOS, Android, Facebook, etc)
  • Back-end or full stack development experience
  • Experience with AWS or other cloud services
  • Working knowledge or experience with Unix/Linux
  • Continuous integration and automated testing experience
