Do you want to use your game development skills to help children learn? Our learning games team (www.motionmathgames.com) creates delightful, award-winning games that help students master math and develop a positive relationship with intellectual challenge. We’re a tight-knit, passionate team often greeted by cheers and applause when we walk into classrooms – we’ve even signed autographs for our kid fans. Our engineering team is looking to hire a Senior Software Engineer to head up cross-platform development of new games and expansion of existing titles.

The impact you’ll have:

  • Lead architect of our Unity codebase: You’ll evolve and expand our library of education and game components that underlie our suite of mobile and web games in multiple genres.
  • Lead Unity developer: We’re a small team, so your focus is implementation: adding new features and game mechanics to existing titles, bringing new game concepts from prototype to polished final product, iteratively refining student interactions to maximize learning and fun – and fixing bugs, of course!
  • Mentor game engineers on a growing team. If you prefer not to be a manager, that’s fine, but we expect you to help others and set a great example for the entire team.

What we’re looking for:

  • Passion for helping children learn.
  • Ability to work from our San Francisco office, located next to Montgomery BART.
  • 10+ years working in the game industry, 3+ years working on the Unity platform. (Note: we may also be building games in HTML or other platforms, but the majority will be in Unity.)
  • A portfolio of diverse, high-quality, cross-platform games.
  • Ability to discuss the merits of common game patterns and reusable architecture.
  • Experience creating modular classes and services for reuse across diverse titles.
  • Comfort taking ownership of myriad responsibilities on a small, entrepreneurial, collaborative, Agile team.
  • Interest in joining a team that is close knit, collaborative and fast. In the past, we’ve added new modes to existing games and scouted new games in 2 weeks, ported full games in 4-6 weeks, and made entirely new games in 3-6 months.

We’d also love to see:

  • Scrummaster experience.
  • Mobile experience.
  • Passion for improving the production pipeline.
  • Experience optimizing for performance and memory footprint.
