Senior Game Programmer

Department: Programming
Location: New York, NY

Arkadium, a premier developer, publisher, and distributor of casual, social, Windows, and mobile games, has a unique career growth opportunity for a qualified senior game programmer to lead development on games using Microsoft technologies in New York City.

This is an amazing opportunity to:

  • Lead a passionate and creative team.
  • Create stand out, polished products for millions of players.
  • Work in a creative, collaborative environment while constantly improving your skills.
  • Contribute your own game designs for new games and leverage Arkadium's full capabilities to create and release them.
  • Share your own depth and breadth of experience, as well as research new technologies and processes to help all programmers be better.
  • Work with a company that has the stability and resources of a big player, with the spirit and flexibility of a start-up.
  • Be an active part of the development and design process. Have meaningful input on your game's direction.
  • Champion high standards in architecture, patterns, reusable code, and best practices.
  • Leverage your knowledge and expertise in game programming to help guide all game programming practices at Arkadium.

What you need, to be successful in this role:

  • You'll be working with people who are passionate about creating engaging, fun games, so you should be too! We’ll be counting on you to lead a team from project inception to completion.
  • We’re looking for a true leader in game development, so at least 5 years of previous game programming experience, with at least 3 shipped titles, is a must.
  • A solid foundation in object oriented programming is essential for writing polished, bug-free games. Strong knowledge of C# and .NET 4.5 will go a long way.
  • Coding down to the metal is crucial for today’s high-performance games. Low-level programming fundamentals and experience with the DirectX/OpenGL graphics pipeline are a huge plus.
  • Modern games need to run well on a wide range of devices. If you are skilled in optimizing gameplay and graphics code, you’ll help our games reach the widest audience.
  • Great developers keep up with a wide breadth of technologies. Knowledge of XAML, Actionscript 3, C++, Unity, or Windows 8 development would help you go that extra mile.
  • Today’s games are all about connecting players, so it’s more important than ever to have experience working with backend services such as the Facebook API, Game Center, or Xbox LIVE.
  • We hire great programmers who enjoy working closely together in building awesome games. If you are ambitious and are looking to work with an experienced team of software engineers, you will feel right at home with us.
  • At Arkadium, we love to celebrate our success. If you take pride in your work, you'll fit right in!

In addition to being a unique career opportunity, we offer:

  • Competitive base salary and full benefits
  • Work-life balance
  • A culture of support and team camaraderie
  • Offices near the Shake Shack!
  • Annual company amusement park and beach days
  • Summer Fridays
  • An opportunity for your own game ideas to come to life, with profit sharing
