We're looking for a Unity Developer!

We've got a variety of hot projects in production right now that we're building in Unity.  Some of them are Virtual Reality apps, some are Interactive Mobile apps, but each of them needs you to bring them to life.

We're looking for someone to join the team who is a creative thinker, but a responsible coder.  Someone who takes pride in clean work and clever solutions.  We don't mind if you get complicated, as long as you simplify the user experience.  

Of course we wouldn't mind if you have some related programming skills as well, so these skills are always a plus:

  • C#
  • C++
  • Python
  • MySQL

The position is with our team in our office in Downtown LA.  We've got our eyes on a long term relationship, but would like to make this first project an evaluation to make sure we're a match for each other.
