Games Jobs - Programming - UK & Europe

Job Title Unity 3D C# Engineer
Job Category Mobile / iOS / Android,UI / Front End
Job Description We make award winning, super-polished sports games for mobile. We lovingly craft our code and graphics to perfection. We're growing our team and are on the hunt for talented, passionate coders. Come join us!

We're looking for a range of games developers from a strong junior, through mid to senior. We build on the Unity 3D engine, placing significant emphasis on the code: design patterns, SOLID Principles, peer reviews... We also have a growing Cloud presence so if high-volume serverless is your thing then get in touch.

Skills Summary

  • C# and .NET Framework
  • UX (ideally Unity 3D or other)
  • Git (or equivalent VCS)
  • Agile / Lean

    Nice to haves:
  • Java (Android)
  • Objective-C (iOS)
  • Free-to-play game dev
  • Maths / Physics / Networking

The Studio
Yakuto was founded in 2014 with the release of our debut title: Table Tennis Touch (Unity 3D, C#, Objective-C). We were awarded Apple's coveted Editors' Choice and promptly flew to the top of the iOS paid chart worldwide. For a short while, we usurped Minecraft as the UK's #1 paid app!

Since then we've grown, picked up another Editors' Choice, an inaugural Google Play award and launched our first free-to-play title: Darts of Fury. This time we rocketed to the top of the free charts, at one stage collecting 5 new users per second. Darts of Fury is now one of Apple's "Games of 2017".

The Team
We're a team of nine, with big growth plans. Our founding team have backgrounds in both Film VFX and Enterprise Software Development. These skills drive the company, instilling the highest standards. From a coding perspective, we take the time to write code well. This is reflected in our games. Our players consistently award us 5 stars.

The Job
This is a permanent position in an incredibly exciting, fast moving field. Every task you undertake will have a direct influence on the game, will make our players happy or will further your knowledge - hopefully all three. You'll work alongside our CTO and will be instrumental to the team and to the growth of the company.

The Game
We are a code-centric studio. Our principal language is C#. A strong knowledge of C# and the .NET Framework is essential. If you don't have experience with Unity (or similar) we'll trade that for strong and demonstrable UX skills, but the C# is essential.

We customise Unity with our own native plugins, from image loading to IAP handling. Native experience in iOS and/or Android is beneficial but not essential.

Our build scripts are written in Node.js (JavaScript and TypeScript). Experience with Node.js is advantageous but again not essential (we also use Node.js in the Cloud).

Our sports games have significant maths and physics elements. If you've experience in simulations then we'd be very interested to hear from you.

The Cloud
We build on the Google Cloud Platform. We came for Firebase but stayed for Cloud Functions, App Engine, Datastore and BigQuery. Any experience of GCP and/or Firebase can only be a good thing. It's not essential unless you're positioning yourself as a Cloud engineer.

The Tooling
Having the right tool for the job makes the strong even stronger. Developers each have a JetBrains Toolbox subscription, so: ReShaprer, Rider, WebStorm, PyCharm, IntelliJ etc. Life's too short for inferior IDEs.

If your passion for coding and technology matches ours then get in touch now! Step one is a friendly Skype call so you've nothing to lose!
