Job Title HTML5 Game Developer
Job Category Flash / Actionscript / HTML5
Job Description Tag-taming, browser-beating, cross-platform gamer

We’re looking for a skilled and creative freelance HTML5 game developer to work on an original 2D browser game, taking the project from prototype through to build, testing and launch. You know how to express yourself in code as well as in words, documenting and communicating about your work clearly.

You have advanced HTML5 skills and experience developing with a variety of engines. You’ve already played a key role in developing several polished HTML5 games for mobile, tablet and/or desktop browsers. You maybe have a programming-related degree (or equivalent) and the ability to develop in several languages. You will be responsible for implementing and refining key features plus integrating with back-end systems. Above all, you must be ambitious, personable and enthusiastic about making great games – you’re probably a bit of a perfectionist; you likely play a lot of games too.

We’re a small, friendly team and you’ll be doing exciting work that stretches you and lets you develop your skills. Playniac’s games are earning us recognition worldwide, and you will be a key part of that success. Recent projects have won critical acclaim and been showcased UK-wide and in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. We have a comfortable central-London studio with top-end desks and ergonomic chairs, outdoor space and deck chairs, indoor and outdoor breakout areas, great coffee and a fully-equipped kitchen. We’re near to all of the bars and food places of Angel, and a short hop into the West End.

You are:
  • experienced in advanced HTML5 development and associated frameworks / engines with several HTML5 games in your portfolio;
  • knowledgeable about targetting all versions of Safari, Firefox and Chrome on iOS, Android, Chromebook, Windows and OSX;
  • able to create slick, polished, animated UIs that adapt beautifully to all target platforms;
  • experienced at integrating with back-end APIs, whether public or proprietary;
  • a developer with a minimum of 2+ years experience;
  • passionate about games and experienced in game design - your own experiments and game projects are considered a plus;
  • experienced in working with version control;
  • able to apply industry-standard development methodologies such as Agile;
  • a creative, talented coder who knows OOP and cares about elegant solutions, beautiful code and efficient design;
  • an excellent problem solver and planner;
  • in possession of excellent written and oral skills in English;
  • someone who can inspire and be inspired by working with our team
