  • Experience with game engines (Unity, Unreal, Frostbite, etc)
  • Strong 3D math skills
  • Some experience with Ruby is an asset
  • Familiarity with the asset pipeline (file format import, conversion, etc.)
  • Passion around gaming and game development
  • The ability to be scrappy and build quick prototypes to prove/disprove ideas
  • Nice to have experience extending the Unity Editor
  • Experience with Objective C/Swift or Java would be a plus

Here's a bit more context on the projects our team is tackling:
