Hello fellow Construct community!
Because I can't post links yet, here's some text links that you can copypasta into your browser and check out:
So I've made some changes to this post; most notably about compensation. This is now a paid position, and we will compensate on completion of services (once the bugs and coding is fixed), percentage of royalties, or a combination there-of. We will negotiate a deal before any contracts are signed.
If you are interested in taking on this position, please provide a resume and a portfolio of your work, with past Construct 2 games that you have completed.
To break it down, we have been struggling to find a sweet programmer that loves to program and isn't a complete flake. We've been through all that jazz for the last... um... I don't know... dozen months? And up to this point, we have yet to find someone with a good skill set that is passionate about what they do. To add to that statement, I know that not every programmer we have come across has been as into our games as we are, and I don't want to hold that against you.
So I want to break down the position that we have and want to fill for the next couple of months, and hopefully beyond. Here's the deal.
Who we are.
AdaptivElite, LC is a limited liability company established in Michigan, US, since July of 2011. There is a total of five of us active with two extra contributors, and a lot of people that have passed through since we started. We want to make original IP and create fun and exciting old-school style games that capture the heart of early gaming history as we work our way up to bigger and bolder projects.
What we are doing.
We have been working on several games, with our most recent being Pro Janitor Police, a fast-paced 2D action/beat-em-up/platformer. We have high hopes about this game as we have been tirelessly trying to promote and market the IP and brand as well as make it a fun and captivating game, much in the style of Mega Man and Double Dragon of the early Nintendo days. We also have a fat slate of new ideas we want to start working on after we polish and play test the crap out of Pro Janitor Police.
Who we are looking for.
To get to the point, we need an experienced programmer that wants to grow with our team. Someone who isn't afraid to get their feet wet and work realistic hours in hopes of getting out of the 9-5 and joining us in an adventure of a lifetime. Yes, we want somebody that is funny, excited about life, wants to make freaking sweet games, and generally be a bad-a$$ mofo with us.
- Problem Solver
- Works well with a Team (Mandatory!)
- Can be okay with strange working hours, as we are all over the country
- Has access to the personal or business version of Construct 2, and has or can acquire Dropbox and Skype
- Portfolio and Resume
- Can shoot laser beams from their eyes
- Likes (good and/or bad) Chuck Norris jokes
What we need you for.
Because we like programmers! And also because we feel that we can grow, not only as a company, but as a team, with great minds and people that have a passion for games and think indies are awesome!
But for now, we need help debugging and making our game, Pro Janitor Police, nice and squeaky clean with all the bells and whistles we want! We will be selling once it's finalized, and as I said, we missed our initial release deadline and need some help to finish and finalize the game.
Once Pro Janitor Police is complete, we have another game we are working on and plan to release on Black Friday, and that is coming up quick!
The whole compensation thing.
We have distributors, Marketing and PR teams ready to help us promote and distribute our game world-wide. We can do paid work on completion, a percentage of royalties, or a combination of both.
On the other hand, (and this is all within reason, of course) if you have programming skills and want to jump on some non-game related contract work, let us know. But that's another post for another forum.
What we really pride ourselves on is if you have an idea and want to make a game, as a company, we think that everybody should have a chance to prove themselves. Step up to the plate, and pitch to us, and we can come together with the resources we have and help make that game! That's what we are doing here with Pro Janitor Police; it was an idea that our lead 3D artist wanted to make, and we did what we could to make this game a reality!
I really think that companies are missing that these days; if you care about us, we care about you. We obviously have some games in the pipeline, but I feel that if you have a great game idea that you want to make, we can come together as a team and make it happen!
Thanks for reading!
