    [CONTRACT/PAID] Experienced Unreal Programmer(s) / Software Engineer(s)

    UNREAL PROGRAMMER(S) / SOFTWARE ENGINEER(S)

    We are looking for a experienced game designer / game developer for an original video-game project. Ideally, no more than one or two persons (not interested in large developing team).

    This project has been in-the-works for about 1 & 1/2 years and has changed a great deal since conceptualized. It is now a full 3D Sci-Fi isometric title, stylized in the likes “Transistor”. Strong and very versatile team of 13 individuals are set and yet we have gone through many programmers.

    Some ideas of what this job may entail but not limited too possessing;

    • Fluent in C++ and C#
    • Unreal Engine 4
    • Git (Source Control)
    • Java
    • Unity Engine
    • Hansoft
    • HTML and XML
    • Microsoft Office
    • Jira
    • Python
    • Perforce (Source Control)
    • Visual Studio 2010-2015
    • DirectX
    • Object Oriented
    • Agile Development

    We have a tight deadline and we are looking for an individual (or individuals) who are proficient and work well under pressure. Understand and execute proper business ideologies and mannerisms, looking to jump right in and create something worthwhile. Ground work has been laid in the engine from previous developers.

    Will need to work closely with entire team and make frequent weekly meetings via Skype, Phone and E-mail. MUST BE ACCESSIBLE

    **ALL overlapping experience in game design, 3D modeling, VFX (Visual Effects) and or any other skill set(s) are welcomed!**

    We use Bitrix24 software for team management & a company perforce server has been set for developing workflow.

    This is a “Work For Hire” position based on a distinct compensation agreement regarding crowd funding. Protection of intellectual property is of high concern for company and for the individuals working on the project.

    A NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) will have to be signed before further details can be given to likely candidates. Also, time crunch given project will be pushed on Kickstarter so interviews will be held ASAP. If you are interested please do not hesitate to reach out!

    Thank you for your time and look forward to speaking with you!

    "This is a “Work For Hire” position based on a distinct compensation agreement regarding crowd funding."

    Does that mean royalty/percentage based instead of flat fee or fixed rate? If so, please change the thread prefix from [CONTRACT/PAID] to ROYALTY.

      If your method of paying people is by crowdfunding alone, you should probably think twice about it before moving further. (at least that's how it reads from the content of your post)
      I'm saying this because while you really seem to ask a lot from the ones you'd want as part of your team, your strategy to pay them sounds very unprofessional at best.

      Paying Royalty from crowd founding it's almost impossible in normal terms. Crowdfunding is mainly about getting money to finance the project forward (the reason people pay for that is to see it finished), not to pay debts (debts people pledging haven't been part of nor they have to pay for you). What do you do if crowdfunding takes longer, what if you can't secure crowdfunding or what if you don't get enough funds, what would everybody get then, how is the project going to move forward and meet everything the crowd funding campaign promised? Probably over 80% of the games applying for crowd funding don't actually manage to succeed and these are games that are mainly asking for the lowest price they can afford to only make the game.
      I'm not against people trying to do what they can to succeed but please stop using crowdfunding as incentives, there almost zero chances you could finance a project by crowdfunding only, if you need to pay back debts gathered before the campaign.

        This isn't a contract or paid position, re-label it.

        Waste of time to read it, it's a deceptive heading.

                  Hello Allar,

                  This is a contract/paid position, not for royalty position. If I would change the prefix to royalty (meaning applicant would be getting royalties) that would be misleading. Legally I cannot discuss terms of individual contracts to public openly. Only qualified candidates have a signed NDA, as well as went through the interview process.

                    Hello Eudrea,

                    Legally, I am unable to discuss in further detail to open public about contracts. If you would like to know more information and are qualified then please send previous work experience & examples of your work to Info@StudioDaisho.com. After a NDA has been signed, and you have been in the interview process is when and only when these terms can be discussed, again legally.

                    We appreciate your thoughts, concerns & opinions, but if you're uninterested in this position then there is no need to express your disconcern, or legal advice for our post & our contracts.

                    Thank you,

                      Hello Mikepurvis,

                      This is a contract/paid position. Studio Daisho LLC does not share the same expressed view point or opinions. They are of your own. Re-labeling it would be misleading as this is what this position entails, a contract.

                      Thank you for your concern & opinions,

                          Yes, you can. You may choose not to -- that's very different from what you can "legally" do. (Not that this is legal advice.)

                          Anyway, someone reading this thread may draw certain conclusions about why you've "gone through many programmers." If you'd like to actually attract qualified candidates, you may want to address that concern, which currently seems like a big red flag.

                            It's the based on a distinct compensation agreement regarding crowd funding that means, this is not paid. If you could pay, you would just have said it because that would attract more people, instead you are being cryptic, which is stupid because you are trying to attract programmers who for the most part are extremely smart and detail oriented. The NDA is for your content, work done for, and IP. Trying to hide the contract terms in an NDA is extremely telling of itself, if it was a good deal you would be sharing it.

                            Why did all your programmers leave?

                              To anyone reading this:

                              If you have to sign an NDA to get general terms for a contract, run away, run far away.

                              Exceptions to this are government contracts, those can be (but not frequently) completely different.

                              If someone wants to talk to you before discussing terms, that is one thing, but never agree to any legal paper that encourages pay secrecy for any company in the United States.
