Senior Unity Developer (Remote Contract)
Duelit — Company based in Ney York, New York, United States
via Remotely Awesome Jobs
—————This is a %100 remote position—————
Duelit is a venture-backed mobile skill gaming platform that allows users to bet with their friends on the games they play. Our app allows people to compete with each other playing simple games like replicas of Candy Crush, Tetris, Beer Pong etc. all within one app. What's special with our app is that we send the winner their money via PayPal! We also organize eSports tournaments, where many users can compete to win a big cash prize. We are a small team, and work 100% remotely!
We are currently looking for an exceptionally experienced and talented Unity Expert, that will work with our unity games, in order to increase their performance by fixing memory leaks, racing conditions, reducing asset sizes, lowering CPU usage, fixing any lags, and any optimization that is required.
In this role, you will get to be in the front-lines of an early-stage venture-backed startup! You will have the autonomy to make your own decisions regarding the unity code that lives in our Android and iOS apps, and grow with the company.
- The contract is based on the deliverable, not time
- Part-time or full-time is ok
- If you perform well and want to join our team, we will discuss how we can work together continuously
Our App Architecture:
We have a very unconventional architecture, and therefore is unlike any project you worked with. We have both iOS and Android mobile apps, but the apps are either native nor unity apps. The native code and Unity code work together, and therefore requires a higher skill set, and ability to work with the iOS and Android teams to be successful.
We have hired 5 separate Unity devs in this company and only one was successful as he was the only one that thought creatively and didn’t try doing classic solutions like all other Unity projects. If you are not going to be open to a challenge, don’t have amazing problem-solving skills, won’t look for creative solutions, won’t be open-minded, and try to do things the way you always have done in other projects, please do not apply, as you will almost certainly fail.
