Hairy Heart is a small independent game studio based in Glasgow. We are beginning work on a new short-form narrative game about a giant who is lonely and looking for love. The game will use cutting edge photogrammetry and motion capture along with hand-made puppets and models to create a unique fairly-tale world.
We mostly work with freelancers but are now trying to grow the studio by bringing on more permanent staff to help us complete bigger projects. We also do work-for-hire across a lot of areas including VR, console games, interactive films, museum guides and more. We only work with clients and projects which align with our core principles of fairness, kindness and sustainability.
We are looking for a friendly person who can make games in Unity. You should be comfortable with some of the following activities:
Coding in C#
Importing 3D models and animations
Laying out UI screens
Setting up control schemes
Implementing sound effects
Creating exciting particle systems
Using source control (probably git)
Making builds for different platforms
Testing and improving performance
It would also be super cool if you:
Know about Unreal
Have made something in VR
Are interested in folk tales
Think puppets are neat
Know what a build system is
Understand photogrammetry or have done some of it
Want to write project proposals
Have lots of wild game ideas
Undergraduate degree in computer science, game development, or similar. Or equivalent experience demonstrated with a portfolio.
This is is a 6-month contract with intention to extend to a permanent position. Pay will be based on a full-time salary of £22,000-£26,000 (depending on experience).
