2 New Internships: Nomuda Games

While Joe Chard isn't actually considering hiring Oscar Wilde, as this candid image might suggest, his company, Nomuda Games, is currently accepting applications for not 1 but 2 paid internships for summer 2010!

Some more information:

Company: Nomuda Games
Location: Charlottesville, VA
Position: Intern (Programming)
Compensation: $2000 - $2500 stipend
Commitment: ~40 hrs/wk for 11 - 12 weeks (flexible)

Description: Nomuda Games is seeking developers and graphic artists for internships in the summer of 2010. You will work on a small team to develop our pilot mobile title, to be released for beta testing at the end of the summer. This is an opportunity to use all your skills, all your creativity, to make a meaningful impact on the next wave of mobile gaming.

Working either in Java targeting Android phones or in Objective C targeting iPhones and iPod Touches, work as part of a small team (~3 incl. a dedicated artist) to create a story-driven game that is delivered in installments. Some design work has been completed for this game, but applicants should be comfortable discussing design aspects of the project, as this is a collective effort (and a good chance to contribute meaningfully to a commercial project). Applicants need to be driven, entrepreneurial individuals and will need to be comfortable working in an agile, dynamic environment as a functional member of this new studio.

Job Requirements:
  • Fluent in C++ and Java, willing to explore Cocoa Touch before summer; interest in web development is a plus
  • Pursuing a BS or Masters degree in Computer Science
  • Strong desire to work in the video game industry
  • Must have developed at least one complete video game (via a class project, club project, workshop, etc.)
  • Self-motivated, willing to do whatever it takes to meet deadlines
  • Entrepreneurial mindset, capable of dealing with ambiguity, tackling challenges, and taking on a great deal of responsibility as a key member of a growing company

  • Paid stipend for the summer
  • Free lunch Wednesday (and some other days too)
  • High degree of responsibility for building a commercially released game
  • Exposure to veteran entrepreneurs
  • Share of game profits
  • Inside track on full-time employment (with rapid promotion) in the future
Submission Details: Resumes are good; portfolios are better! A formal interview will be required of all applicants.
