Oh wow. Not qualified myself, but looking at that job description... you'll be working with legends and creating a new legend at the same time. And you're getting paid for it too.
Man we've been waiting hmmm twenty years now for a sequel?

Is it true that Matrix Games does not have the source code for the SPWAW game anymore? And if it's not would there be any chance at you taking a look at the old code and fixing the unresponsive artillery screen? Maybe you could find something useful for the new game too in the process.

From what I have read SPWAW was compiled with Watcom C/C++ that is now also available for free as Open Watcom C/C++. In addition if a DOS enviroment is needed a PC emulator could be used.


In any case I hope you will find your programmer and can finish the new game.

Btw, is this new SP meant to be commercial or just free game (like SPWAW)?

Location
Remote working possible. US time zone an advantage, though an alternative is to be located in Epsom office in UK.

For some reason I don't think being 13 hours and 30 minutes or 16 hours and 30 minutes ahead of US time zones will help with respect to being remote. Bummer!

Salary
Negotiable on application.

I am not expensive to run.

Responsibilities
Supporting 2by3 to develop Steel Tigers using the Archon engine.
Engine development.
Tools and pipeline support and development.

Required Skills
Strong C/C++.
Excellent problem solving.
Passion for wargames.
Able to work well with external teams.

No problem on this one.

Useful Additional Skills
HLSL shader programming.
Tools development.

I have built a few tools for SPWAW as well as a couple of other games,e.g. ATF series, HLSL not strong there at all.


Applications Process
The closing date for applications is 31st May 2017.

If you are interested in this roll please contact career@slitherine.co.uk with your CV and covering letter.


[color=#0000CC]All interesting, but time zone alone is a huge issue.

SP has always been a game well worth paying for. We shell out hard-earned dough for much less worthy games.
