Junior or Intermediate Programmer


Dinosaur Polo Club is on the lookout for more programmers! The recent release of Mini Motorways has been a huge success for us so we’ve been hard at work supporting it. Between that, Mini Metro, and some more exciting stuff down the line, we’ve got a lot of work on our plate. That’s where you come in!

Ideally you’ve had 1-3 years of industry experience making games in Unity or Unreal, preferably professionally or highly-polished hobby projects. You’ll be joining a supportive team with senior programmers offering guidance and mentorship.

Tasks and responsibilities:

  • Implementing game features and systems, with some direction and oversight from senior programmers.
  • Regularly take part in code reviews, both offering and responding to feedback from your peers.
  • Liaise with the art and design departments to ensure robust understanding of implementation details.
  • Be comfortable in a team environment, regularly collaborating with and supporting your fellow team-members.

  • Annual remuneration will depend on your experience, and starts at NZ$50k for juniors and NZ$65k for intermediates.
  • Annual training budget of NZ$7k. This covers NZGDC in New Zealand, GCAP in Melbourne, and GDC in San Francisco, or can be tailored to your preferences.
