Programmer

  • Location: Dundee, UK
  • Career stage: Experienced

Ambitious Junior Gameplay Programmer working with Guerilla Tea in Dundee, Scotland. Responsibilities include REST API usage and development, rUDP server implementation, front end development ranging from GUI to animation to networking and direct communication with clients and third parties.

With a range of interests surrounding games development I have also worked with front and back end web development, server programming, mobile development and use of cross platform SDK's such as Marmalade.

My past experience within Abertay Students' Association and working for Abertay Union has given me a strong set of secondary skills such as working as part of a team, leading a team/management, public speaking and coherently expressing my opinions particularly when it conflicts with a view held by the group.
