Report article RSS Feed [Paid] Now Hiring: Assistant C++ Programmer

In a last ditch effort to give SHIFT a chance to release, we are actively looking for a second programmer to help take the load of our lead programmer.

This is a PAID position. Pay rate will be based on completion of milestones. Actual numbers will be discussed upon contact.

We are currently looking for a Source Engine programmer who has experience with working with a team. Experience with a completed or large scale project is a plus.

The programmer will be responsible for completing basic HL2 modding tasks. They will report directly to the lead programmer on any tasks and will work on a separate code base and submit their work to the lead. There will be no access to SHIFT's vehicle source code.

This programmer MUST be able to import models into Source, handle UI and VGUI, work with custom particles and entities, be able to map and use custom entities, and work with AI. Networking and Shader experience a plus.

Please PM me here on ModDB. If we do not receive any programming assistance by August, SHIFT will be archived and be deemed cancelled until further notice.

seems to me, it's more of a Handyman, just coding related, instead of construction related, but thank god you're not dead.

I'd say the fact that it's paid makes up for it. It would be another story if it was just another mod team looking for somebody out there to do the dirty work for free.

While the job description extends further than actually just programmer its a pretty uninteresting offer. No specific numbers, and generally it seems the preposition is that you can't be trusted.

I don't think they are going to be paying them in thousands of dollars, but a basic wage, not like the person is going to die by spending 10 hours and losing 100$. I'm sure they will be mad but they will live.

This reads more like a threat than a requiting post.
