Blizzard Seeks Mac OS Help
9:18 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A new listing on Blizzard's employment page reveals they are currently looking for a Macintosh programmer to help out with their game titles. This would certainly be an exciting opportunity for any would-be Mac game maker to sign on with a very well-established company (to say the least!). Think you might have what it takes? Here are the requirements:

Blizzard Entertainment is looking for a very smart Macintosh programmer who has a passion for games. An ideal candidate would have a very strong knowledge with C/C++, as well as experience in Apple Game Sprockets and game related applications for the Mac OS.


  • A passion for Games and Mac Programming
  • A strong knowledge of C/C++ and Win32 APIs
  • Knowledge of Open GL and Apple Game Sprockets
  • Experience with OpenPlay, PowerPC or Intel x86 Assembly helpful
  • Knowledge of Code Warrior also a plus
  • Industry and Hobby Experience also a plus
  • The mention of OpenPlay is particularly exciting, as an endorsement of this open-source, cross-platform networking API by an industry giant such as Blizzard would prove that it is a viable alternative to the Windows-only DirectPlay API Microsoft encourages Wintel programmers to use.
    Check out the official listing for more details on submitting your resume, etc. They also have some tips available for programmers who are hoping to work there, a worthwhile read before you e-mail that resumé.
