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. 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.
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
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.
