Westlake is Hiring
12:19 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Suellen Adams of Westlake Interactive, the Mac and PS2 porting house responsible for such games as Unreal Tournament and Rune, has just passed along a short press release with some interesting information. It seems veteran Mac programmer Jesse Spears (who wrote the Harpoon series, among other things) is moving on to pursue his own projects -- which means Westlake is now looking for an experienced game programmer to add to the staff. Here's the release:

Jesse Spears is leaving Westlake Interactive immediately to pursue his own
projects. We at Westlake Interactive would like to wish Jesse well in his
new endeavors. Westlake was very pleased with his work on the award-winning
Escape from Monkey Island, and he will be sorely missed.

While we do not expect Jesse’s leaving to cause any significant impact to
our schedule beyond what has already announced, his departure does leave us
with an opening for another programmer.

“We will be accepting and reviewing resumes beginning immediately.” says
Westlake business coordinator, Suellen Adams. Candidates should submit their
resumes to Resumes submitted to any other e-mail
address will not be considered.

The ideal candidate will have experience with game programming and the Mac
in particular. Knowledge of C and C++ required, familiarity with Windows
APIs preferred. Our programmers are required to be very self-motivated and
able to work independently.

If you think you have the skills to join the most powerful and prolific game porting team we've ever seen, be sure to fire off that resume to Suellen immediately. Best of luck to Mr. Spears; we can't wait to see what he is working on.
