Game Designer

Game Designer Job Opening

About Boston Productions, Inc
Boston Productions is a multimedia production company that produces videos, interactive programs, and immersive theater experiences for museums across the United States. We are looking for an experienced interactive developer to join our staff. Recent clients include: Turkey Hill Ice Cream, Hershey Chocolate Company, Smithsonian Institution, College Basketball Hall of Fame, and the International Spy Museum.

Description of the Position
Our work combines Flash, video, content management, and occasionally giant chocolate machines. We’re looking for someone to join our team with a broad range of technical abilities. This is someone who is comfortable with PHP and SQL programming, but also can get their hands dirty with Actionscript and Flash development.

As a developer, you will program touch-screen applications, websites, and other multimedia programs. You’ll also be key in building custom applications to allow institutions to manage their own content and allow the programs to grow over time. As a valued member of the production team you will participate in creative development, programming, prototyping software and hardware, and ensuring proper QC of deliverables.

The game desinger should have a broad knowledge of interactive technologies and in-depth software knowledge in Flash, Dreamweaver, and Photoshop and in technologies like XML, ActionScript, PHP, SQL, CSS, and HTML.

Helpful skills include familiarity with video encoding for the web and stand-alone applications, the ability to diagnose and solve basic computer problems, and the poise to deal with problems you may have never heard of before. We realize there are a lot of Flash animators and designers out there, as well as pure PHP coders, but this position is for a person who can work with both, and integrate them to create seamless experiences.

Excellent communication skills and the ability to collaborate are extremely important as a project team may include a producer, video editor, graphic designer, scriptwriter, and the interactive developer.

We don’t need you to know it all, but an adventurous spirit is important. We take on a lot of challenging projects that are different than anything we’ve done before, so if you like sticking to just web development, or don’t feel comfortable with integrating graphics and Actionscript, then this probably isn’t the job for you.
