If you’re a programmer with a few years experience coding for the Xbox 360 or the PS3 then you might want to check out this job posting by Bethesda Games. Bethesda is hiring experienced programmers for an unnanounced game. The posting has appeared on the website of Zenimax Media, Bethesda’s parent company, and the application requirements are as follows:
At least 5 years of game development experience with multiple titles shipped
Extensive experience programming and optimizing for the Xbox 360 and PS3
Experience with DirectX 11 a plus
P0assion for making GREAT games, and being part of a GREAT team
Ability to contribute innovative ideas towards all aspects of game development
Must create amazing things with minimal oversight
Experience playing Bethesda Game Studios games a plus
The posting also mentions that the project for which they are hiring will be next-generation. This doesn’t come as that big of a surprise, as Sony has already implied that they will be announcing the PS4 later this month and the Xbox 720 will no doubt follow quickly. So it only makes sense that many developers are expanding teams to try and get ahead of the pack for the new console generation.
