ActionScript Developers!

Are you a ActionScript Developer? Do you have what it takes to....

Enough with that cheese, AudioBrush is looking for developers to add to it's arsenal. You'll be a part of the crew who's going to be making the next best music game for mobile and Facebook. Interested? Take a look at the spec

Essential skills are:

- OO Actionscript 3.0 (AIR)
- MVC Frameworks
- Flash Product Workflow
- Gaming Experience (preferably mobile)

Desireable skills:

- Knowledge of audio engineering/programming (frequency bands, FFT, etc)
- Facebook Graph API
- Knowledge of REST
- iOS / Android / Browser / Desktop experience
- Music games knowledge and understanding
- Platform dependant frameworks (eg. GameCenter, Push Notification etc)
- NodeJS
- Git (GitHub)
- Ant
- Efficient and Ecomonic effects (eg particle effects)

What you will be doing:

- What ever hours you like
- Google Hangouts with client and server developers
- Developing - of course, from your own computer, at home or wherever it is you work
- Workflow management over Trello - will keep you updated on everyone else and everyone else updated on what you're doing.

What do you get? Well it depends on your experience and what you will be capable of working on, you will be thrown in at the deep end, of course we will tell you how things work and get you up to speed. You will not be expected to sign contracts. We welcome anyone who already has a job and wants to be a part of AudioBrush in their evenings or weekends. Our main development times are 1PM - 4AM GMT+1 which I believe is 5AM - 8PM PST, Monday -> Sunday.

Most importantly you will be part of a great up-coming game and potentially be a part of something a lot, lot bigger.

Now that's all out the way, should you be interested then do send me an email or call and we can have a conversation about how we can proceed. We're extremely laid back so there is no need for formalities, just as long as your not in your pants when you're on call.

or if you like you can call (UK) ---> 01322 400 119

Progress Update

Hey crew, just an update on what's happening, AudioBrush, from a couple of days ago is back on full-time development - which is great!

Server enthusiast Jon Parsons has just put together the first build of the REST API which will be the core of the back-end so to speak. Before this AudioBrush was only using a rather primitive MySQL database as this is the extent of my personal server knowledge. Anyway the scale of this is pretty big, in it's current form being able to handle around 2mill users and around 20k con-current users - by the flick of a switch - literally, this scale can be made bigger by any increment. NICE!

So on the client side the code to get all this fancy new server stuff working is implemented just need to get it all tested and secure.

The development process of AudioBrush is no longer open to the public, but in a few weeks time this won't matter as you will all be able to grab your copy from the mobile stores!
