Looking to contract game dev
Hey. I’m from omgpop.com and I’m looking for some talented souls to hire as game devs.
Not sure who we are? Well, check out some of our existing games on Kongregate (like Draw My Thing, Pool, Balloono, among others).
All our games are multiplayer, and we have the API and documentation so you can develop for our platform. We also have a super talented Art Team that will provide assets .
If you have the skills, we’d consider contracting you to develop a great game for us (using our API, and art assets we provide). We offer competitive rates and excellent incentives for you to make an awesome game.
We have a team of existing developers, they are super busy, but they’ll be able to answer specifics about our platform and stuff.
So, if you’re interested, send me a message with your BEST work. I don’t care if you aren’t great at Art, we have a team for that, but you’ve gotta know your stuff when it comes to games, and flash. Having an understanding of networking between players is a huge plus.
Here’s a sample job posting from our site for a position at our HQ. While we’re not looking to hire any additional full time devs (unless you develop for iphone/mobile platoform), you can use it as a guideline for the kind of skills we look for.
We are seeking a rockstar game developer to join our team. Our offices are in SoHo, Manhattan, NYC.

Please include examples of games produced (that we can play).
Look forward to hearing from you!
