Software Engineer / Programmer
The head and front of a programmer’s work is to transcript the game designer’s specifications. The transcription has to be efficient and has to fit well into the whole programme. C++ is the programming language that is mainly used in the gaming industry.
In addition to your programming skills and lots of experience, you should be very flexible and have a high ability to reason as you will constantly face new challenges that call for a complex solution. Depending on the project you may have to face different kinds of programming environments and platform-related specifications that you need to adapt to.
