Just as a heads up, Firstborn is looking for a senior-level AS3 developer for our NY offices. You can find more information about this position here.
We’re still saying to ourselves “I can’t believe we’re looking for a Flash developer”. Truth be told, while Firstborn has established its reputation for visual interface acuity in the heydays of Flash-based websites, the bulk of our target platforms now are HTML and (native) mobile.
When you look at problems in a framework-agnostic way, however, Flash still solves some challenges in a faster and better way than the alternatives. With that said, we’re hiring for a very specific project, and one I’m very excited about; it is a “sister” project to the one I’m currently working on. It’s a commercial thing (not a game), but still one interesting interface and a chance to work on a product-like project.
If you’re interested, please contact us. If you know someone who might be, please forward them the link.
As a side note, this is a full time position for our NY offices. Due to the way this is deployed and tested (it is not a web project), and because it is supposed to take a while, it cannot be a freelance or remote gig.
