How to hire game developers? Skills to look for, interview questions, and more

Gaming is a demanding industry that requires the most innovative minds. Catering to a global audience is a massive pressure that requires a deep understanding of the technology and user demands. For this, the need to hire game developers with strong industry knowledge is essential for success. However, technical hiring can be a tough job, especially if you're undertaking such a task for the first time.

To make things simple and help you hire game developers who can add value to your team, check out our full guide on how to hire game developers.

Skills to look for in a game developer?

Hiring a proficient game developer takes more than just scanning through stacks of applications. At a high level, game developers should have the following skills in their arsenal:

1. Programming and software development

A strong foundation in programming is essential for any game developer. Proficiency in programming languages such as C++, C#, Java, or Python is highly desirable. Game developers should be able to write clean, efficient, and maintainable code. Additionally, knowledge of software development practices, including version control, debugging, and testing, is crucial to ensure the quality and stability of the game.

Possessing software development knowledge can help deliver innovative work. So whenever you're looking to hire game developers or a game development team, consider professionals skilled in software development with knowledge of different programming languages.

2. Mathematics and Physics

Game development often involves complex mathematical and physics concepts. A solid understanding of mathematics, including algebra, geometry, calculus, and linear algebra, is essential for tasks such as collision detection, physics simulations, and character animation. Game developers need to be able to apply these concepts to create realistic and engaging gameplay experiences.

Hence, when looking to hire new game developers, try to identify professionals who are proficient with these concepts.

3. Experience with game engines

Game engines like Unity or Unreal Engine provide powerful tools and frameworks that simplify the game development process. Experience with these engines demonstrates an understanding of the development pipeline and the ability to leverage pre-built functionalities, resulting in more efficient and streamlined development.

Game developers familiar with game engines can focus on implementing game-specific logic and mechanics, rather than reinventing the wheel. Additionally, expertise with specific engines allows developers to optimize performance, utilize visual scripting, and integrate third-party plugins effectively.

4. Knowledge of game design principles

While game design and development are separate disciplines, a game developer with a basic understanding of game design principles can contribute significantly to the development process. Familiarity with concepts such as player motivation, game mechanics, user experience, and level design allows developers to align their technical implementations with the overall design vision. This understanding fosters effective collaboration with game designers and ensures that the gameplay experience is cohesive and enjoyable.

5. Problem-solving and adaptability

Game development is an iterative process filled with challenges and uncertainties. A skilled game developer should excel in problem-solving and possess the ability to adapt to changing circumstances. They need to be resourceful in finding solutions to technical obstacles, optimizing game performance, and addressing unexpected issues that arise during development.

Hence when hiring a game developer assessing their capacity to think critically and troubleshoot effectively is essential.

6. A master of interpersonal skills

Regardless of whether you're hiring a remote game developer or a web developer, the ability to communicate with confidence is a must-have skill. From attending meetings to taking part in brainstorming sessions, a developer must be able to speak his/her mind and contribute towards the goal. Finding people who are masters of the art of communication is always a primary requirement.

Create a hiring funnel

Identifying the best applications for hiring game developers can be a little tough without prior experience. To make the process simpler, working with a hiring funnel can feel helpful and make shortlisting applications a lot easier.

Top 10 game developer interview questions

When looking to hire game developers, it is important to test their knowledge with awareness about the niche industry. Here’s a list of interview questions you can utilize to vet applicants while conducting interviews.

There are various reasons that make C++ the ideal game development language. Factors like the availability of SDKs and control over C and Java are often stated as the primary reason. Check how many factors can the developer in front of you mention while answering the question.

The process of developing visualizations by drawing individual pixels in an image is called pixel art. It is often used as an alternative to 3D model rendering.

The delay between player inputs and server actions is referred to as lag in online gaming. Try to understand how deep does the developer dives when answering this question. See if he/she also mentions steps for reducing lag in games.

Some of the most commonly used HTML5 framework game engines include:

  • Construct 2
  • Turbulence
  • CAAT
  • Phaser

Game developers use tools like Eclipse, ADT, Android SDK, and Hudson to develop Android games. Also, try asking the developers about functions and purposes for each.

Vertex Buffer Objects can easily be created in very simple steps. See if the developer is able to begin all three with perfection.

  • Generate a new buffer object with glGenBuffers()
  • Connect buffer object with glBindBiffer()
  • Copy the vertex data to buffer object

Android offers quite a few different options when it comes to storage - internal, external, network connections, and SQLite databases.

A number of different gaming engines can be utilized for developing games. Engines like

  • AndEngine
  • Rokon
  • Android-2D-Engine
  • jMonkey Engine
  • Cocos2D-Android

Commonly seen problems faced by game developers deal with Garbage collectors, lack of third-party libraries, compatibility issues with consoles, and small communities.

The basic structure of developing games includes developing game interface, integration of interface, and the game source code.
