Recruiting for:
Artists, Programmers, Producers, Technical Directors

How'd you like to work for Melbourne House / Beam Software, most recently known as creators of the real-time strategy classic KKND and its upcoming sequel KKND2: Krossfire?
We're located in Melbourne, Australia, voted the world's most liveable city, far from the dreary drizzle of England and the crime-related anxiety of the US. Our city has some of the best (and cheapest) restaurants in the world, and the live music scene here is unparalleled. Our airy modern offices are just a couple of hundred metres from the Melbourne Grand Prix track and Albert Park Lake and a short tram ride to the city center, cosmopolitan shopping strip Prahran, the majestic Royal Botanic Gardens, or the beach (click here to sample the view from our building).
We're looking to hire talent from overseas - artists, programmers, producers, technical directors - all with prior experience in the games industry, to join and share expertise with our company of 140 talented game-loving people.
Looking for a change of pace in your life? Looking for a place where you and your skills could really make a difference? Well, then maybe you should be talking to us.

Star C Programmers
We need champion C programmers. If you are a legendary C/C++ programmer (and we will test you) with a passion for great games then we have the job for you.
Two flavors of job exist. A good knowledge and love of computer games is essential for both of these positions:

System Programmer
Write the powerful low level systems the games are built upon, and tame the latest in games hardware.
In addition to C/C++, valuable experience would include: real-time systems, multi-processor programming with low-level orientation, embedded systems, assembler and graphics, particularly 3D.
Opportunity to work on the PC, 3D accelerators, Playstation and Nintendo 64. We will provide specialist training, but you have to be a star C programmer first. Must like Dilbert.

Application Programmers
Use the systems to build the game, mainly PC Windows based. In addition to C/C++ valuable experience would include: Windows 95 / 98, Windows SDK + MFC, Direct X particularly Direct 3D or Direct Play.

Associate Producer
High level of people and communication skills.
Advanced Budget management experience.
Detailed knowledge of Computer Games.
Previous experience in organizing large scale complex projects.
Proof of the above skills is essential.
