Job Description
TCG Machines is a start-up company serving the very niche market of comic stores and hobby shops which deal in trading card games (TCGs), such as Magic: The Gathering , Pokémon , and Yu-Gi-Oh! . Funding is being acquired through the NRC-IRAP Green Youth Employment program, which necessitates applicants be 30 years of age or less . We have an exciting and unique opportunity for a skilled and energetic Software Developer, Engineer, or Computer Scientist to join our small team in the early stages of product development. In this position you will provide programming expertise and take the lead on software development for new and proprietary technology. You will have a highly flexible schedule and work within a framework based on deliverables and progress, not hours worked.

TCG Machines does not currently have a dedicated office space, so it is imperative that the successful applicant has their own computer and internet, and is able to work from home. Applicants based in Calgary and surrounding area will be given preference, but location will by no means be a deciding factor for the successful candidate.

What you will do:

  • Design, develop, and deliver an intuitive, web-based GUI which interfaces with customizable sorting algorithms
  • Develop working prototypes involving computer vision to allow product ideas to be explored internally
  • Develop code which allows for cross-referencing of dynamic internet databases

You have:

  • A Bachelors degree in Computer Science/Engineering or related field, or equivalent professional experience
  • A knowledge of TCGs such as Magic: The Gathering – this will give your application flying and trample

You must have a demonstrated ability with:

  • Software product design, definition and documentation
  • Software prototyping 1+ years of experience, using web technologies and/or rapid prototyping tools, with an emphasis on highly intuitive user interfaces
  • Software development 1+ years of experience, with a firm grasp of web technologies and database systems
  • OpenCV, Python, and C/C++ experience would be considered an asset

Your personal characteristics include:

  • You are self-motivated and can work productively on your own
  • You take pride in writing clean, quality code, but can balance this with business practicality
  • You are a high-energy individual who enjoys challenges and working within deadlines
