Fancy working on Wine to help push Steam Play? CodeWeavers are hiring

By - | Views: 7,600

CodeWeavers, the company that supports Wine development that's working with Valve on Steam Play are looking to recruit full-time developers to push it forwards.

CodeWeavers recently partnered with Valve Software to integrate Wine into the Steam for Linux client as a part of the Steam Play (Proton) initiative.  This allows Linux gamers to play Windows games on Linux more easily. We need new, full-time developers to improve Wine's ability to run games.

What will you need to work with them? They require strong C language skills, you obviously need to be very familiar with Linux, a good understanding of build systems, know your way around debugging problems and so on.

This is great, if they're after more developers it shows just how serious they are about pushing Steam Play forwards to really improve Linux gaming for those titles that will never come to Linux.

Looking over it, they seem to give the choice of working with them in their Minnesota (USA) office or working remotely so that should open the position up to plenty of interested developers.

On top of that, they're also after a QA Team Member if that's more your thing although that's for their CrossOver product which also uses Wine.

Hat tip to Nod.

That's cool news. I live close enough to commute there. However, I'm not the right guy for this.
