Actionscript Developer

We look for an Actionscript Expert with an emphasis on Actionscript programming skills rather than Flash authoring to assist development of extensions and customizations to our customer’s video player code base. Development experience beyond Actionscript alone is important to provide a broad background of best software practices and enable work in other languages. Graphical skills are not necessary but beneficial for correct implementation as designs will often be supplied separately.

Required skills and knowledge:

  • 3+ years of Actionscript experience, including version 3

  • Javascript experience

  • Strong written and spoken English

Preferred skills and knowledge:

  • Experience with Flowplayer, Flash CS3/CS4 graphics, Flex

  • Academic background in computer science

  • Experience with version control systems (Subversion, CVS, others)

  • Experience working in a command-line driven Unix environment

  • Experience developing isolated components of larger projects

  • Experience with programming languages other than ActionScript

  • Proven track record of relevant work

  • Experience integrating with external API services

Suitable candidates will have significant experience with ActionScript, be up-to-date with respect to ActionScript 3, and have experience with developing non-trivial applications from scratch. The ideal candidate knows how to create well-designed APIs and critique existing APIs with respect to issues like maintainability, correctness and extensibility. Proven experience developing quality code with other team members in long term projects is important. Understanding of object-oriented principles is a must.

You must be comfortable with source code oriented development; development work will be happening in an open development model with version controlled source files. Professionally you are self-motivated and comfortable delivering to deadlines by managing your own time and priorities well, you can handle stress well and are driven, productive and responsible. You contribute well in teams with clear communication and a positive approach to problem solving.
