Software Engineer for Duke gaming startup

Hi all,

Neat opportunity for a software engineering student at Duke.  This is to work with Peter Lamar, a Fuqua student starting a gaming company. 


Software Engineer Opportunity

Are you interested in 3D gaming development?  Want to work on a ground breaking educational project in the medical field?


We are seeking 1-3 undergraduate engineers to assist in the development of a second proof of concept for a situation-based learning game that trains medical professionals. This is an exciting opportunity to work for a start-up company developing a serious game that is unlike anything that currently exists!


We believe we have identified a great opportunity to develop a scalable solution to the current education challenges facing the US Medical system.  Come work and train with an experienced Electronic Arts video game developer who made the Madden series.  In addition, our team includes MBA students at the Fuqua School of Business with expertise in medical device engineering, software product management, physician training, management consulting, as well as an experienced serial Entrepreneur from the alumni community.

This is a great opportunity if you are interested in video game development, simulation, and entrepreneurship.



·         Self driven

·         Enterprising

·         Innovative

·         Some experience with AI or Computer Graphics

·         Familiarity with the Unity platform

·         2 years experience with C++, C# or Javascript

We are willing to train the right candidate.


As a Computer Science major, I went to work for Electronic Arts on the Madden Team. After 3 years I joined a learning game startup called 360ed, where my team took a grant from the American Burn Association and implemented "Burn Center" (, a medical learning game targeted to Doctors and First Responders. This game was a hit and went on to win at IITSEC 2008 in the serious games competition. 360ed returned to its charter to deliver k-12 solutions, and I am interested in starting a company to continue where Burn Center left off, creating learning simulations for various audiences within Healthcare. I have recently started my MBA at Duke and recruited a team which is currently developing this business opportunity.
