Riccardo Loggini, Junior Programmer, joins d3t
16th Jan 2018
Riccardo Loggini joined the d3t team as a Junior Programmer on 8th January 2018. Riccardo tells us a bit more about himself…
Tell us about your background and experience prior to d3t?
I am a software engineer. Born and raised in Italy, I spent the last two years in Denmark doing a
MSc degree in Digital Media Engineering in Copenhagen (Denmark) where I specialised in real-time computer graphics.
I was choosing from different job opportunities from all over Europe but working in games has always been a dream since when I was 8. I got in contact with Liam, a recruiter from Amiqus who proposed me an interview for d3t. I was attracted by the variety of projects to be involved in each year. It will be a great opportunity to extend my knowledge in games programming.
I was finally convinced after talking with Andy (Technical Director) and Lyndon (Programming Lead). Their attitude was really inspiring and I am looking for people like them to work with.
What was the recruitment process like?
I had a programming test which I was asked to complete and return in 24 hours. It consisted of adding features to a game. It was good since you can get creative and show your best skills. After passing that I got a Skype interview with Andy and Lyndon.
Tell us some interesting facts about yourself.
I see computer graphics as a tool to make dreams come to reality and that particularly happens when games are made. I have huge experience as a gamer. Just to give you an idea, at the age of 17 I was leading an Italian esport team of 30 active members playing Battlefield. Gaming became an addiction and I eventually changed myself from a gamer to a game maker engineer. This is my way to stay with games and still make a living out of it.
Apart from games, I like travelling (of course) and going to dinner with friends, tasting any kind of food and have very big laughs together.[vc_single_image image=”3663″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”]If you want to join our talented team, why not check out our vacancies?
