I'm Jacob Keane, a freelance
I’ve got more than 10 years of programming experience, working on a vast range of projects during that time and have spent the last few years working as a freelance programmer for a variety of clients, from small indie startups to well known brands such as Disney and Lexus. I’m also working on some of my own indie games & projects on the side!
But what do you do?
I specialize in Unity3D development, as I’ve been using it for the vast majority of projects I’ve worked on in the past 5 years, and during this time I’ve become extremely familiar with the engine and some of the lesser known features / issues – whether it’s UNET, VR, Mecanim, UI, 3d or 2d, or any other part of it, I should be familiar with it!
I’ve been doing Virtual Reality development in Unity since the Oculus DK1, and have now shipped projects for most of the current VR headsets, including the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Google Cardboard and the Samsung GearVR!
Mobile App Development
Web Back-ends & More!
I’m also competent at backend development, both using modern frameworks such as Laravel or doing bespoke PHP & MySQL development and creating a solution from scratch.
Whether it’s development on a small part of an app / game as part of a team, or creating a whole project solo, I’m comfortable working with any team size.
I’ve got more than 10 years of programming experience of a vast range of projects, and more than 5 years of experience developing in Unity alone – by this point, I know the engine like the back of my hand! Oh, and if you’re more bothered about on paper qualifications, I have a First Class BSc (Hons) Computer Games Programming Degree from Teesside University.
Efficent & Rapid Development
I’m committed to constantly optimizing my development process. One of my core aims when working is to complete the work in the most efficient way possible. Whether this is via productivity boosting tools such as ReSharper or automating repetitive development processes, I can guarantee I’m not going be sitting around wasting time! I’ve built up a toolset of scripts & extensions for Unity that I can reuse to automate common tasks, and I’m well versed in Unity editor scripting, and can easily create bespoke tools tailor made to automating tasks for your project!
Whether you want your project completed as fast as possible, over a weekend, or you’re not worried about when it’s done by and you just want it done as cheaply as possible, talk to me about it, and we’ll work out a solution for you!
