Nintendo is looking for candidates with smart device game app development experience, those who know a great deal about the particular qualities of smartphone graphics, those with network game server development experience and, finally, those who have worked with Unity, Cocos2d-x and Unreal Engine.

For the Tokyo listing, the job is for the developing various software for smart devices. It entails dealing with the server system, with client apps and with the “library”. (“Library” refers to the reusable set of code.)
