A robot programmer for a home improvement company has been told he’s on the fast track to becoming a full-time game programmer, with his job title and salary set to rise to $300,000 a year.
Robo-Programmer (RBP) is a title created by game designer and programmer Chris Larkin, which has since been used by developers of a number of games, including Minecraft, to describe a skilled programmer who is also a professional actor.
Larkin’s website advertises that the title is a reference to the robot programming game, which is used to train a bot for a particular task, such as setting up the internet and making a bot-based phone app.
The developer’s salary for RBP is listed at $300k (£190k), and he’s been promised a starting salary of $250,000 (£175,000) a year, with bonuses up to $150,000.
The game has been popular with people who want to make a career in video games, and it is also used to teach actors how to script their own films, and the ability to make money from their own work.
The game’s developer, Double Fine, has also created a game based on the title called The Big Picture, which was released in October last year.RBP’s title is an apparent reference to his own job title, with a salary of “programmer”, which is a fairly high level of responsibility for a programmer, especially in the tech sector, with the average salary for a full time programmer in the US being around $90,000, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The title could be a reference also to the RBP robot programming, a type of artificial intelligence program that has been used in a number, and currently many, of the games that are available for the internet.RBB, or Robotic BrainBots, are programmed with a range of skills, including video-game skills, speech, and a sense of self-awareness.
They can be controlled by humans via video chat, and are capable of playing many different games, as well as being used to make apps, which allow people to share information and share resources.
The RBP job is for a person who works in a team of two, who can be the “programmers”, or the “robot programmers”, or a “system programmer”.
It is unclear how much money the job will bring to the developer, or whether the robot is actually an RBP, but it is a promising move for a developer of such a title, as it could be an opportunity to develop a new line of games for the company, which Larkin said he hopes to launch sometime next year.
Larkins job title is now in a position to make more money, with another video game called “Tiny and Dandy” expected to release in the coming months.
