"I rob banks because that's where the money is."
Starfighter makes CTFs (games you play by programming). Our first one is planned for public launch soon. It will be the most fun you've had coding in ages. Early levels will be accessible to anyone, but it will offer plenty of challenges to experts.
Becoming a top Starfighter player is a direct path to receiving lucrative job offers from the best tech companies in the world, because you'll have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that you can do the work these companies need done.
Our games are free forever for players. How? We’ll never pass out your contact details unless you ask us to.
Starfighter is Erin Ptacek, Thomas Ptacek, and Patrick McKenzie. We’re on the Internets if you’d like to talk.
Employers want to recruit more qualified engineers than there are identifiable, qualified engineers presently looking for jobs. We keep an eye what players do in Starfighter games, since progress in them (by construction) signals engineering talent.
We intend to get in touch with very talented players. We’ll be interested in talking about the game, about what you’ve built, and about what you want to do in the future. If your future goals include “Get a better job!”, we can help make that happen. If not, no worries.
We have agreements with a small number of companies to find qualified engineers and introduce them to the companies. These clients pay us for introductions which result in placements.
If you don’t want to talk or you don’t want to explore switching jobs, no worries.
We look forward to see what you build.
