However, keep in mind that it's more about your skills/competencies and what positions would be a good fit.
Just gonna say, you are probably one of the nicest rioters I've ever seen o.o

Hey Oconnomo,

I don't think we're looking for onsite MDs...but we do have a few former med/pre-med Rioters who are now doing amazing things in unrelated roles

D'awwwwww! Thanks, Shadow Merchant

Does this mean I get a discount when I need to buy a shadow? [Peter Pan reference mayhaps...]

I'm currently an undergrad studying towards a Computer Engineering degree. I've been intrigued by the inner-workings of technology ever since I've been old enough to remember using computers and playing video games. I also currently have a co-op position at Toshiba working on a support team for POS (Point of Sales) systems and it fits really well with helping me to understand computer hardware as well as the software it takes to interact with said hardware.

Other than working with computer systems I'm also very much interested in what all goes into designing game mechanics/software/engines. Is there anything you could suggest to me (any programs or computer languages) that would be useful to me if I wanted to design software for a game?

Hey DowncastHarp,

I'm not a very technical person myself, but I've been exposed to some of the technologies that gaming companies use. Here's a list of some of the things I've been introduced to [not specific to game mechanics/software/engines, but more overarching in terms of what gaming companies use]:

C++/C#
Java
Flash
Actionscript
Flex
HTML/HTML5
Python
Javascript
Ruby
Rails
MapReduce
Hadoop
Drupal

There are definitely a lot more out there, but you'd probably be able to get more information from reading game tech forums
