  • Deep understanding of creating mobile apps for iOS and Android
  • Deep understanding of the tools and processes involved in operating a game-as-a-service
  • Proven ability to think strategically as well as recent hands-on programming experience
  • You have created applications that serve thousands of people at a time with ease
  • Strong understanding of OOP and modern software design principles
  • A strong desire to build something that people really want
  • Mentor and assist junior and intermediate developers to build their skills 
  • Project management to plan task scheduling and assignment


It'd be a big plus if you have:


  • Experience shipping social or mobile applications (iOS, Android, Facebook, etc)
  • Back-end or full-stack development experience (PHP, MongoDB, Docker, etc.)
  • Experience with AWS
  • Working knowledge or experience with Unix/Linux
  • Continuous integration and automated testing experience
